HI

Quite shocked to receive a parking ticket in the post. The driver parked for 77 mins, 17 over the one hour limit. I rang the restaurant and they said there are notices up. I understand that they need to monitor parking because they are near Heathrow, but I would have thought that the people genuinely eating and drinking should have been allowed to park and I thought that a disabled badge would have given at least 3 hours, the maximum on double yellows?

Also, the driver drove in and out several times before there was parking available, then parked in the disabled spot. Does the camera cancel each time you leave, or could it be judging the vehicle on the wrong entry & exit times?

It's camera evidence on entry and exit. It's Ā£100 or Ā£50 if paid within 14 days, the usual. What are the chances?

Many of you may wish to have a 'drive round' the roads surrounding this site.

Now I realise which one it is, I understand why the OP was driving in and out numerous times trying to find a space. It is very, very popular with taxi drivers waiting for incoming flights at Heathrow. Consequently, it is extremely difficult to just drive in and out at times, let alone find a space. It's one of those places that justifies parking management but..........done properly!

I have been trying to get myself a ticket here for ages but keep failing miserably!

Yes exactly, did you see the signs? When I rang the McDs to enquire they said it was signposted everywhere, even inside. None of the occupants noticed these signs.

I tried the link to see but it didn't work.

I tried the link again and it worked, yes the car was parked in the disabled space directly behind (ie alongside) the blue car in the view that the link shows.

Iā€™m awaiting a response to the appeal still, so no news yet.
