As I watched several cars turn away from the car park I wondered if parking charges will soon increase to make up for loss of income. Then I realised that this new system must be saving money somehow otherwise it wouldn’t’ have been introduced. The Pay & Display machines did break a lot so money will be saved in not having to fix them I suppose.
I’m also worried about the assumption that everyone has a mobile phone, and what about the people who have debit cards but only use them to take cash out of the hole in the wall.
I don’t know if the car park on Thomas Lane has changed over but I hope not for those who don’t or won’t have a mobile phone.
