Stephen LaBranche, 61, treasurer of the Hampton Beach Village District, said he doesn't fault Dave's Garage, The Kentville hotel or the state for the towing problem.
But during his walks on the beach, he said, he frequently encounters people who are obviously confused about the "Park and Display" system.
"One thing I have observed, if you don't know how to handle the machine and you get 20 people behind you, there's some real pressure, said LaBranche, a former Haverhill resident who has lived in Hampton since 1991.
Another problem is that the machine's instructions are only in English.
"I can sympathize with people that get a ticket or get towed," LaBranche said.

Stephen R. LaBranche, 57, of Hampton, turned himself in to police Wednesday on a warrant issued by the town's Police Department.
LaBranche faces a Class A misdemeanor charge of sexual assault and is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 27 at Hampton District Court.
Hampton Police Lt.
According to the complaint, LaBranche allegedly sexually assaulted the minor by touching the complainant's genitalia on or about Aug. 28.
The complaint goes on to say that LaBranche "was in a position of authority over the victim and used that authority to coerce the victim to submit."
The age of the alleged victim, as well as the sex, was not disclosed in the complaint.
Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan said law enforcement officials would not comment at this time on the relationship between the alleged victim and LaBranche.
LaBranche served as a Hampton Beach Village Precinct commissioner for about a year before resigning in the '90s.He retired from his position as commercial print manager at Seacoast Media Group in October 2007.
If convicted, LaBranche could face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
In the 1960s Stephen LaBranche ..., 9 Mar 2009 [cached]
In the 1960s Stephen LaBranche went to work for his mother in a "building that looked like a castle" just "over the bridge near the train tracks" in Atkinson.
LaBranche, in his 20s at the time, spent long days editing copy, typesetting, cutting and pasting advertisements and laying out newspaper pages in the building, which housed Castle Publications, owned by Stephen's mother Lorraine LaBranche, Bob Phinney and Bob Ryan.
"She started that," Stephen said. "She is (still) very proud of that paper ...; In the heyday of newspapers, the '60s, '70s and '80s, anybody could start a newspaper and it would be off flying," he said.
When his mother decided to head the Raymond Times while at Castle Publications in the early 1960s, Stephen LaBranche said news was still "light."
A free weekly publication, originally in tabloid format, The Raymond Times generally featured "lots and lots of pictures ...; especially of local kids," with stories on local Boy Scout troops, the Brownies, church events and press releases from local organizations," LaBranche said.
"Every story always ended the same way," LaBranche recalled, noting the customary conclusion asserted that 'a good time was had by all.'"
Though upbeat community news was an attractive reason to pioneer a newspaper in Raymond, LaBranche said the reasonable cost associated with producing the venture was appealing to his mother as well.
"Back then newsprint was cheap," LaBranche said. "It wasn't a big deal to run thousands of them (papers) and go distribute them. At that time Raymond only had a population of about 3,000 people. It was different than it is now," he said. According to LaBranche, Castle Publications did "bulk drops" of the Raymond Times, delivering 25 to 50 copies of the papers at local establishments in surrounding towns.
According to LaBranche, Raymond was a "growth area" in the 1960s and The Raymond Times had "a ...; future, back when newspapers had more value. At the time, LaBranche said someone like his mother could start a "weekly newspaper and, bang, it was an instant success."
According to LaBranche, The Kingstonian was absorbed by Castle Publications after a few years.
LaBranche worked with Smith when the Kingstonian was in production at Castle Publications each week.
"She did everything," LaBranche said of Judy Smith.
In 1979, the Thayer family, which owned the Exeter News-letter Company, purchased Castle Publications' group of papers, Stephen LaBranche said.
When the sale happened, LaBranche said he took a crew from Castle Publications to Water Street in Exeter in order to produce The Kingstonian, The Raymond Times and all the other New Hampshire publications that had been owned by Castle. Work on the papers happened on Wednesday nights after the work for the Exeter News-Letter was finished, he explained.
In 1982, Ottaway Newspapers, which was publishing The Hampton Union, purchased The Exeter-News-Letter and three weeklies covering Raymond, Kingston and Plaistow. Operations were again transferred, this time to Hampton and then, in 1989, headquarters were set up in Stratham.
"During the '80s a synergy was created when those papers were bought," LaBranche said, recalling that the company had everything south of Portsmouth "locked in."
Though the company was successful during that time, LaBranche said the original titles from Castle Publications were eventually pared down in the late '80s so only The Kingstonian, The Raymond Times and the Plaistow-Hampstead News remained.
In 1995, the three papers were combined into The Rockingham News, which remained part of the company roster until today.
When LaBranche recently retired from Seacoast Media Group, The Rockingham News was still around, a reminder of his early days at Castle Publications, which is no longer in existence.
