It has come to light that the parking meters in the ‘existing’ CPZ are playing funny tricks on visitors who try to buy a parking ticket for the two hours 12:00 – 14:00. Nominally @ £3 per hour = £6.
Ah but there’s a trick:
You can either ….
Pay £6 at mid-day and only get a printed ticket showing an hours’ worth of parking.Requiring another visit and another £3 to avoid a ticket.
Or you can …
Pay £3 at mid-day and get an hour of parking requiring a return visit an hour later to pay a further £3 for the next hour.
Crazy nonsense. The sort of thing you’d expect in a third-world country … or Lambeth, of course.
Truly, we are ruled by idiots and scoundrels.
