Have you tried to get back to a parking fee, because you have stopped on a place in two minutes?
So now you have good reason to be unhappy with the parking fee.
In a new judgment strikes the Eastern high Court established that a halt is not the same as a parking - either on the public highway or on a private car park.
It writes the FDM in a press release, after a FDM-member got a p-charge in order to stop his car in two minutes on a private car park. But the parking fee was not justified.
Back in July 2016, stopped the FDM's member in his car in a parking lot to run a short errand at his bank. But even though she was gone just a few minutes, reached the p-guard anyway to put a p-charge under vinduesviskeren, since the p-dial was not set correctly, as the rules required. But it is not.
- That is, according to the highway code, first talking about a parking, if the car lasts longer than three minutes, otherwise it is a stopping. We think that this also applies to private parking if not otherwise indicated in the sign, and we are pleased that the high court shares our interpretation of it, says Abid Khan, who is a lawyer in the FDM, and which have led the case in court on behalf of FDMs member.

the ruling means that, unless stated otherwise by signs, p-guards thus observe and be able to demonstrate that a car stops for more than three minutes before they must give a p-charge. It could be p-company is not in the specific case.
- By parking on the private area you accept the terms and conditions stated by the signs here. But if there is something that you must not stop, we do not believe that, subsequently, can provide a p-charge for it, says Abid Khan.
- Drivers learn in their driving lessons, that after the road traffic law the first is a parking for three minutes. We are especially pleased that the high court by its judgment affirm, that drivers, which stops at the private field, not placed in a worse position than by stopping at the public area. It makes it easier for the drivers to not use different concepts. It also means that it will be possible to run small errands, and it will not be something that costs p-the companies money. We can only be happy with, he says.
FDM recommend that you always inform themselves about the applicable p-rules in order to avoid a parking fee.
