I think it is time the Government put aside their revenue raising parking strategies and considered a parking permit system for residents in the inner northern suburbs.
I don’t know exactly which suburbs this affects but living in Braddon and having a car is a bit of a problem.
From 9am-11am weekdays it’s illegal to park in any of the local streets and of course that means most of the residents who are not lucky enough to have an underground car park have no alternative but to move the car a long way from home or risk a $72 dollar fine each day Mon-Fri.
The only theory I can come up with is the Government make it illegal to park in the hours when people would be going to work so they are essentially forced to park in civic and pay as much as $8 a day for the pleasure.

In Sydney and probably many other metro cities, those who can prove they live in a street with such parking rules can apply for a parking permit.
All I am saying is why do those who live in these suburbs have to be punished and basically be held hostage OUT of home until 11am when its again ok to have your car at home?
I did do my research just to make sure there wasn’t a plan in place to deal with this already… This is the best I could find on the TAMS website.
