EDITOR — I write this letter with disappointment following the number of vehicles that I see clamped within the Harare Central Business District.
I am aware that the council is on a drive to make money but they also have to consider that vehicle owners would love to pay but most of the times do not have the money or the parking attendant is not visible or on sight.
These days I have noticed that on most streets, as soon as one parks, the parking attendants hardly come forward and ask for parking fees but just ignore you and continue chatting.
The poor motorist has to approach or call them to come get the parking fee.
However, on some streets it is like they will be hiding so that you leave your vehicle without paying and you find it clamped.
The parking attendants should do their jobs diligently and stop playing around with other people’s hard-earned money.
I’m also aware that most of these parking attendants have targets that they have to meet but if they were doing their work diligently most people would willingly pay their parking fees.
Our city fathers should have the people’s interests at heart and stop thinking about money all the time.
If these people cannot man the parking bays properly, the city fathers should find other methods to make it work.
If not, more training is needed for these parking officials
