Parking Acton style Part 2

By Pork Hunt - 17 August 2012 13

parking in acton

Following my Parking Acton style post a few days ago, here is an update.

Drivers are now lining up in threes to prevent motorcyclists from using the parking places designated for such vehicles. As you can see in the photo all three got booked but only one saved $13 by not paying for parking.

What’s Your opinion?

Have you driven in Canberra?

If you’re asking me that question then just a little ie.approx 3 million kms just in Canberra with over three decades driving experience of which almost two decades was spent in cabs.I could tell you a few stories!

Inferring the characteristics of a city of ~340 000 from the actions of people three at a time?

That’s quite a mighty leap. Mind the gap!

Try not to read too much into my quip.Canberrans as a whole are probably no more arrogant and inconsiderate per capita than most other city dwellers however the perception by many ‘interstaters’ that i have spoken to is simply that they believe Canberrans to be particularly arrogant and aloof.Have i filled the gap?

I just love seeing those little yellow envelopes… It really warms my heart.

That’s appalling and selfish. They couldn’t not have known that what they were doing was illegal. Perhaps parking fees need to be increased.

1. Spotto the ute on the right!
2. Out of my way I’m in a CAR.
3. Was this on free burrito day? (Queue reached Acton, I think.)

Yes, I mean it’s clearly being a four-wheel-drive owner that is to blame!

No, these are “SUVs”. Even if they have front and rear diffs, these cars have clearly never been offroad in their lives. Us performance enthusiasts refuse to be tarred with the same brush.

I almost took a photo of the same cars yesterday arvo as i was walking back to my car!!

Ample parking near the cop shop for $10 or $12 per day, i guess some prefer to pay $81 because it is 10 metres closer to there work place.

Sucks to be stupid.
