One question I have on this “does the car parking attendant have the authority to issue a parking ticket that stands up in court” as I thought only traffic wardens and police had that authority.
This thread also reminds of a sign in the car park at The Quiraing on Isle of Skye which stated “no vehicles that have been manufactured or adapted for sleeping are allowed to use this car park between 10pm and 8am..... Wonder if a smart arsed Lawyer could get you off for discrimination - as does sleeping in a car with a sleeping bag mean the car has been adapted for sleeping - as a sleeping bag does not come as standard equipment with a car!

Yeah I kinda get your point, But Most car parks, in fact Most land in general is owned by someone, & if it’s their rules, Then it’s Their rules you must agree to if you want to use their land or Facilities. So a member of staff paid to Police the Parameters of use is reasonable in law I would suggest. (Obviously Don’t Know as not legally trained)
As far as the sleeping bag comment goes, I suppose that it could be classed as an item of Safety to have aboard a vehicle, much the same as Shovel, First aid kits & Fire extinguishers that are largely NOT supplied in the vehicle but a sensible addition in case of use. Especially in Scotland 👍😊

I suppose the definitive answer to the original question is....leave the sleepyheads behind, or make them stay up to make tea. BUT would snoozing in a seat, fully dressed, be not allowed....seen lots of cars with an occupant dozing in a seat.

Most of us try to avoid that type of carpark but each to their own🤭
Now then, I was thinking of when we go for a walk and leave my aged mum having a snooze...better class of carpark and occupant obviously! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:
