Parking meters in Palmerston North

Joyce from Levin

Hi Always make sure when you pay the parking meter in Palmerston North that you get a receipt from the machine. I parked in a space, paid the meter for 2 hours and thought great, that's sorted. Lucky that I always get a receipt from the machine. When I returned to my car there was a ticket on my car stating that I had not paid for the first 30 minutes of parking. As my receipt clearly indicated that i had paid the full 2 hours for parking I screwed the ticket up and thought that was that.. Interesting the car that was parked next to me and paid the meter just before I did, I noticed also had an infringement notice on their windscreen. Then through the mail came a reminder notice for the unpaid fine, stating that if I didn't pay the fine the matter would go to court as I had committed a criminal offence.What really hosed me off was that they had accessed all my personal details and private information, and telling me that I had committed a criminal offence. I then sent them a letter with a copy of my receipt, also suggesting that the over zealous parking warden needed to go to spec savers and that an apology was in order. Still waiting for that one. Morale of the story. Always get a receipt when feeding the parking meter in Palmerston North or any other place that has these horrible monsters.
