RIP OFF PARKING SERVICES : TOP DIRECTOR FINALLY AGREES TO BE INTERVIEWED
- I take it you're the chief executive of this highly lucrative business
- Indeed I am....and an extremely well paid one at that
- So tell me.....how are things going at present ?
- Up and down ?
- What's on the "up" then ?
- The number of PCNs we issue every day.....you see they now run into thousands
- And the " down "
- Oh....that's the number of cases we win in the courts
- Why's that ?
- Well ...our business model works on a complete bluff.......but when savvy motorists call
our bluff the company still needs to take the dispute all the way . because if the word gets
out that we throw in the towel many more motorists will refuse to cough up. Thankfully,
the majority of motorists don't want the hassle and agree to pay ....such is their fragile
state of mind
- But don't you feel for motorists who.... for instance.... are asked to pay a parking charge of
£100 having already paid the money for a ticket
- No....these numpties probably broke the rules regarding data entry regarding their car
registrations..... or failed to display their tickets properly
- So you're happy to treat motorists like shit
- And why not......if they made mistakes they need to be punished
- Then I assume these parking charges are really about punishment ?
- No.....our primary goal is all about making huge profits
- By ruthlessly punishing motorists in the process ?
- Yes..... it's a double whammy effect
- But you're a motorist yourself aren't you ?
- Yes....but not one who breaks the rules
- But what if you.. inadvertantly.... did incur a PCN from another parking company ?
- Well , I would sort it out with a quick phone call . In this industry all the companies
work together as one big happy family, looking after each other's interests
- Honour amongst thieves ?
- Yes....you could say that........but in reality it's all about privilege , mutual back scratching
and doing one another favours. In business... oligopolies work a treat. We don't compete
against each other. We adopt the same business model......we impose the same fixed
extremely high parking charges , along with a ruthless, unforgiving attitude towards
whinging motorists , who constantly bleat out pathetic excuses expecting to be let off.
. Moreover , we apply the same terms and conditions to ensure consistency and certainty
in our dealings with those we see as a soft touch
- I'm appalled at what I'm hearing
- Do I give a fuck about what you and your readers may think about me. One develops an
extremely thick skin when wallowing in vast sums of money I pay myself......so you can
sod off now....... and let me revel in spending my ill-gotten gains
