'I suggest something about the scandalous failure of car parking machines to give change, and the rise of the statement 'overpayment is accepted'..the pricing is set to make it more difficult, so it's 90p for half an hour, or £1.80 for an hour.
..I would rather it actually cost a pound than have to scrabble around for a minimum of 3 coins to pay the 90p..How much 'overpayment' is made by the great British public to money grabbing local authorities, car park companies etc. per year?'
