SIR - I am writing in response to the letter from Steve Preece (Herts Advertiser, May 8) regarding car-parking charges in St Albans.

Let me tell you Steve, you are getting off lightly paying £4 for leaving your car all day at the station. It's a rip off at Harpenden Station - we have been paying £5.20 for a long time and no doubt that will be going up again, I suspect.

Also, the last Bank Holiday Monday the displayed charge of £1 was not honoured at any of the machines. So customers were further ripped off by having to pay £5.20 - what happened there then?

The car park in Harpenden used to be manned but no more as you can pay using your mobile but that is a more expensive option. We do not have tarmac - it's hardcore thrown down in extremely-narrow, marked bays. So maybe St Albans isn't so bad after all.

JULIE SMYTH,

Ranleigh Walk, Harpenden.
