Double standards on parking rules
READING about the fine imposed on David Bailey (The Herald, October 26) for pulling into a bus bay to avoid blocking the road at Hyde Park shops, it makes me realise that Plymouth would rather get money out of motorists by devious camera work than put a warden or policeman in the city centre pedestrian areas and impose huge fines on drivers who mingle with pedestrians. Isn't one fatality enough?
On Wednesday, October 24, we had to stand still beside the sundial and give way to a large bottled water delivery van which was driving around the sundial.
I waved at him in disbelief as he parked between the sundial and toilets, either to make his delivery to a nearby shop or perhaps spend a penny (sorry 20 pennies) – or does the loo also sell bottled water?
A few weeks before that incident we, along with other pedestrians, had to stand to one side in Armada Way to allow a bank security van to squeeze between the pasty shop tables and chairs which clutter the pavement and a tree.

This used to be called a pedestrianised area.
We regularly see other vehicles including council ones driving all around here.
I presume Mr Bailey would have a camera van on his tail if he were to try it!
It isn't a bit of wonder we are always tripping over lose paving slabs walking down from Sainsbury's and up through the town.
Come on Plymouth City Council, get your act together.
