Letter: Parking power

Click to follow
Sir: On the Continent, should you reach the traffic warden while he is writing your parking ticket it will be destroyed as long as you move on. In Germany, if the parking meter is out of order one has the right to park there until the meter resumes working. In this country, there seems to be no human or social angle in the approach of traffic wardens and their employers.

Isn't enough money bled from car owners to allow a little space for a more human approach? Could we not learn from our European partners?
