Scarborough Borough Council’s (SBC) on-street parking machines have been deliberately configured to extract more money than is necessary for parking. Despite the availability of 30 minute parking being prominently displayed for £1.20, the on-street machines will only give you a £2.00 1 hour ticket.
You put in £1.20, the machine recognises £1.20, you press the green ticket button and it asks for more money.
This is one of the reasons the SBC Bean Counters are positive there will be an “anticipated surplus” of £150,000 at end of the 2017/18 financial year to pay for the 2018 Tour De Yorkshire. Stand and Deliver!
