Noticed this so thought I'd post it as its a subject that raises its head on here on a regular basis.
Not sure if the laws on this are different in Scotland however... But if not, then this could help someone.

New law coming out in Scotland. Basically you will now have to say who was driving

Tesco in town are down to 2 hours now. Didn't seem to make any difference. I was in a couple if weekends ago and ended up having to go elsewhere as I couldn't get parked. Not sure how often it's like that but it was when they have the remembrance thing down at the Glen so that may have added to the problem. Couldn't get parked at the Glen Bridge either.

Dunfermline really needs more Council run parking.

Thanks. That just quotes a source saying it's being considered, not the law change is imminent.

Imagine getting a fine for filling up and getting a car wash.

It says considered as it's in a Bill that was in the process of passing through the Scottish Parliament when the article was published in March.

"The keeper liability clause in the new Transport (Scotland) Bill would close what many see as a ‘legal loophole’ in relation to private parking fines."

The Bill has now passed:
