Parking wardens refused to go to work this weekend because the panic buttons on their radios stopped working.And why was that so important?
They said problems with their radio sets put their health and safety at risk because they could not raise the alarm if they were assaulted.I suppose they could always try doing their job in a manner that doesn’t make people want to assault them? No?
The implications of this haven’t escaped notice, either. From the comments:
Rostrum, Hove says...Quite!
So.. No traffic wardens on Saturday and most of Sunday and no Parking Tickets handed out..
Were there any problems with the Traffic-flow? No
Were there any incidents of emergency vehicles not able to get to where they were needed? No
So the two main reasons for the whole scheme were unaffected.
This that the parking policies of our great city are all about raking in cash and NOT about traffic-flow, access and safety which is what the relevant laws are all about.
