Would someone explain to me why there are Car Club car spaces on and around SE1? And who are they?
They are typically owned by Streetcar (http://www.streetcar.co.uk/location.aspx?location=1621
) to provide a dedicated spot for their pay as you go cars. It's not much different to residents parking, and although the spaces is granted to the company, it is really for the benefit of the local community at large. With too many people and not enough space, it's a worthwhile approach.
Despite the good intentions, when returning a car on Saturday to their bay on Weston Street
, I found a taxi parked in the middle of it. Maybe they should be painted ‘super highway' blue. Nobody would dare park in them then :-)
