Drivers should not moan when they get a parking ticket in Grimsby!
Do we moan about lack of parking, but then think nothing of parking where we shouldn't or longer than we are allowed?
In a recent letter in Viewpoint, a reader bemoaned a parking ticket, blaming the business of the car park for the delay in leaving within the time allowed.
Here a reader responds - add your comment below, and read today's Viewpoint spread in your Grimsby Telegraph.
HOW dare Anne Arnold complain about being fined for parking in the B&M car park for longer (or not as she says) than the statutory two hours just because it took her a while to find the parking space in the first place?

The reason it took her a while to park is because it is full of people like her who are using it as a free car park to go into town rather than just using it while shopping in the store (yes, I know you used the store, but for two hours or more?).
Perhaps, Anne, if you had parked in Freshney Place car park while visiting town you would find yourself paying far less than the £95 you are quoting in your letter. In fact, £93 less!
Maybe you will have learned your lesson (and so, hopefully, will anyone else reading the letter) and stop using it as a free car park.
