Detest places that charge for parking. Especially shopping centres.

'Free' parking isn't really free. It just means that the costs of providing parking are shared by all customers, including those who walk or cycle or taking the bus. If you want storage space for your private property, it's not unreasonable that you pay for the cost of this.

Generally agree but sometimes not charging encourages people parking for work all day or even jumping PT to the city

They don't. They could offer free parking for a couple of hours to stop people parking all day or free parking when you make a purchase.

Dundrum's parking always annoys me. 1 hour €2, then 2 hours free, then extortion to prevent commuter parking.

Why not 2 hours free, then kick in charges (live Pavilions owned by the same people)?

Profit. That's why. And power to them when people will pay it.

Not as ridiculous as 4 Euro an hour.



I won't even start on how ridiculous 5 Euro an hour is.

Now, 6 Euro an hour, if it wasn't for 7 Euro an hour, that'd be the worst.

..Until you mention 8 Euro an hour.

Imagine up the north and it being sterling. Be cheaper to parachute in and then batman style sky hook to get you out. Tiz mad
