Whilst on the subject of cars, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown makes a valid point “Techy Parking Driving Us Away” (Mirror 24 08 22)
Whilst I champion advances in technology I am also passionate about righting wrongs. It is clearly wrong if – as Yasmin and many others suggest – the requirement to use apps to pay for parking is making parking “stressful .. and at times impossible” . It is essential that technology is our servant not our master. As always, widespread adoption of new technology is achieved by flattening the learning curve. Technology could and should make our lives easier, not harder. Until that is the case, Councils and private car park companies must keep the traditional payment methods as an alternative.
