Windsor car parks: we don’t have £10 in coins

We had a lovely day in Windsor today. But it started on a rocky note: a car park (Victoria Street multi-storey car park, Windsor) that demands you pay in coins. That’s fine if the cost is 50p. But not when the charge is £10.

Windsor & Maidenhead council, let me introduce you to the 21st century. We now have credit and debit cards, mobile phones and PayPal. You could make life a lot easier by letting people pay by card and mobile. It would mean that we didn’t have to go back to the car park to top up the payment. You’d make even more money. You’d have to empty the machines less often. Everyone will win. Welcome to the 21st century.
