Size matters when it comes to parking – I should pay less

• THIS planned increase in residents’ permits costs is further evidence of the disgusting sneaky take over of our streets by the super rich.

I have lived at my present address since 1986. It used to have many more normal cars. Now, in my street alone, luxury Chelsea tractors often outnumber practical city cars by 10 to one.

Many of these monsters don’t even fit the width limitation of bays. I see lazy rich people use the monsters mostly for one person, two at the most. My Nissan Micra regularly sits between two of these huge cars.

I should be paying a fraction of the permit cost and a fraction of road tax as the selfish owners of these extravagant cars. Can someone tell me why that is not so?
