Parking fine is unsympathetic
12:40pm Tuesday 14th August 2012 in Letters
I AM incensed by the actions of the company now running the car-parking at ALDI in Stockton Heath, Euro Car Parks.
My wife is disabled and has her blue badge displayed in the car window as instructed. This morning we received a fixed penalty notice of £70 for overstaying the 90 minute time limit by nine minutes last Monday.
Every car park in the country is sympathetic to disabled users and allows some lee-way for someone who walks very slowly due to the arthritis in her legs.
Aldi advertises that its prices are cheap, we shop there every week, or we have until now. I have worked out that all we have saved by shopping there in the last six months will be taken by this exorbitant charge, £70 00 is all of my wife’s pension for a week, she claims no other benefits.
