  No need mate !

These insidious creations litter virtually all of London's roads. A few points which might help however :

1) Always park carefully in the confines of a parking bay - you can get a ticket if you don't.

2) Always check when exactly it is in operation, Saturday afternoon, Sundays and Bank Holidays can sometimes be free!

3) If someone else leaves before their time is up, you can use their credit.

4) Have plenty of change ready

5) A local car park might actually work our cheaper.

6) Don't park on a meter that is broken or with a bag over it.
