Can you please explain how this was. There were no signs or cameras at the ASDA/COSTCO car park at the Reading game. In fact there have not been any there for the last several years. I have been parking there regularly, checking there were no signs before every game since they removed the signs several years ago. I parked there up until the Man U game this season, but over Xmas found out they have re-erected signs etc. Hence my OP on here. I am well aware that the law changed after the Beavis court ruling, and am very wary as to where I now park. I have no problem with paying for car parking anywhere, but I am damned if I am going to line these firms pockets just for not checking whether it's signed & monitored. If you want to take a chance and ignore these signs do so at your own risk. Because it is a big risk now if you do. As for the cameras, they are not ANPR but take photographs. They then apply to DVLA for the owners details, which the DVLA are more than happy to give them for a small fee. The law used to be that they would have to prove who was ACTUALLY DRIVING the car. That is no longer true. The law now is that they are allowed to pursue the registered owner instead. These firms I believe, are now able to do all the court legal stuff before hand online so their costs are now marginal and so easy for them to do.
If you have been in this situation as you say many times, you have been incredibly fortunate. I guess this would be before the law change, (which I know from personal experience has happened to people I know). I would not advise anyone to do the same these days. :bluebird:

Spot on, they pay the DVLA £2.50 and they give the keepers details to the parking company, a corrupt system with a lot making money off the motorists back. The days of ignoring letters are gone as they will do court, ignore that and you've got a CCJ, this could prevent you getting a mortgage, phone contract and even finance for a season ticket. Best to avoid at all cost on match days and don't give these lowlife wankers the opportunity.

Only one camera at entrance by greggs if ypu enter via asda garage and park that side you will not be monitored.. so only get ticket if come around which to me is impossible to check unless they do it before the 90mins allowed.

Theres a camera facing the road leading at the back of costa greggs etc. Also the parking at the back of those premises is a no no. I parked there earlier. The parking bloke said he was about to book everyone so i moved.

Its a £90 fine backed by court. They will take you to court so ignoring them is a no no.

A £90 fine is not worth 6 years fucked up credit files.

It’s not a fine, it’s an invoice.

As stated it’s an invoice not a fine.
Do not engage with the company via text,email or phone. Make no contact with them whatsoever. Nasty letters will be sent, bin them. I recently received a “fine” from Euro park company showing my number plate....all correspondence put in the bin.
I would only pay a fine from the council or police.
Just because I'm paranoid it doesn't mean they're not talking about me

You can't bin a letter when it comes from Northampton County Court, by doing so will certainly lead to a CCJ against you. I thought the same until I received a letter from NCC and if I ignored that it would have screwed me from getting finance for my season ticket. These tossers are now doing court frequently and the days of ignoring are gone, I thought they had given up with me until the letter came with a court date, they've got up to 6 years to get the money out of you.

There are no cameras in asda side of car park I double checked today... their camera is by Gregg entrance if you enter asda petrol station rd there's no cameras in asda side of car park either, only way can book you is if they go around note time they've seen car and come back 90mins later considering amount of cars in whole of the car park seriously doubt they will do that. Instead they probably monitor Greggs camera and wander around looking for cars that passed that way.

How it used to work was that the invoice is against the driver, not the owner of the vehicle. Therefore you could tell the issuing firm that whilst it is your car, you were not the driver on that occasion. You do not have to tell them who was driving. This can put enough doubt for them not to pursue it. Worked for me before.

It's all changed and it is now Notice To Keeper, so they now can go after the keeper without knowing who was driving. It's all corrupt and they've now got the law fully behind them. The floodgates have opened after the Beavis v Parking Eye case and they are doing court knowing they've got a supreme court ruling stating the penalty charge is justified. Best to avoid at all costs, I got taken to court over a £1 flipped ticket and ended up paying £200 in court add loss of wages, fuel and putting the case together the final total was in the region of £400.

All you people are funny as f**k saying it’s corrupt and things like that you entitled bastards :lol:

Somebody owns that car park and that car park is for people who want to go shopping and they can use it for free.

The owners of that car park don’t want it used for football fans who aren’t going to spend a penny in there are taking up spaces for people who do want to shop in those shops.

To stop people using there car park the way they allow you the fine you for doing so. Why people are acting as if there bastards who are all out to get you I don’t know.

It’s simple really follow the rules and don’t risk getting fined. Don’t follow the rules and risk getting fined. But please don’t moan and cry about it like you’ve been hard done by when you’ve broken the rules for f**k sake.

Rant over :lol: :lol:

Wise words of wisdom.

Personally, as someone else mentioned, I think Asda are missing a trick here.

If they allowed parking on match days for anyone who spends over a certain amount, say £20, pop their receipt on the dashboard, job done!

You can park for £5 across the road (a saving of £15 on the day) under that theory ;) :ayatollah:

Yes, but only if you need something :thumbright:

I find it odd that people can't get 'waiver tickets' from any of the outlets in the complex, as by not doing so they are effectively limiting the time even genuine shoppers can spend in the many large shops within its boundaries

I can understand the frustration of shops that their customers can't park when there's a match going on (Wales included) but you could also ask why shoppers would want to go to that particular complex at those times in the full knowledge that it's going to be carnage getting in and out? :?

They might have no other option to go at that time and many people won’t have the full knowledge that there’s a game on not everybody likes football.
