Dear Sir,

I simply cannot believe what I read in the newspaper! For a poor Aycliffe citizen to be subjected to a fine, just because they missed no less than seven signs in a public parking space, and one in the café, is beyond belief – and for Costa, a privately owned business with no ties to the parking spaces at all, to say they weren’t responsible?

I simply cannot believe it – this blessed soul should take the fight all the way to jail, because then at least our roads will be a little bit safer – if you can’t read a road sign and don’t know who runs the parking spaces you use, should you really be driving? So now I ask, what is happening to this country? Do we want to live in a town which accommodates this dangerous behaviour? Maybe we need more signs.
