Bank Holiday Carmageddon at ASDA

ASDA recently cancelled their contract with Smart Parking to manage their car parks. The notice period appears to have come to an end - ASDA Bedminster has had the cameras and signs removed**.

As yet, no new operator has been installed. A Prankster operative sent in pictures today of the ensuing carmageddon over the bank holiday weekend.

No doubt Patrick Troy will now be on the phone and the Prankster will have to eat his hat. The photograph conclusively shows that without signage and ANPR to protect free city centre car parks, chaos almost instantly ensues.

Oh wait...

Happy Parking

The Parking Prankster

**except the signs they hid so well they couldn't find them themselves.


  1. Let's hope this is the beginning of the end for supermarket parking PMC's. Next in-line, hospitals perhaps?
    I wonder on what gives with Morrison's car parks. Some have a PMC on them and others don't.

  2. I have been informed that ASDA store in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, has just had "Parking Eye" signage installed. Bad news if this is true. also Athena have been given the old heave ho from my local Lidl!
    Signs removed, cameras taken down and touchpads removed from checkouts! Wonder if Parking Eye signs will start to pop up.

  3. Parking Eye in Shipley now

  4. I hope that as soon as Parking Eye are installed the customers leave. I myself will not patronise any business which uses Parking Eye as a matter of principle. If they have Parking Eye I will go elsewhere, simple.
