RHA win extra free parking time for drivers at MFG site

The RHA has won longer free parking for HGV drivers at a Motor Fuel Group (MFG) site in Exeter, enabling them to take their rest period without having to pay.

As a result of our engagement, MFG has agreed to extend its free parking from 30 minutes to 1 hour at its A38 Haldon Hill site.
Paying for parking

It follows concerns raised by members at our Midlands and Western Regional Council – a critical tool for members to discuss issues in their area.

Members highlighted that some sites were charging £1 after 30 minutes – despite the mandatory 45-minute rest period being in place for drivers.

We called for a 1 hour free parking as a minimum – and MFG responded to our call, stating it valued the custom and opinion of our members, and didn’t want to prevent them from being able to take required breaks.

The move will come into place on 7 June 2022.

We will continue to engage with service station operators to deliver for members and drivers.
