Hospital parking – a real scam

Leave a comment

When we’ve had to park in a hospital parking area, this Furlong has noticed a real scam in operation.

Recently Mr Furlong paid for two hours at our local hospital.

The charge was £2:15

Not £2:10

Not £2:20

But £2:15.

An hour was £1:25

Not £1:20

Not £1:30

But £1:25

Do Hospital Administrators think we are STUPID? We can see their scam.

Plenty of us put in extra coins in desperation, to get our tickets. But do we get change from all the millions of times we put in coins to the value of £2:20 – or even £2:50 for two hours, or £1:30 or £1:40 for an hour? No, no change. The meter simply gobbles up our extra coins.

So hospitals are coining it. Its done on purpose I’m sure. They think they’re clever. But in fact it’s devious abuse.

They know bloody well that no one ever has any 5p’s in their wallets!
