When you drive into a public parking area in a shopping centre you will be regarded as having agreed to the terms that are usually posted at the entrance. The terms are often printed on the ticket or referred to on the ticket. These sorts of cases are actually referred to as “ticket cases.”» —“website terms and conditions: whether you read them or not” by Paul Jacobson Paul Jacobson (Johannesburg, South Africa) Apr. 4, 2008.
