More bad news

More bad news today with the announcement that Cash Handling Systems – the organisation who makes, installs and manages parking meters around the country – which had only recently gone into liquidation, has now been part-purchased by an Australian company, and expects therefore to continue putting its hand into the pockets of the country’s motorists for some years to come.  (News here.)

Bugger.

  1. Question: would parking meters (and by extension, the existence of this company) be acceptable if the roads were privately owned?
