The Prankster understands this is because they have no advertising consent. It is a criminal offence to display signs without the correct advertising consent.

ASDA use ParkingEye to mismanage their car parks. The Prankster has been in touch with a ParkingEye employee who unofficially told him that ParkingEye's policy is to save money by not bothering to apply for advertising consent for their signage. They only apply if they get rumbled and the council investigates. Although this employee does not officially speak for ParkingEye, the evidence up and down the country would suggest this is true.
