SIR - I am writing in response to Tracy Scollin's letter in last week's Comet.
She is moaning about parking in the residential streets, about how she is now unable to park there due to permit parking only. She complains that she had to nearly drive home again to be able to park her car.
As she is unable to afford the car parking fees (which are exceptionally high), might I suggest she leaves her car at home? She could try using her legs and walking to the station, or get the bus, or even buy herself a bicycle (a lot cheaper than car parking fees).
Why should local residents not be able to park outside their home so that people like Tracy can park for free? Local residents now have to pay to park outside their own homes, and all of this is due to people like Tracy.

SIR - Re Tracy Scollin's letter 'Parking Pressure for Commuters' in The Comet on February 19.
Tracy stated that she lives in the Westmill area, which, according to the latest timetable, is served by Arriva No 81 bus to Hitchin station, every 15 minutes commencing from 6.45am and taking just 16 minutes to get there.
Last bus from the station to Westmill leaves at 18.42. I do not know the cost of a daily/weekly or season ticket for the journey, but might this be the solution to the distress Tracy is currently experiencing when trying to find somewhere to leave her car while she commutes to work in London?
