Does anyone else have a issues living in apartments in Canberra??

By sjgcd - 31 August 2010 33

I have a constant battle with idiots parking in our communial driveway, obviously blocking our access to our underground carpark!!!

Its the same cars everytime!!

I’ve left notes on their windscreen and called the body corporate BUT still nothing is done about these people who have no obvious consideration for those who actually live in these apartments!!

Keep bothering the body corporate, over and over and over again. It’s their job to look after that kind of stuff. Don’t let up until you have a resolution.

Try a brick. They are cheap and you can use them over and over again until they get the message. If that does not work then I suggest using old paint.

A couple of 2 inch nails in the tyres should do the trick if polite notes don’t work.

If they are parked there when you come home, I’d suggest parking them in. Leave a nice note, so they can call you to come move your car when then next want to go somewhere. This will give you the opportunity for a frank and honest exchange on the subject of appropriate parking places.

the flaw was to leave notes in the first place and to have contacted the body coprporate – now anything happening to these vehicles (and accidents do ‘appen, know what i mean?) they’ll come looking for you.

what you need is an accomplice and an alibi…

Call Roads and Traffic management (I think they’re called that), I’ve had experience with a similar sort of thing, and they can give you a number to call and they’ll recieve a nice yellow envelope on the windscreen. 🙂

Obviously you’ve never had inconsiderate or bogan neighbours.

Everyone’s had their cement pills here I see. I would park them in too, although I would imagine you could risk damage to your vehicle.

Some people hey!

Eye of the Tiger – if it’s on private land, no, they won’t!

I-filed: Actually, they’ll write tickets on any roads or road-related area – private land or not – unless it’s specifically signposted as “Private Property”. They even write tickets within private carparks like the Westfield one.

Everyone knows a friend with a total bomb who can come over at short notice for some drinks. Good person to have with you when responding to the irate phone call too.

Or if there is a nice garbage hopper near by, the sort on wheels, a length of rope connecting one to their car will provide much amusementª.

a - actual amusement may vary.

Have a nice feed of seafood, prawns in particular, then leave the heads in the plenum chamber of the car, the juices from these will etch in the plastics.

No visible damage, not identifiable immediately, but the car will stink inside everytime it is driven for 6 months…..
