IN response to the letter in last week’s Star about the veteran whose car had been fined in Billinge while parked up to attend a remembrance event.

These parking companies have become endemic and are parasites living off the back of ordinary people.

They are also responsible for people not coming into town centres.

Why they are employed by businesses I can never figure out.

Surely they would get more passing trade if people could park in these car parks whilst in town.
