I USED the Marygate car park on Wednesday and found it has a new system of pay on exit.

However, once again the council failed to take us into the 21st Century.

The machines, for some reason, don’t accept card payments.

We now live in an era where many people use their bank cards for most everyday items.

Sadly, I don’t carry £11.50 around with me in loose change and neither did a visiting tourist who was also struggling to make payment.

Please can City of York Council think before installing another machine.
