Dear Waqar, Thank you for visiting the Holiday Inn High Wycombe. Please accept our apologies for the fact that you have received a parking fine while visiting the hotel and also be rest assured that as a business the ultimate reason of having these cameras is to avoid people not leaving cars in our car park. Parking in our hotel is free whilst vehicle registration numbers are registered in a terminal located at Reception or the Bar area. I can confirm that there are several notice boards in the car park, signs at either side of the hotels entrance, posters displayed immediately as you walk into the lobby area, on the reception desk, bar, as well as cards placed on the tables in the bar and lobby area outlining the above procedure. We have the parking procedure in place so that we are able to provide hotel users with free car parking and avoid non hotel users abusing it. As I believe this is a genuine oversight I am happy to assist you by contacting ParkingEye to request that the fine be waived. Could you please contact me directly on admin@hihighwycombe.com and inform me of your PCN reference number. I would like to take his opportunity to apologies for the inconvenience caused through receiving the fine, and look forward to hearing from you in due course. Kind Regards Hotel Management

Dear “Hotel Management”, You really should take heed of what your guests are saying to you, you know. It is all very well telling people about the number of parking signs at your hotel but everyone knows that it is ‘quality’ and not ‘quantity’ that truly counts. Let me tell you a story – don’t worry, it’s not a (very) long one. One Monday afternoon back in April at about 1600 hours, after a particularly long and tiring day, I was driving on the M40 towards London when I realised that my mind was drifting, my head was nodding and ... the rear end of a lorry was inches from my bumper ... when I decided that enough was enough and I should stop at the earliest opportunity. So I chose junction four of the M40 and yes, you guessed it, ended up in your car park. Now, of course I saw the various signs saying that it was private land but when I drove into the car park and saw that it was virtually empty, I thought that no one could possibly begrudge a weary traveller the opportunity to lay his head for a time. After all, I reasoned (logically and sensibly), I was bothering no one, inconveniencing nobody and if any parking attendant happened to be doing his/her rounds, it really wouldn’t matter as I would be in the vehicle the whole time and a little tap on the window would certainly be sufficient. But no. Despite all the signs, there is not A SINGLE ONE that tells you CLEARLY that an ANPR system is in use at the location. The small camera symbols in the bottom right of the parking signs (which, incidentally, are placed where someone who parks up in the middle of a row and does not exit his vehicle CANNOT SEE) are a joke and are completely contrary to the BPA guidelines which state: “21.1) You may use ANPR camera technology to manage, control and enforce parking in private car parks, as long as you do this in a reasonable, consistent and transparent manner. Your signs at the car park must tell drivers that you are using this technology and what you will use the data captured by ANPR cameras for.” Reasonable ? TRANSPARENT ? I think not. Have you ever been anywhere ANPR controlled that does not shout the fact from the rooftops with large, clear signs proclaiming such ? No, neither have I. As an aside, perhaps you should ask yourself why the cameras are positioned so high off the ground. Let me guess: to deter vandals, right ? Wake up, please. My friend was caught out - on a Sunday - very shortly after I was but, in keeping with 99.5% of victims, I am sure, decided to pay up straight away and be done with it. Well, I refuse to be a willing participant in their deeply dubious moneymaking scheme. I have now received the first round of court papers. Parking Eye (no wonder their profits and shares are sky high at the moment) know very well that their system is 'borderline' and I have no doubt that "Their Worships" will uphold their case because it is far easier to do so but I know - and so do you - that my objections are just and well founded. I will certainly be attending court with all possible ammunition at my disposal. If you really cared about your customers and not about making money for unscrupulous private parking contractors you would INSIST that the ANPR system is better signed so that FAIR and DECENT people like me do not get caught out. £100 for needing to sleep and harming no one ? I think not. If I had known I would be dealing with a machine and not a parking warden (which I would have done had their signage been adequate), I would, of course, have moved elsewhere. It is a disgrace and I believe you have at the very least a moral obligation to rectify the status quo. Go on, Holiday Inn Management, I dare you: make a stand against these people - after all, YOU are the customer and you wouldn't want to be taken for a ride now, would you ...?

I would like to agree that the signage needs to be clear that ANPR is in action. Having been a frequent visitor to this hotel on business I have had many embarrassing situations with clients who had not seen this sign either, while parked up in their car until the meeting commenced. The only time this had been observed is after entering the Hotel. I agree with Paolo, there needs to be an appropriate signage unless the agenda of the “Parking Eye” is to make money and deter customers to the Holiday Inn!!
