A faulty camera system has been blamed for Perth motorists being issued with a string of parking tickets.
Town and City Parking have apologised after motorists were sent fines when they had simply driven through the St Catherine’s Retail Park a couple of times in a day.
This led to several £70 fines being issued for allegedly parking longer than the two and a half hours permitted in the customer car park.
An investigation by the company revealed that it was in the wrong and it has apologised for the inconvenience caused.
“For a short period of time we had a problem with the time capture mechanism within the cameras at St Catherine’s Retail Park in Perth,” said Town and City Parking
“This led to data not being processed properly. We would like to apologise unreservedly to any customers who incorrectly received a parking charge notice during this period. We will obviously cancel these.
“If you are one of these customers, please contact us. The problem with the cameras has now been resolved. Again we would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
“Please contact our appeals team on 0845 230 3081, or at 5 South Inch Business Centre, Shore Road, Perth, PH2 8BW. We will investigate all appeals individually.”
