HAVE YOU RECEIVED A PARKING TICKET FROM OVERSTAYING AT McDONALDS?
McDonalds restrict parking using MET (or UKPC) at over 100 outlets including those where McDonalds is on a retail or out of town outlet. McDonalds claim that this is to ensure that their customers can always find a parking space, and to do this there will be a variable period of free parking time available -typically anything 45 minutes – 2 hours is commonplace. It is always their customers who happen to stay longer – say for a children’s party or when it is busy who always receive a parking ticket.

Here at Parking Ticket Appeals Service, we are well aware of some of the tricks that MET use to issue parking charges, many of which have been reported on the news and in the press. Our appeals handlers are aware that MET will often issue a parking ticket to customers who visit a place more than once and have been notified where a parent was collecting a child from a party at McDonalds got issued with a parking ticket.
Our staff are also fully aware of cases where a motorist was issued parking charge at a retail park – in a section which was not even managed by MET.
