Marc Slavin President of MarcParc here in DC and a pretty bright guy, spent a few minutes with me in the hotel bar. His topic, after some embarrassingly positive comments about PT, was about stealing in parking. He said that his Grandfather, who started the business decades ago told him that the worst problem was when you had collusion.

“My Grandfather said that if you had one person who stole, the amount could be small, say a few hundred or so. But if you had a number of people who worked together, it could be in the hundreds of thousands.” He went on to say that he was fortunate that his operation had evolved to a point where this wasn’t a problem. It’s something to think about, though, when you find a problem in your operation.
