Not only did the poor woman suffer a horrible accident while on holiday, but they rubbed salt into the wound by refusing to waive the fine. Has nobody got an ounce of compassion at the council?

What an affront to Glasgow (Tourist fined for parking (Evening Times, August 30).
Traffic wardens are either devoid of common sense or, programmed to issue parking tickets come hell or high water. Either way, this tourist was badly treated.
I regularly watch "real" traffic cop programmes on TV and note officers have discretionary powers to use as they see fit. A friendly word can often be more effective than a gung-ho booking Perhaps the Scottish Tourist Board can gain some kudos by paying fine to ensure we are still 'the friendly city'!

IN reply to Angry Commuter (Evening Times, August 30) about decent coffee shops and eateries, yes it's true we have many outdoor areas in Buchanan Street, Sauchiehall Street and Merchant City. The issue isn't about these areas, it's about a coffee shop at a very specific section of Argyle Street which would truly benefit from a zone where shoppers could sit indoors or outside and where commuters have an obvious abundance of space in which to walk. The sector designated is at the bottom of a much coveted listed building in this part of Argyle Street which should get the recognition it deserves.

I was delighted to read in Saturday's Evening Times that work is under way on the Kelvingrove Park bandstand. If it's done properly it will be a wonderful facility for people to enjoy and could bring back a real sense of community through various events.
