Council chiefs have warned motorists they should pay to park when traffic wardens in Southampton strike for seven days next week.At last, a strike that the whole country can get behind!
They said there will be no parking enforcement or parking meter repairs as a result of the industrial action.Maybe you’d like to put on a uniform and help out, Royston..?
But council leader Royston Smith said last night that drivers should continue to feed the city’s meters, which collected nearly £7m last year.
“We charge for parking. We expect people to pay for it,” he said, adding that the council was looking into ways to continue enforcement if legally possible.
