Tesco has introduced new technology to ensure only customers use its free parking.

Starting at its Truro store, Tesco installed 10 touchscreens in its car park. Cameras log the registration of every vehicle that enters. After a shop, customers are given a voucher. They enter their reg and scan the voucher to validate their parking. The terminals fine anyone who takes more than two hours or spends less than £3 in Tesco. Anyone who does not scan a voucher will be written to by the DVLA and fined after a number of offences.

Metric, the company behind the screens, said Tesco has since also installed 13 terminals at its Slough store and has ordered terminals for a further two stores.
