Yeah me neither but as was mentioned on the other thread MOE & DCC Parking
that I spotted after starting this one there are bound to be queues as people try to get their tickets and then realise that they are not close enough to the machine to lean out the window etc etc.

I can't abide MOE at the weekend, I try to avoid malls at all busy times in all honesty. The parking debacle will only make the weekends far worse, as the previous poster has suggested.
