Cheaper to park ILLEGALLY than pay for Legal parking

Hi there

From a City which has one of the most prestigious universities in the world and probably one of the highest concentration of Nobel prize winners.

Shows that they aren't all that good on Basic Arithmetic though. !!!!

Seems to be quite a lot of Cities which offer a discount if fines are paid quickly .... Parking fines has already been increased here In Northern Ireland last year from £60 to £90

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7600

parking fees are extortion.
i dont drive but if i did and was going into town i would do the same as i do now.
i walk into town do my shopping ,usually get food shopping and heavy stuff last from the supermarket then get a taxi home.
the taxi fare being almost cheaper than a parking space for 2 hours. including tip
and the taxi driver carries some of the bags in for me.

Charging for car parking was the first nail in the high streets coffin, Amazon was the final one.

Being a pensioner has it's advantages in some ways, I don't pay bus fare and any shopping I do is delivered to my door.

I have a bus pass, which gives me discounted travel anywhere in MK until the day before I'm 19

I only pay 45p, and it's usually £2.10
