Car Park Tickets Now need your Reg no :>(

As a person who goes into town hardly ever, I was very surprised to see that at the back of the old Woolworths you now have to put in the last 3 digits of your car reg ! I presume this is so that you can not give your ticket to someone else. This annoyed me because I had 50 mins left on my 1 hour ticket that I would normally give away. I have already paid for a space for another 50 mins so why cant I ive it to someone else. Sorry rant over

I agree, if the 'big society' is part of this countries ethos, then why can't we give our parking time to others if we want? Vote with our 'Wheels' and go to a different car park where they don't do that!

Yes, the car park has already been paid for the time, it has no right to charge for it again.  But then again those two car parks have always been a mega rip-off and I never park there (£4.50 for 3 hours in the evening to see a show at the Regent?  No thanks). This is just one more reason to never park there.

What do they charge at the old T A car park

I agree with all the above. If MY money has paid for one hour of parking and I don't use it all then I would like to think I could give that ticket to someone else to use.
If we're talking about the NCP car park in Cox Lane, then their T&Cs have always included a non-transferability clause, so to be fair, this may be one you can't pin on the anti-car squad at IBC.
It's another one of the (un)intended consequences of out sourcing council services - profit or service?
