Are awkward parking fees simply intended to encourage us all to pay by card instead of coins?
Sir, Linda Zeff (letter, May 2) wonders if awkward parking fees are to encourage us to pay by card instead of coins. Last week in Wembley I tried to pay for my parking by phone. I inadvertently texted my location and duration to the wrong recipient and had a text confirmation stating that I had been charged $720.25. When I phoned up to query this, I was told I had paid for several weeks’ parking at an airport in Canada. Luckily, they promised me a refund.
