Parking Civic Style

By johnboy - 25 September 2012 52

civic parking

This in from Mark:

From Sunday ..

3 bikes racing for a cappuccino + 2 cop cars (one under-cover) = proof radio waves travel faster than the fastest motor bike, thus fines all round.

Now if we could just get those same police to book the jerk-offs who frequently park their cars in that motorcycle-only parking area…

They are both un-marked… so which one is undercover?

How much in wages for five police officers (one working and four standing around) was spent to book motorcyclists for taking up a space that doesn’t even look like a car could park in.

Mr Griffiths – you’ve blown the cover of two unmarked cars – a white Falcon with a rear spoiler and ugly mag wheels, and a silver-grey Cruze. They’ll never be able to work again! Or should we be as suspicious of white Falcons as we are of white Commodores?

It’s not silver-grey, it’s just grey. And it’s not a Cruze, it’s a Commodore station wagon. Otherwise, a totally worthwhile comment.

Is it a loading zone or a set down zone?

These jokers could have been out booking the nutters speeding and almost smashing into other cars swerving between lanes going through the road works on Parkes Way. The kind of things they should know are happening and putting people at risk.

They also have a maroon Mazda 6, a maroon Aurion, two black territories and a black Commodore in the City area. Not to mentioned at least a couple of purple utes to match the marked purple ute.

I think Mark (the OP) got it right. Their parking is fine but the way they made their way to the said legal parking spots is probably under question.

Loud pipes..? Lane splitting…? Excessive accelaration…? Loss of control through waving their front wheels in the air….? All commonplace when you own one of these bikes (…I really miss mine!)

The “boxing in” by the cars suggests some sort of low-key pursuit.

Looks pretty tame unlike the time an extremely agro harley rider was pulled over by a ‘green’ cop outside the cab rank in Bunda St. The bikie pulled up in the middle of the road and refused to move so back up was called and after much yelling and cursing re an excessively loud exhaust on the bike they finally let him go some 15 mins later and he roared up the road at speed with the cops looking on shaking their heads.
