Thanks to Corey – over on Facebook:
Very insightful JVH-I have often thought about the very nature of parking and why it translates into a negative response instead of a positive one. I think that it boils down to three concepts, all stemming from human behavior.
First, when dealing with automobiles, there is already a sense of entitlement and everything that comes associated with it.
Second, the auto can be thought of as an extension of ourselves, our personality, and our identity.
Third, parking equals revenue-which opens a Pandora’s box of issues dealing with financial accountability.
All three of these are deeply rooted and most operators and even clients, cannot (or will not) maintain the high levels of ethics and efficiency needed to improve the image of parking. Just my two cents worth…
