Last November I speculated about different policies for scheduling the collection of cash from parking meters.
On Monday morning last week, the meters in our residential street were emptied. It struck me that whatever rules you have for collecting cash, this was not optimal. There are no parking restrictions at the weekend, so these meters had been full of their money for three nights and 66 hours. Fortunately, the local crime figures have not recorded any vandalism of parking meters in the past year.
