Letters to the Editor -December 2010 Image

Dear editor

I thought you may be interested in this picture – in view of the parking woes mentioned in your last issue!  

In this case-scenario, the business-man from the black car just locked up his car and left it overhanging the edge of the road (as pictured) and walked away, but doubled back and hid in a nearby building watching to see if the other male driver sitting in the white car would leave.

Eventually he did of course, and then he rushed back and re-positioned his car just as a parking inspector turned up!  

Regardless of who was right or wrong both should have been booked for bad driving practices as they were both obstructing the flow of traffic in both directions!  

What a pity the inspector didn’t turn up earlier!  

N.B. Since all the commercial people have moved into Bourke St, parking is getting tight and the ticket inspectors are having a field day!

Dear editor

Thanks for your excellent article regarding the parking issue in Docklands.

I’m living in 838 Bourke St and am facing serious parking problems as well. 

I’m working around the CBD and out of the suburb every day and I don’t have too much difficulty finding a park around 6pm.

Unfortunately, if I finish work later I always need to spend an extra 30 minutes (or more) finding a car park.  And if all I can find is a two-hour zone, I have to move my car throughout the night.

Parking officers work throughout the night.  My most recent notice was from 12.45am.  

I may need to work as hard as that officer to pay my fines.

Do you think the council could reconsider its parking policies in Docklands – in particular, after 6pm?
