The "Diamonds" may have a family business but Diamond Parking http://diamondparking.com/ is just as heartless as any other typical corporation. They prey upon hundreds of thousands who wish to park, with contracts that people really don't have an opportunity to read before using their 'services'. And they don't give change, so people get ripped off frequently because it is impossible to use all of the parking for which one pays. For example, a division of their company that they call "Parking Services" runs the lot underneath the Fremont PCC though there are no readily visible signs indicating who is really behind that operation. There is a prominent sign indicating that the lot is for PCC and other shoppers, but elsewhere in the dimly lit garage a tiny white sign with blue letters indicating something about an hour and a half of free parking with very small print that cannot be seen by an ordinary person while driving that indicates that one must pay in advance to stay for longer than an hour and a half. And it is very easy to not even see the small pay-box in the dimly lit garage because there are no signs indicating where it is, if it occurs to one to look for it. Only after receiving a ticket which says "PARKING PENALTY FEE: $30.00 ... PENALTY FEE DUE WITHIN 15 DAYS ... ADDITIONAL LATE CHARGE: $25.00..." does it become apparent that this is a division of the Diamond Parking Inc. Are you gullible enough to believe that it really costs Diamond Parking $25 to not have the $30 fee within 15 days? The City of Seattle should own and maintain parking lots in the City, because it is a more logical way for Seattle to raise money for road construction than merely using parking meters for too few spaces, and tickets. Do you think that the "Public Good" is served by Diamond family being able to do this to us?
