Parking is not the key to success of an area, free parking will not make a shopping centre successful just as charging for parking would kill off trade. Over charging will kill shopping areas.

There’s no business when its Snow business

We seem to have a phobia or at least an inability to drive when the weather takes a turn for the worst, now I agree with the guidance from the police not to drive unless it’s absolutely necessary. However I wonder what happens in northern America, or eastern Europe where it ‘really’ snows, and the weather hits temperatures of around -20. Do people stop working all through the winter? Perhaps not.
