The Toff-tastic West London borough of Kensington and Chelsea has recommended that Hugo and Caggie stop paying to park their Bentleys with cash – because hoover-hauling hoodlums are sucking coins out of the meters.*blinks*
...the gangs cut a suitably nozzle-sized hole in the side of the pay machine then suck out the shrapnel.Sometimes, you just have to admire the ingenuity...
"It is a trend we need to stop and motorists going cashless is one way we can help tackle this.." Cllr Will Pascall said.Hmmm. As the person who sent this puts it:
A couple of thing of note.
1) with all the surveillance cameras the police appear to be unable to catch anyone with a vacuum cleaner at work.
2) from the council, it appears that they are trying to make paying parking fees a cashless endeavor which allows them much more data collection.
