Sign of the week -
Euro Car Parks Tesco epic fail.
"It's er, free for 30 minutes as long as you pay us £70 after 20 minutes."
The Prankster has been in contact with Euro Car Parks (ECP) who have clarified that this is not one of their authorised signs. Tesco have been producing their own signs with ECP branded details, but which are not authorised in any way by ECP. Tesco have been asked to stop this practice and agreed as far back as 2012, but there are still a few lingering sites where rogue signs remain. The store in question has now been asked to remove the sign, and ECP will be visiting the site this week for a visual inspection.
Tesco still is a client of ECP, so the signage at many stores is legitimate. This should therefore not lead to the assumption that all ECP signs at Tesco car parks are not authorised.
