I got clamped for just leaving the car park at maplins once with a £70 release fee all they do is find ways of squeasing every last penny out of us! s! they should go to hell! I'd so love to run over a traffic warden... they'd probably still then try and give me a ticket for driving on the foot path

I don't approve of clamping on public roads. The whole point of parking restrictions is to prevent people from causing an obstruction. All a wheel clamp does is force the owner of the car to continue to obstruct the road for even longer. If a car is actually in the way, then they should tow it. If it isn't, then why have the parking restriction in the first place?

On private land, clamping is often just a licence to print money. But sometimes it is the last resort for the land owner who finds their parking facilities regularly abused. Our local branch of HSBC is a prime example. It's impossible to park in their car park, because it's chock full of shoppers who are too tight to pay 50p for two hours Pay & Display in the council ones. I've had to park elsewhere a number of times, got to the bank and been the only one in there, yet the car park was still full. I honestly wish my branch would start clamping.
