How to use
To use visitors' parking permits scratch out the
- hours and minutes to the next nearest five minutes
- day, date, month and year.
You must scratch out six boxes on each permit.
If your visitor is staying for longer than 90 minutes complete the same six boxes on each permit. So, if they arrive at 9am and are staying for three hours, scratch out 9am on two permits. You only need one permit in a PPA as the controls only last 90 minutes.
The details on each permit must be clearly visible from outside the vehicle or the vehicle may receive a parking ticket.
