Parking meters are to be scrapped in Central London as parking fees are now so high that Westminster City Council believe it is unrealistic for drivers to carry so much change around. In some areas it can cost up to four quid an hour!
Instead, motorists will use credit or debit cards to pay and they will be able to use mobile phones to set up an account with with their card and car registration details. Drivers will be able to text in the bay number and the amount of time for which they wish to pay, even getting a reminder when their time is running out and allowing them to pay for additional time.
When will it ever stop?
