Amazed by let­ter writer’s in­dig­na­tion

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

I READ with in­ter­est the let­ter in the Tele from Nosey parker.

We live close to the city cen­tre and park our car in an un­re­stricted street nearby be­cause we have no al­ter­na­tive.

I am amazed at the self right­eous in­dig­na­tion in Nosey parker’s let­ter.

This at­ti­tude is one which seems to be preva­lent in the minds of those driv­ers who work in the city cen­tre and be­lieve that, be­cause they are not break­ing the law, it is OK to park their ve­hi­cle for their whole work­ing day in our lo­cal­ity, only re­turn­ing at their con­ve­nience.

The out­come is that lo­cal res­i­dents have dif­fi­culty find­ing a park­ing space on their re­turn if they have to use their car for nec­es­sary jour­neys.

In our case, we are both el­derly and some­what in­firm.

What mat­ters to Nosey parker is the sav­ing of park­ing costs, not the in­con­ve­nience that is caused to res­i­dents like us!

Pre­sum­ably Nosey parker also baulks at the cost of us­ing pub­lic trans­port — sup­pressed fury in­deed.
