Charge outside a supermarket parking lot 100 yuan


A wheel clamping company is ripping off parents collecting their children from school by charging them $100 for parking outside a supermarket string embroidery, Labour's Mt Roskill MP Phil Goff says.

He says a supermarket car park opposite Mt Roskill Primary School is a popular point used by parents of three schools wanting a safe place to pick up their children.

"I understand the concern of retailers who want the car park available for their customers," he said on Thursday.

"But the wheel clamping company is using enforcement as a money-making racket, case for samsung galaxy with motorists copping hefty charges for parking there for less than two minutes."

Mr Goff says the company takes photos of cars using the car park and follows up with a bill for $100.

If that's not paid within two weeks administration fees are charged, adding hundreds of dollars to the original bill, and debt collectors may be called in.

"A number of parents with English as a second language have received bills of up to $500 for being in the car park for minutes without realising they were doing anything wrong," Mr Goff said.

"People should know that advice from the Automobile Association and Consumer Affairs is that the wheel clamping company has no statutory authority to fine people nu skin product."

Mr Goff has called a meeting of local school principals, board representatives and Auckland Transport to try to find a solution.
