    I was never a fan of the paid parking, but it did give me a place to use a florin coin other than the winkelwagens at Superfood.
    I want to grow my own food, but I can't find any bacon seeds...

    ugh. It's not the cost, it's the PITA of parking in the right places and then finding the place to pay, etc.

    Agree Robin, a couple of years ago we were scrambling to try to find a PROPER parking spot, found it then had to locate the machine to pay. It was a stressful learning experience. Plus, there were many others doing the same thing. Now we know more about parking but the first few times were a pain.

    I don't mind paying but the system is not user friendly!! When it first started too many V cars were ticketed...in my opinion.

    The good thing they are not booting the cars as they did when they first started!

    They should just add 10 bucks to your rental car price, put a sticker in the window and let you park anywhere.
