Parking Weston Style

Tootza has sent this on in:

Couldn’t walk past this one without snapping a pick for you. To top it off a car had just left the ‘space’ to the left of this car!

I will go out on a limb and say that they migt have a partial disability and therfore do not require a whole space.

It’s probably more like i couldn’t give a fark attitude that seems to be more prevalent these days.

A car parked similar to this at O’connor, and a police officer drove past.
My partner waved the police officer down and pointed the car out, and asked him to write a ticket. Police Officer did nothing, and then drove off.

Note: I have a disability, and was going to a doctors appointment, and could not get a parking spot close by that day.

Perhaps get your partner to drop you off, then he can go and find a parking spot?

“Perhaps get your partner to drop you off, then he can go and find a parking spot?”

Surely you’re not suggesting that she should have thought about the situation and altered her immediate plans a little in order to overcome a very slight inconvenience caused by *shock horror* someone else?

Not a very Canberran suggestion.

I have a disability too, it’s called being white, able-bodied and male.

Now that i think of it, perhaps they should have followed the policeman, whilst flashing their lights and beeping the car horn, until he agreed to turn around give the illegally parked car a ticket.

To be fair, Tania01 doesn’t say that’s not what happened next, only that an appropriately close spot wasn’t available.

Also not mentioned is the nature of Tania01′s disbility, which may have required Partner to assist and not be off looking for a park.

Also not mentioned was the fact that the car in the OP may well have also been driven by a person with a disability blah blah blah…

Assumptions – the catalyst for most f**kups…

You mean like the half disabled space left by the Falcon in the photo above? It is also worth noting that in many instances, cars that use the parks have a disabled driver AND passenger. I know you like to stir the pot, but you do see the flaw in your logic, right?

Seems to be more bait then logic was intended. :P

Yes, they can issue the full range of parking tickets. However, parking tickets are low on the priority list compared to the other stuff they have to deal with and Canberra has dedicated parking inspectors for parking related issues.
