Sounds like a win win to me. Neither the city nor the zoo had a payroll expense and the attendant keep things organized. Your figures assume a full lot every day and I am sure that was not the case.
I'll bet that if the city or the zoo decides to hire employees, (one would never do since you couldn't work a government employee seven days a week, and then there is vacation time and sick leave. Oh, and probably a supervisor in an office somewhere,) the entire project will cost more than this guy took and the parking prices will go up.

Ah. My planned hibernation seems to have worked as it is now apparently the beginning of April.

Fiona's instinct (?) is correct. http://www.hoax-slayer.com/bristol-zoo-car-park-hoax.shtml

Sorry to spoil a nice amusing tale.

If, as I have, you'd ever tried to find a car park at Bristol Zoo that charged as little as £1.40 you'd have known it for a hoax!

And clearly not written in the UK.

Sorry, didn't realize that Fiona had already debunked this one until after I had visited [url=snopes.com]http://www.snopes.com/crime/clever/carpark.asp[/url]

Yupp... it's a hoax!
