Honesty is just the ticket on Lizard as parking machines plan rejected

Falmouth Packet: Honesty is just the ticket on Lizard as parking machines plan rejected Honesty is just the ticket on Lizard as parking machines plan rejected

The honesty of motorists in St Keverne and Coverack will continue to be relied upon after it was decided not to install ticket machines in the villages’ car parks.

It had been suggested that pay and display machines could be placed in the car parks, like ones that already exist in Grade Ruan.

St Keverne Parish Council clerk Grace Hatton told members that the Grade Ruan had replaced its machines for £3,000.

St Keverne’s councillors, however, felt this was money that could be spent elsewhere.

Chairman Roger Combe also pointed out: “The problem is if we have a machine there we still have to empty it.”

Councillor Michael Anselmi agreed: “There’s nothing like a slot in a box and a bit of honesty.”

It was decided to maintain the status quo and keep the honesty boxes in situ.

Cornwall Council should in my view replace the honesty box with a new one in Shrubberies Hill Car-park Porthleven, it is broken, has no sign marking it as an honesty box and is vulnerable to thieves, a few days ago it was completely full of water.

How do you know it is vulnerable to thieves, have you taken something out of it GZM? how do you know it was full of water?

No I have not taken anything out of it and I object to your question, I could see the water in it when I put a pound in it and it dropped through the water. The box was filled with water up to the slot.

Ken you really are priceless with your cynicism, twice Gill has challenged people that were taking money out of the box, that is how she knows it is vulnerable to thieves.
