Parking meter cost

SIR - The Devon County Council have announced putting parking meters all over Devon - in order to save money. It costs a lot of money to advertise and bring in these meters.

Then of course there is the cost of installing them, with electricity supply. They have to be serviced and emptied and repaired after vandalism. I reckon it will be five years before they break even. All this in order to save money. This is from a Council who claim to be cost conscious.
