The co-siting of
parking ticket machines and bus stops
is not as uncommon as one might think, here’s another one, this time in New Road, Abbey Wood.
In these newly introduced shared parking spaces, a residents’ permit holder may park where he likes. What happens if he parks over the poorly painted line that marks the end of the Pay & Display area? He is presumably in the clear but the Pay & Display customer who finds a space on the far side of him will be unaware of his mistake. Entrapment seems to be what parking is all about.
