Paid parking was to fund free buses which was to be borne predominantly by people parking in town, the parking clock solution means all car owners who want to use disc zones will now fund the buses. W...

Just sayin'

I am pretty sure about this as I know several scientists/doctors, none of whom have sold their sole to 'big bad pharma' and all of whom despair at claims such as those made by Immuno Biotech.
