Scratch the digital
07 February, 2019
• CAMDEN has recently scrapped our familiar old scratch-card parking permit system in favour of a complex new digital procedure.
We were given no warning of this and it is likely to inconvenience rather more people than this 84-year-old lifelong Hampstead resident. Residents over 60 may find themselves unable to receive visitors or that vital plumber summoned to see to a leak.
Since digital connections are known to suffer occasional breakdowns, residents more savvy than myself are likely to find Camden’s new system less than 100 per cent reliable – as well as considerably less convenient than our simple old scratch cards.
