MP introduces ten-minute rule Bill on parking signs

[17 Sept 2012] The House of Commons will hear about the need for better, clearer signs in car parks when Nick Smith, MP for Blaenau Gwent, introduces a ten-minute rule Bill on Tuesday 18 September. 

His topic will be:


That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision relating to signage and ticketing technology for parking charges used in publicly-available car parks; and for connected purposes.’

Smith appeared on Radio 4's 'You and Yours' programme today, about 42 minutes into the show:

He said private-company members of the British Parking Association were to be given three years to make changes to their signs after its new code of practice requiring improvements comes into force in October. If this is true, then once again the BPA’s claims to be the motorist’s friend have been shown up for the hypocrisy they are.  [cont]
