It's the traffic wardens of Yeovil. See, they have the challenging job of issuing tickets to fouling parkers. They do provide a service by keeping the 15/30 minute bays available for those quick visits to the bank and the loading bays available for shop deliveries. But what I notice as a pedestrian by-passer is the willingness to have a conversation with motorists about the parking rules (e.g. where to move the car to restart the clock) or why a parking ticket was issued. They listen and are sympathetic. There is respect there. And people seem calm about it all - I'm sure not everyone is though! I saw a woman in a loading bay who had been unloading but overstayed the limit, and although the attendant had just printed the ticket so was unable to cancel it, they talked about it and he was explaining the appeals system before she drove away. Not to mention that the fines are reasonable too which helps. On the other hand, in Edinburgh there is an army of wardens out looking to capture as many motorists as they can.
It is just nice to see something of a society functioning within realms of politeness and mutual respect.
