I was fined £270 for going over the time limit when I had to wait 17 minutes to pay for parking

A MAN has been fined £270 for queuing for 17 minutes to pay for parking – seven minutes longer than allowed.

The unnamed motorist got stuck behind several people who were having problems with the machine but paid for his stay.

But One Parking Solutions fined him because the company only allows a 10-minute break between arriving and paying for parking.

The man, who was visiting Llangrannog, Ceredigion, with his partner, said: “We pulled into the car park and I got out and went straight to the car park but there were a couple of people queuing in front of me.

“There was a bit of a wait and I went to the front to help people use the machine to pay for parking.

“I have helped and paid people before me. I couldn’t have done anything more to pay earlier except jump in the queue.

“There’s no way I’m going to imitate that. It was seven minutes and I couldn’t do anything else.

“It’s a shame because Llangrannog is such a beautiful place and all the little shops down there are great but this issue is going to put people off going there.

“I wouldn’t be happy going back there if I knew what happened to me.

“He appealed his fine to both the car park and the independent complaints body POPLA, both of which said he had to pay.

And because of the failed appeal and refusal to pay, his fine rose to £180 and then £270.

The Sun contacted One Parking Solution for comment.
