Just got back from an appointment to find the parking arrangements have yet again changed.

It's not my local hospital and I attend maybe once a year.

 

Things used to be simple with a barrier entry/ticket then after your appointment put your ticket in the machine then pay before exiting.

Then the barrier got smashed off and they relied on a person taking reg numbers and times giving you ticket to pay in the coffee shop before you exit.

 

Today's visit was most confusing, with people waiting at the ticket machine not sure whether to pay before of when you exit.

It appears most people were of the opinion that you pay when you are about to exit as they have cameras set up.

 

I checked with reception and they said you can pay before or after.

Very strange I thought and proceeded with my appointment.

When I returned I punched in the reg number expecting it to say how much, but nothing, you have to the guess how long you were parked up for!!!

 

I paid for two hours as I checked my watch and it was correct.

 

I've since checked my dash cam and i arrived at 14.34, took about a minute or two to find a space big enough for my van and left at 16.37 buying my ticket at 16.35.

 

So worst case scenario is i overstayed by 3 minutes with the best case being 1 minute.

Do you think this an automatic penalty from these sharks or do they have a grace period?

Also, are the ticket machines linked to the camera system for timings.

 

Don't want a £100 fine around xmas time.

 

Tried to contact the hospital for clarification but they haven't got a clue.

the 10 minute grace periof will apply so if you do get a NTK in a coupel of days time you can be assured that it isnt a valid demand. That doesnt mean it will be automatically cnacelled but you wont be paying them anything and you will have 3 chances of appealing or moaning about it.

Timeas are important so leaving them on has allowed us to respond to your post and reach a quick understanding of your problem. Now iof the parking co do read this and identify you then they know that they are in breach of the conditions they operate under if they send out the demand in the firstb place so would then hopefully not be so stupid. However, stupid is the byword for parking co's so expect a letter. When you get it come back adn we will suggest a suitable response

One semi-politely telling them to Foxtrot Oscar as they have no chance in court might do the trick.


We could do with some help from you.
