Signage is inadequate

Nothing offends the dignity, or spoils the day out quite like a parking ticket.

I use the excellent discount scratch cards but have recently become the victim of Parkmaster... until my successful appeal.

I do wish the council would put the name of the car park and zone number on the sign at the car park entrance. People with scratch cards do not go to the pay machine to read the small print - it should be on the scratch card. If the entrance sign does not tell you where you are or what zone you are in, chances are, you could be on to a loser.

Believe it or not, some strangers actually come for a day out in Chesterfield and they, in particular, should be given a welcome that starts in the car park – and I don’t mean a Parkmaster welcome.
