IT’S easy to understand Richard Dore’s frustration upon receiving a parking fine but, sadly, traffic wardens are a necessary evil.
Aberystwyth was recently without wardens for a whole year and far from motoring paradise, it produced dangerous and possibly life-threatening chaos.
Unfortunately, when human beings are left without rules, the law of the jungle prevails and otherwise sensible law-abiding adults revert to truculent toddlers.
Rules are there for a reason and no-one is above them.
Also, it seems unfair to take it out on the parking shop cashier at the end of what was probably a not too pleasant day. After all, she was only doing her job!
