Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Italy - Parking Time Displays

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
A problem I seem to have with Italy is the mystery surrounding parking regulations. The cost of a lift pass is steep enough without discovering that you've incurred a parking fine whilst in a lift car park area too. Proper car parks with barriers aren't a problem, it's pay and display or possibly just 'display' where you need a cardboard indicator that sits inside the windscreen showing the time you parked. The cars I've recently hired in Italy didn't have them, so where do you get them from? Failing to display one of these seems to have cost me 85 euros. Ouch!

Hire car or your own UK registered vehicle? If the later I wouldn't think you'll get a ticket in the post.

The last few cars we've had in Italy (and Switzerland too, in fact) have all had one of them already, either on the windscreen or in the glove box / seat pocket. Perhaps you've been unlucky (well, definitely unlucky to get the fine anyway!).

After a bit of hunting around I bought one in Switzerland in a minimarket, other places would be fuel stations.

Many thanks for the suggestions. Rather than try to track one down abroad I've found that you can find them on Amazon if you search for parking disc. Must add them to my packing list.

@dw832, we found ourselves quite a bit parking in places in Italy in March where we needed to display arrival time. After a bit of grovelling in the glove box we found one that we had acquired last year in Les Gets when they introduced similar parking schemes. I think it is a great idea and wish we could have the same here in Chichester.
