Fuming over parking fine

THERE are lots of different sorts, some are more expensive than others and in some you can hardly open a door without causing damage to your neighbours.

THERE are lots of different sorts, some are more expensive than others and in some you can hardly open a door without causing damage to your neighbours.

It’s something most of us have to do most of the time: Parking.

As well as Kirklees’ plans to devote a whole six, yes that’s six, spaces to people who car share around town, there are other parking-related problems which befall the posters on www.examiner.co.uk’s forums.

Comfortablenumb, who was on the wrong end of bad luck at the Great Northern retail park, said: “Anyone got a parking ticket here?

“We were parked outside Next in a disabled bay and badge either blown onto or knocked by wife’s stick onto seat.

“We were in Next for 10 minutes. Ticket £75 or else!”

EmperorJ has turned to religion to get his tickets cancelled in the past, judging from this post: “Was the badge still visible to anyone looking in the window? It could be argued as an act of God, and the parking ticket targets of the official concerned.”

Positively glowing with civic pride, Waspish added: “Shopping in Huddersfield? Why would you? It can be very very expensive that can. We’ve got lots of civil servant pensions to pay for you know.... Stop out of ‘Uddersfield mate. We do and we live here.”

Dave50 has had enough as well.

He said: “Why are there no parking spaces outside the cinema on match days?

“Are football fans using the car park? If so they should be clamped & charged £100 to be released or, alternatively, everyone should be able to use all the parking around that area and not have stewards stopping you.

“I am sick of football fans taking over the area when there is a match on.”
