Free parking is a bizarre anomaly in today’s world

At last, a flash of realism and good, down-to-earth common sense from an intelligent and thoughtful politician.

John Gollop’s proposed amendment to the paid parking issue, suggesting a 50 pence her hour charge for all parking spaces throughout Guernsey, shows he is determined to solve the traffic problem in the quickest, most cost-effective way.

The only fair and equitable system is a genuine user-pays system, i.e. the more you park, the more you pay. What is wrong with that?

Free parking is a bizarre anomaly in today’s world. It is time Guernsey dispensed with it and introduced realistic parking charges that reflect the true cost of the land use.
