Customer Fined INR 10,000 For Eating Slowly: "Most Expensive McDonald's I've Ever Had"

Why is McDonald's so well-liked? What more could a person want than tasty burgers at affordable prices? However, for a client in Cambridge, a lunch at McDonald's turned out to be more expensive than eating at a 5-star establishment while being otherwise reasonable.

For the whole tale, continue reading.

Shapour Meftah stopped by the McDonald's on Cambridge's Newmarket Road and parked his automobile in the spot designated for the fast-food establishment. He enjoyed a lovely supper there with his brother after work before returning home. Everything was well until he got fines from UK Parking Control, a private parking business, for leaving his vehicle parked at McDonald's for an excessive amount of time.


"It was parking from hell - the most costly McDonald's I've ever had," Shapour Meftah told CambridgeshireLive. The fixed penalty notifications that the firm issued for his two trips to the McDonald's on Newmarket Road on two different days—January 4 and January 6, 2023—came to almost INR 10K. He received a fee from the parking firm for exceeding the 90-minute limit set for McDonald's customers at the parking place.

"McDonald's does not have a sign inside stating that you have 90 minutes to sit down, eat, and go. You don't want to hurry through your supper, and we placed a large order "Meftah erupted in rage.
