Bah humbug attitude of Dublin Street Parking Service has everything to do with profits and nothing to do with traffic free flow

12 December, 2005


Sinn Féin Councillor Larry O'Toole has described reports that clampers in Dublin have been put under pressure in the run up to Christmas to reach arbitrary targets of 275 cars a day "as another kick in the teeth for commuters in the city". He said "the bah humbug attitude of Dublin Street Parking Service has everything to do with profits and nothing to do with easing traffic chaos."

Councillor O'Toole said:

"Clamping was introduced by the City Management to deal with the issue of illegal parking but now we see Dublin Street Parking Service, the private company which runs the service, trying to abuse their position to further penalise commuters. The only reason to set these arbitrary targets is to increase profits. It has nothing to do with assisting traffic flow in the city. I will be contacting the company and the City Manager about the matter." ENDS
