Now that parking attendants have converged on Carden Avenue and started ticketed cars parked on the grass verges (The Argus, December 30), I hope, having set a precedent, this continues throughout the city.

While the city centre lacks grass verges and is not affected as such, the city's estates, such as mine, are.

Some are reduced to bare earth and most others are becoming as bad due to constant misuse and car parking.

It would be unfair to those drivers fined on this occasion if this was just a one-off.

Having been started, it must carry on and will, hopefully, prevent this kind of vandalism in the future and allow the verges to re-grow.
