Price shoppers out of cars

He said: « If we are doing everything to make sure towns are attractive for bikes and public transport,
against humanity card game, then it’s right to say cars should be dis incentivised. »

In response, Simon Kirby, Conservative MP for Brighton Kemptown, said: « Norman Baker’s desire to see people priced out of parking their cars is incredibly short sighted and would be disastrous for high streets up and down the country at a time when we should be doing all we can to support local businesses.

« It is already incredibly expensive to park in Brighton and we should be looking to reduce this cost to help attract people to our local shops, bars and restaurants, not increase it still further. »Most retailers of these types of goods do not locate themselves in the town centre either as there is usually no parking available outside the store.

I think the point being made is that for most trips it is unnecessary to use a car when there is public transport available.

I think the point being made is that for most trips it is unnecessary to use a car when there is public transport available. Convenient and usable park and rides (just just a third rate sports stadium car park) and reliable and good value public transport are the basis for « getting motorists out of their cars », not just raising the parking or forcing a slow trawl through areas.

If towns such as Norwich, Cambridge and Guildford can offer these, and are regularly used by both shoppers and commuters then why don’t Sussex administrations? Clearly they have another agenda based on pointless,
crimes against humanity card game, money flushing iSores, self serving ‘kudos’ plans and general indifference to the people they are supposed to serve.

MPs claim this is the way to go but they offer no provision of an alternative to motorists in the face of rising costs.

I already don’t spend my money in city centre shops instead I use the big out of town places with free parking or the internet. Who’s loss ? Well not mine ! The reason I don’t use the city centre ? Because of stupidly high parking and bus ticket costs. So Norm has already got his way.

What about making in city public transport affordable with discounts for couples and families? How about some joined up planning whereby cars are banned from town and city centres but there are park ‘n’ ride facilities on the outskirts? The trouble is this takes planning and political will it’s SO much easier to keep on trotting out the tired old « lazy motorists should use public transport and we’re going to bleed them white until they do » line.
