Parking charges drive me from rail

East Devon District Council must be really desperate for money.

East Devon District Council must be really desperate for money.

I used to drive my car down from Brixington, park behind the train station and catch the train to work - cutting down on my carbon footprint.

Now, EDDC has put a pay meter at said car park. You have to pay �5 per day at the time I go to work, then buy the off-peak train ticket, which is more than if you travel after 9 o'clock.

Am I going to catch the train anymore? Nope, it's going to be cheaper to drive to work. Sorry environment, I cannot afford to be kind to you.

I wonder how many people have been caught out by this sudden move.
