Finding a safe and handy place to park in Greystones has become increasingly difficult as the population and the demand has grown ever greater.
Pretty much every business in town has had to give their car parks over to large parking operators, most shops and bars, etc, offering a refund for those short-term customers who might otherwise drive elsewhere.
That doesn’t mean that all is hunky agus dory with this new reality, of course, with quite a few people in the town arguing that the parking operators are merely out to make money – preying and praying that you’ll be a few minutes late.
One such operator, NCPS, reckons that the anger towards its operatives in Greystones has now gotten out of hand. So much so, they’ve released a statement…
It has come to the attention of NCPS that one of its parking operatives is experiencing unfair harassment and intimidation by some people/drivers in Greystones, Co Wicklow.
This harassment has taken the form of the man being regularly photographed as he goes about his work in Greystones and threats being made by individuals to post those photos on social media platforms and in local media outlets.
As will be appreciated, this situation is causing great distress to our employee and is worsened by people taking his photograph and threatening to distribute these photos on social media.
“This man is simply going about this job, working on behalf of clients who have engaged our services to regulate parking on their property and he should be free to do so without fear or intimidation,” an NCPS spokesperson said adding: “We would appeal to the person or persons doing this in Greystones to stop and reconsider their actions.”
Whatever you may feel about getting clamped, chances are, the clamper can always argue that he is just doing his job. Still, not sure we’re about to see any group hugs in a Greystones car park any time soon…
