A parking maths problem.
« on: January 08, 2019, 01:39:51 PM »
Note the price for parking Vans -Minibuses - Commercial, and how you can't pay that exact amount.

Conveniently, the machines don't give change.

You’re like an STD: No one wants you, everybody hates you, and you’re a reminder of the devastating consequences of not using protection during sex.


Amount I have so far denied the BBC - £1308

Really sorry but I don't see how one cannot pay £6? Surely you 6 pound coins would take care of that...
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do say will be misquoted, and then used against you.

It doesn't issue £6 tickets.

If you overpay one of the fixed amounts, it only issues the nearest ticket value, below what you've put in.

So, for instance, if you put in £2, it will issue you a 2 hour ticket.

So you didn't show the bigger picture Bob, the money machine....
Clearly, Extra wide parking is going to be a problem at that car park.
Lets be clear on this BBC, I do not condone breaking the law.... Subscription is your future...... My Firewalls block all things BBC...So do you feel lucky - Goon....

I thought it was implicit, with the statement "Conveniently, the machines don't give change."

Buy 5x £1.20 tickets =£6.00. Its a private car park anyway, hence enforcement is largely toothless. If they are stupid enough to vexatiously take you to court for non-complaince with their "rules", you will be able to show that you paid the correct amount in the only way possible. Would be quite entertaining.
To Aug '18. Money spent on better things: £1598.00
