« on: May 31, 2012, 06:42:53 PM »

Just like a parking ticket, £60 but £30 if u pay straight away! West George street, you know where lloyds bar is? Loads of people are getting refunds or the fine canceled cos the system is not 100% yet!

Sounds like the same problem highlighted on Rip Off Britain the other night.  They were parking in their back gardens but had to enter them via a car park which had number plate recognition camera's
Made it to retirement  :)

I'm all for giving out fines to people who abuse bus lanes etc but they need to do it right!
Ross, that's where I was goin! Maybe your misses works for the letting agent I'm renting from, if so see if she can get my rent down!! If only! Lol. Are you coming to the next Glasgow meet?
