New hi-viz jackets help Fethiye motorists to spot their parking man.

Remember last year when the contract for street parking charges was awarded to a new company, and a whole new cast of parking men appeared in bright turquoise polo shirts?

Then the weather got colder and the parking men sensibly added jumpers and jackets, but it got harder to find them as they blended in so well with everyone else on the pavements.

Well, we are pleased to announce that the parking men are once again highly visible, as their employers have issued them with matching bright yellow padded waterproof coats.

The parking man who kindly posed for the photo said there had been complaints about their lack of visibility, hence the new standard uniform.
