A UK man’s McDonald’s meal became the most expensive he had ever had after he was fined £100 (Rs 10,000) by a private parking company for taking too long to eat in the car park.
Shapour Meftah received two penalty notices from a private car parking company at his home for his visit to the restaurant at New Market Road in Cambridge on January 4 and 6 respectively. His brother too has received the penalty tickets.
"It was parking from hell - the most expensive McDonald's I've ever had", Meftah told local news outlets. He was meeting his brother at the fast food chain and spent eating for over 90 minutes – the maximum parking time allotted by the parking company.
If he doesn't pay the fine within a week then the fine will go up to £100 each.
