FlashPark announces response to Welsh parking ticket complaint

FlashPark has reacted swiftly to language problems concerning a parking ticket issued in the English language in Wales.

London, UK, January 20, 2012 -- Private parking enforcement agency FlashPark has reacted swiftly to language problems concerning a parking ticket issued in the English language in Wales.

Noel Jones, 54, and his daughter Bethan, 26, were handed the ticket after using the car park at Penrhyndeudraeth village Memorial Hall. The pair, whose first language is Welsh, stated they feel it is unfair that their ticket - along with the signs around the car park - are displayed in English and have refused to pay until they receive acknowledgement of the parking transgression in their native Welsh.

Many of the signs in the area surrounding the hall are provided in both Welsh and English. But according to reports from the Memorial Hall committee, there had previously been Welsh signs in place in the car park but they had been vandalised.

FlashPark is in the process of investigating the legalities of language when it comes to parking notices. But as a message of fair play, Costas Constantino, a spokesman for FlashPark, confirmed that the group will be issuing a translation of the ticket in Welsh to be posted to the pair as soon as possible.

Mr Constantino stated: “This will be a translation to Welsh of the parking ticket originally sent received, We are happy to do the same for other motorists that face the same situation. At the end of the translation we will include some of the top tips on how to save money when motoring.

“FlashPark will always act in good faith in any dispute which will reflects the rights of the landowner and motorist.”
