Parking at Mater Dei has reached an absurd stage. In the morning there is total chaos as people cannot find parking. Trying to go into the dedicated parking is indeed in certain instances useless and impossible. In certain occasions there are persons in the cars waiting in the car park just hoping that someone drives away (not to mention the quarrels and incidents while waiting). The issue is that this portal received complaints that they were basically charged uselessly in the sense that at a certain point they gave up yet they still had to pay to get out of the car park since they stayed there for some 40 minutes.
On the other hand in the evenings there are plenty of empty spaces in the indoor and outdoor carparks. The areas reserved for consultants is basically empty. Yet if you arrive with an emergency and you decide to park there with the thought that you are not obstructing anyone at that time….. mistake…. here comes your clamping . To add insult to injury 1) the clamping occurs in an eye blink and 2) the release maybe only paid in cash so if you do not have cash you have to go a long way through Mater Dei…. Alla faccia dell’emergenza! If you tell staff that it was an emergency they will simply tell you that you should have advised before….hello! its an emergency!
Whether it is an emergency or not one questions why these spaces are being blocked even during night time when they are not used? Is it convenient for Mater Dei to have an additional income stream? Also, how come all appointments are still occurring in the morning and not distributed during the day? What happened to the limelight service?
