Parking Woden Style

By johnboy - 28 November 2012 28

woden parking

After a break for a few days the parking photographs have made a storming resurgence.

Cameron has sent this in:

I’ve finally decided to send in a photo of a Woden regular (car park southside of Aviation House).

I haven’t been keeping count, but if I said this vehicle had been booked 20 times this year it would be a conservative estimate.

No ticket today alas, but the owner of this vehicle dutifully places their prepaid parking ticket on the dash every time.

No sign of a disabled sticker (not that this would allow them to park in this ‘spot’ though).

Enjoy.

Why park illegally AND buy a ticket as well. Save the ticket money for the ticket… so to speak.

Having worked at Health, the parking there is an absolute nightmare. I used to buy prepaid tickets (monthly) and unless you get in at approx 8am, you won’t get a park and thus losing a day off your pre-paid ticket.
People have been parking in those type ofspots for a long long time, there’s just not enough parks there for the amount of workers

More like 8:20am, but yes, parking is a pain if you work at Health…and the whole carpark is set to be developed, so it’s going to get worse.

It’s good, buying a parking ticket these days is optional, either way you’re not going to get booked.

Not enough people willing to take a bus which stops just near by.

How the hell do I pos t pics here? The main reason I call them hopeless is we don’t see them in Grenville court un less I shoot them an email. They rock up walk about and piss off not booking the cars half blocking the drive ways ect TNT have stopped backing in to our drive now to deliver parts most days it’s just too hard so they stop in the street and un load blocking traffic

$8 all day parking in the Westfield Neptune St car park. Never been full when I’ve shown up at 8:25. You will have to *shudder* walk an extra 300 metres to work.

Too true, i worked with lots of people who lived in the surrounding suburbs who drove to work..

I, living in Gunners found it very hard to lug my daughter to childcare (@ Curtain) and then bus it to Woden… so driving was the only option.

I’d like to ask the question, why isn’t that a car space anyway? It seems to be wasted land if it isn’t used as one. From the markings, it looks like you are not meant to be driving over it either, so there must be plenty of room to drive around without needing it there. At the very least it could be a small spot or motorbike parking. I don’t think this guy is morally doing anything wrong since he doesn’t seem to be blockign anyone’s path and that could and probably should be a car space anyway and he is paying for the parking. Seems a bit unfair that he pays for parking and parks in a way that’s no hassle to anyone else and just constantly gets fines while, according to others in this thread, people blocking driveways get away without tickets frequently. It seems to me that he is trying to take the moral high ground by paying for parking and not just parking illegally and not paying.

This car is illegally parked today in what looks a very similar position to the photo.
