This week, we’re looking at the issue of private firms issuing fines for infringements in supermarket car parks.

Do you think it’s right that such firms should be able to levy fines of up to £115? (If you know of one higher, let us know)

Is it acceptable for the DVLA to supply these firms with your details?

Have you been ‘stung’ with a hefty fine yourself?

Maybe you think it’s a good thing that firms are stopping people abusing parking regulations?
