Road pricing

Are higher car parking charges a cheap yet effective method of reducing road congestion in city centres?

If the motorists of Cardiff are truly affronted by these price increases they already have the answer.

Boycott NCP facilities in Cardiff.

It will never happen of course, as NCP management and the local Authority well know.

The overwhelming response to a call for a boycott would no doubt be; "Someone else, like the Government, should do something about it. After all thats why we elected them and anyway my personal convenience matters more!"

Alfie, maybe the Welsh Assembly should tax car-parking charges.

I can't help thinking that this sounds like some kind of protection racket. If the extra revenue was being 'invested' by the Council rather than flowing into company coffers, no one would be raising this as a concern!
