Steve Pratt has had a major whinge about the absence from Civic of a Government shopfront for those who wish to transact with the ACT Government without venturing onto teh sc4ry interweb.
Which is fair enough, it *is* a disgrace that there is no shopfront in the city’s putative CBD. I was, however, struck by this comment:
“I had my own experience this week, waiting 45minutes from 11:30am, standing in a queue with others obviously on precious lunch breaks, to renew my vehicle registration. One can only imagine the congestion during the peak of lunch hour.”
What kind of addled moron is still renewing rego in person?? You fill out the form online and they mail you the sticker fer chrissakes. Leave the shopfronts as a vestigial service for the ever declining numbers of terminal luddites (who, let’s face it, aren’t going to be around very much longer).
