I had a chance to snap an ACT Gov plated vehicle parked for 30mins lengthways on the footpath outside my house a few months ago- they came to visit the housing residents over the road. Wifey put a stop to my photographic endeavors tho, she knew I’d use the photo to start an argument.

Some of the big advertising intersections get ridiculous when the inspectors haven’t visited in a while, not to mention they’re generally on the side of 80kmph roads with no real easy way for someone to stop and look at them without disrupting traffic.

They are parked illegally – plain and simple. So they of course deserve to be booked.

I wouldn’t call this desperation from the inspector.

Now if only I can get a ranger to come out and book both my neighbours cars for parking on the nature strip. Now they are a hazard blocking my lineof sight.

But come on… it’s the same thing as me parking on a mates nature strip if I go to have a beer with him.

So it’s ok to park illegally on a nature strip because you want to have beer with a mate?

Parking illegally trying to sell their car, I assume to skimp out on the $60odd that is would cost to advertise on carsales. Receive a parking ticket for more than what the add would cost, GOLD!

I’ve actually seen this a fair bit recently. Inspectors are really getting lazy if they have to resort to ticketing a harmless car for sale.
I know, technically it is fair game as they are parked illegally. But come on… it’s the same thing as me parking on a mates nature strip if I go to have a beer with him.
The only time I would agree with these tickets is if the cars were parked dangerously – eg. blocking line of sight at an intersection.
Clearly someone somewhere in the Government isn’t meeting the revenue targets so they’re getting desperate.
