Back to the dark ages
IT is impossible to pay to park at the municipal car park beneath San Vicente town hall with a €20 note.
A sign reminds drivers that they must pay either in coins or notes of €5 or €10 and there are no facilities for paying by credit card, let alone with a mobile or smart watch.
Opposition councillor Jordi Roig who belongs to the Ciudadanos party called on the PSOE-EU coalition at the town hall to replace the existing cashier machines with more modern versions.
“It’s backward for a public car park run by a town hall in 2019 to lack the necessary technology for drivers to pay with a credit card or mobile app,” Roig complained.
Users cannot even pay with €20 or €50 notes and change is always given in coins, he pointed out. As a result, the inconvenience meant that people were discouraged from using the car park.
