Parking signs were hidden

Sir,

With regards to Mrs Williams’ letter (Advertiser December 22) I also parked on the Gregory Street car park.

The signs were very much strategically placed, free parking, easy to see and all other wording hidden behind the machine and in very small print.

I would agree with Mrs Williams, it was blatant entrapment. I paid my parking ticket.

On my way out I spoke with a car park attendant, I explained the situation telling her the public would get caught out.

What a nasty trick to obtain financial gain from Joe Public.

I noticed on December 28 that the signs were moved.

The council should return all of the car park fees within the dates that the signs were hidden and try harder not to mislead the public.
