Considerate

YOUR town centre worker in last week's Mercury asks 'Why should I park miles away or pay for a town centre car park when I know there is no chance of me being caught?'

YOUR town centre worker in last week's Mercury asks 'Why should I park miles away or pay for a town centre car park when I know there is no chance of me being caught?'

The answer is - because it is the considerate thing to do. It allows people to pop to buy something they need quickly and gives local shops a chance to compete against the out-of-town outlets with car parks.

The attitude of only behaving with consideration to others under the threat of enforcement of a law results in antisocial acts such as fly tipping and invites more and more restrictions to general life in the form of laws and bylaws.

One should think of the wider aspects of a small selfish deed.
