We visited the Old Town on Thursday parking in the Rock A Nore car park.
For no good reason I compared the printed time on the ticket with my watch: it was 15 minutes behind – the machine’s clock was running late.
Had it come to a dispute over a fine I could have proven my start time because I paid by card; any hapless motorists caught out would have a hard time if they’d paid by cash.
I wonder how many motorists thinking they were returning on time have found a fine waiting for them.
Doesn’t anyone check these clocks?
Will the council review recent fines I wonder?
