When someone goes to a hospital, it is not for entertainment. They are going for emergencies, surgery, treatments, check ups, etc. Parking should be free. We should not have to endured the stress of the high cost of parking at hospitals.
Hospitals routinely overcharge patients and visitors for parking. For example, to park at Sick Kids hospital in Toronto is $20 a day. Therefore, I propose that parking rates for visitors must not be higher than the municipal rate in which the hospital is located and no more than the cost of maintaining the parking lot for long term patients and their immediate family.
