Be very careful.. Rules changed recently..
My advice would be to go to the local Asda and explain he WAS shopping etc etc
Asda, like many other supermarkets, will soon quash a parking charge if it is not righteous

these tickets cant be enforced so dont pay it
Sorry but they ARE now.
It all changed a while ago .. Folk are now ending up in court over them..
Up until the change what you are saying was indeed correct, but no longer..
Folk just do not seem to be aware of the extremely deep doodoo someone can get in to ( fiscally ) now and are STILL, almost a year later, still handing out the same advice !! :rolleyes:

CCJs often enough Dave. A Facebook page for a certain town in Derbyshire is full of similar tales and more & more people are saying that ignoring the tickets means a judgement against them.

Yes, they are enforced as breach of contract but can still be enforced. It all depends on how far the company wishes to go and on the response of the ticket recipient.
But what if you didn't sign a contract? So what happens??/ Letter, court....(Civil, I would imagine), judgement......You don't pay, the bailiffs come, but you wife owns everything........What then??

Under present law be it common law wife or official, all things in a shared marital abode are considered ( again in law ) as the property or either and both partners.. That nice little loophole was closed about 5 years ago ( from what I can remember but that time frame could be miles out )

A husband, one bright sunny morning, turns to his lovely wife, "Wife, we're going fishing this weekend, you, me and the dog."

The wife grimaces, "But I don't like fishing!"

"Look! We're going fishing and that's final."

"Do I have to go fishing with you... I really don't want to go!"

"Right I'll give you three choices...
1 You come fishing with me and the dog...
2 You give me a BLOW JOB....
3 or you take it up the ass!"

The wife grimaces again, "But I don't want to do any of those things!"

"Wife I've given you three options.. You'll HAVE to do one of them! I'm going to the garage to sort out my fishing tackle, when I come back I expect you to have made up your mind!"

The wife sits and thinks about it.

Twenty minutes later her husband comes back, "Well! What have you decided? FISHING with me and the dog, BLOW JOB, or ass?"

The wife complains some more and finally makes up her mind, "O.K. I'll give you a blow job!"

"Great!" He says and drops his pants.

The wife is on her knees doing the business. Suddenly she stops, looks up at her Husband, "Oh! It tastes absolutely disgusting... It tastes all shitty!"

"Yes!" says her husband "The dog didn't want to go fishing either."

It used to be that the company could only claim for "loss" of income so an overstayer could argue that a "charge" of £60 - £100 could not considered reasonable if the company took it to court. As a result they did not pursue the matter.

Has the position changed so that it IS now considered reasonable to make such a charge?

This country needs a superhero to tackle these parking thieves! A Shiftzz in tights and a mask, swooping down from tall commercial premises, fighting for the poor repressed out of town motorist/shopper. (y)(y)(y)

Most supermarkets make no charge but (like the case in the OP) the free parking is time limited, the reason being that if it wasn't then the car park would be filled with commuters and/or general shoppers and customers of the store in question would have difficulty parking and shopping there. Supermarkets and other companies provide car parks to encourage people to use them and for no other reason.

A similar defence could still be raised but since the change in the law companies can add administrative costs. When the resulting amount isn't much different from the size of a fine levied by a local authority then the defence is less easy to sustain.
