LETTER: Parents get privileged parking positions


May I suggest a surefire opportunity for anyone looking to set up their own business in Chesterfield?

If you have kids why not hire them out on a hourly or daily basis (subject to CRB checks of course) to older residents who wish to go shopping in town, to ensure they get a privileged parking position.

Close to the shop/supermarket doors with little chance of getting wet or cold. Ample room to throw the car doors open. Less chance of getting your paintwork ‘trollied.’

Alternatively, just hire out the empty child seats. No one will challenge your customers. A great many people who claim these parking bays actually have no child on board.
