I am interested in the letter about the NCP car park at Queen Street (Price of waiting, Letters, January 5).

I often use this car park, and there is a clear sign which shows that the tariff for up to two hours is as stated, £4.90.

If the person concerned had not seen this then a quick question to the attendant would have revealed the facts.

The attendant would, in all likelihood, have directed him to the other NCP car park at the rear of the station, which is a short stay park.

I know from experience that the NCP manager in York and his very conscientious team are usually very happy to give advice on parking options, even to the extent of directing people to council car parks. Long may they remain happy in doing so.
