Parking Fees: Is it Right?

Does it get in your nerves? Huge shopping malls charge for parking fees nowadays. Sometimes I think it is so unfair considering that we come with our cars there to shop, yet your car is being charged for the parking slot. The fee would cover for the first three hours only, then you will pay in excess of that. Boy, is that ever right?

i believe they have the right to do so because they are in the business of making money, they have constructed the parking space so that people who patronizes their shop could conveniently park their cars within the vicinity and they are paying for that vacant lot in taxes and to make self sustaining, they have to make money out of it and thus giving additional service to their customer.the parking fees has it's reasons 1)to increase turnovers of customers 2) to lessen the chances of drivers parking their cars for a very long time and going somewhere else other than going inside their shops 3)security purposes to prevent carnapping.
