Time for victims of technology to fight back?

01 August, 2019

• I HAVE total empathy for the anonymous victim of technology who wrote the letter (Cashless parking has caused great distress, July 25).

I gave up driving nine years ago as I was sick of traffic jams but if I’d still been at the wheel then cashless parking would have been the very last straw.

Little did I know that maintaining a road vehicle was a doddle compared with owning or renting a volatile smartphone.

Smartphones serve as magnets for thieves and they can dominate our daily routines in our perpetual hunt for charging points and signals.

I applaud your correspondent for refusing to conform to a technological world, because until new technology is reliable and intuitive it remains a gimmick.
