You are very naive if you think that you pay for all the 'services' you receive. If I didn't go out at night should I save my proportion of costs that go on nighttime policing and resultant NHS costs, etc. - should only those people that are arrested pay for nighttime policing? I can walk to most Hertford shops so why should I pay a premium on the prices at Tesco, Wickes, etc. to provide parking for those that drive there every time - I want my 'no-parking' reductions!! There are lots of things we pay for but don't use and vice-versa. The argument for nighttime parking charges in my opinion is really about whether we want to live in a town with a decent economy that can provide jobs and good facilities for locals and visitors - and whether charging would have any effect.
