Morrisons Hereford

Recommended Posts

I've just received a parking ticket from Hereford Morrisons for a total time of 2hrs 51 minutes. I was given a parking ticket from a lady with about an hour and a half on. I used the ticket and then returned to my car an hour later to put a 2-hour ticket on. Is this insufficient?

Someone help please!

Go to customer services. I got a fine through the post alleging I had parked there overnight! It got binned in 3 seconds!

I actually think you’re f.u.c.ked! If I’ve got this right, some kind person handed you their parking permit that had 90 minutes left on it. Nothing unreasonable about thst. You then displayed that ticket in the window of your car and then near the time of its  expiry time you updated your parking time with a ticket you generated.

if that’s the case and I’ve got it right, you’re on dodgy ground because the first permit that you displayed wasn’t legally yours to display. Albeit it was a kindly gift, it doesn’t matter. It wasn’t your permit and consequently not yours to use. In short the tickets are not transferable and alas you are legally liable to pay the fine.

Im sorry it’s not what you want to hear but that’s the way I see it and I’m afraid I’m probably right. Whilst handing one another a parking permit that’s got plenty of time left on it is common practice and a good neighbourly thing to do, it’s simply not valid because the original ticket was not generated by you for your vehicle.

Me? I’d pay the fine and put this one down to a bitter experience. My warmest regards.

I'm thinking that the Store will have a camera which records the time your vehicle entered their car park ( ANPR ) and another camera recording the time you left .

i expect that there is a noticeboard  board tucked away with the conditions you have to comply with , one condition might be that you must not stay longer than 2 hours maximen .

I use this shop virtually every day. The car parking is an ANPR camera system. Third party operator. I have never bought a ticket in that supermarket car park. Only had one penalty ticket which alleged I had parked overnight. I got let off as I was innocent. The store is getting serious parking abuse from casual parkers' tho. It's bound to increase with the student accommodation being built on the old Rockfield site opposite.

I guess that what you did was walk to the  Customer Services in Morrisons and told them plus paying a £1 for two hours parking  ? LOL 

Don't answer that it might  just  incriminate you !

I took photos of all four machines showing the message 'Not in use'  :Happy_32:

Ignore it, as soon as you do anything about it you are liable ( Google it) They will get bored with chasing eventually.
