During the week I read an article which highlighted that the ACT Government is targeting illegal parking in Gungahlin with mobile systems which capture multiple pictures including the licence plate.
What I am interested in understanding is how the ACT Government is intending to tackle the problem of unregistered cars parked illegally. I have written to Minister Rattenbury’s office seeking a response.
In my local suburb of Moncrieff, this problem is becoming a significant concern to local residents, to the point that it is becoming absurd. There is a local automotive business in particular which takes advantage of any vacant spots around the suburb and parks cars being worked on in every street possible, including in surrounding suburbs.
At times I have seen cars with no tyres left up on jacks for days on end.
Surely this problem isn’t isolated to our suburb and I am keen to know who else experiences this problem and how you have dealt with it?
For context, locals from our suburb have reported the cars multiple times and inspectors do come out and place fines and/or defect notices but it doesn’t seem to address the crux of the issue.
