Privileged parking

Edinburgh City Council, here in Scotland, is looking at bringing in a charge on companies and businesses that have private parking for employees and customers. This will only effect the city centre, the most congested and polluted part of the city.
A scheme, similar to this, was introduced in Nottingham in 2010. There, any business providing privileged parking for employees and customers, are charged 402/annum for each space. It is then up to the business whether they pass on the charge to their employees and customers.
Most companies pass on the parking charge to their employees, which then makes public transport a more attractive means of getting to work than it was with free parking available.
I know, when I worked in Edinburgh, the toll on the Forth Road Bridge made public transport the best option for me. The bridge tolls were pricier than the fuel used. Now the bridge is free, and congested every rush hour!
