Parking sharks at Llandough

First published in Letters

ARRIVED at Llandough in cloudburst. Terrible visibility. Much confused by new system but after much toing and froing, discovered several empty parking spaces. With much relief, parked opposite a sign in a language which neither I nor most of my acquaintances could understand. Struggled through the deluge to the hospital as fast as my 80-year-old legs would go.

Exited half an hour later in brilliant sunshine to find that I had inadvertently parked in a staff parking lot... Oh dear! But there were the same vacant spaces there so no one had been inconvenienced.

A few days later arrived a letter from ParkingEye headed in block letters ‘£70 fine’, above two nice pictures of our old, much battered Clio parked in the wrong place.

My appeal was refused as ParkingEye considers its signage adequate. I disagree but dutifully paid my £40 fine.

Thanks to messrs Wallis and Horrobins letters on similar subjects in your February 27 edition. I am encourages to add these views in the hope our joint efforts might help to mitigate the perennial nightmare of parking at Llandough and be a warning to our neighbours about those lurking sharks which show no mercy.
