New pound coins.

New pound coins.

Postby TenaciousB » Sat May 27, 2017 3:28 pm

Many machines do not take the new one pound coin. For example, parking meters. If someone has put a one pound coin in and it is spat out again, have they deemed to have attempted to pay? Effectively the Council have refused their money, even though it is legal tender, as the money has been returned. So if someone filmed themselves attempting to pay, then got a ticket, could they appeal on the basis that they attempted to pay and use the footage as evidence?

Parking machines have never accepted all legal tender. I doubt they have to.
