“Clamper warning Marlborough Street [Dublin] – small 24 hr clearway signs gone less than 2 weeks ago. Note the signpost behind 2nd car (you can’t see the sign as it’s pointed away from car) Parking bay markings still in place on ground and machine still takes money (which I paid) with no mention of clearway. And I still got clamped (see 1st car). Bit of a racket !!!!!”




It’s always the last resort.

“I was clamped for being parked “in 3 spaces” in the apartment block where I live. Maybe I am biased so I was looking for your readers opinions. I am basically on the white lines, but my spot is against the wall so I have to come out a bit to fit. And as long as I have lived there all 5 spots around me have been empty. I think it just highlights the issues of private bullshit clamping.To be fair they are going to deal with it quickly…. ‘We will endeavour to respond to you within 28 working days once a full review of your case has been completed, and a decision has been made’.”
