A Costly Haircut


Frogfoot

1,541 views

Well a first for me - a parking ticket on the bike. I've parked in parts all over this city, including right in the city centre. Bikes will park in no-stopping, on footpaths all kinds of places. This time I parked inside a painted triangle (the spare bit at the end of a row of angle parking). I've parked in places like that all over and never had any trouble. Riders get into strife if they block driveways or other problems, but the dead space that cars can't use, no worries.

The council in this part of town obviously has other ideas. Will be calling them up Monday, see if I can sweet talk them a little.

The haircut only cost $6, the total for the day $203!!

Ouch! Yeah, I'd say a costly haircut! One days parking will be easier for bikes, and the environment will be cleaner.

$197 for a parking ticket?! That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard! Why on earth is it so expensive?Unless they wrote you up for illegally parking in a handicapped spot I can't understand such a high cost.BTW, where do you live, so just in case I'm ever there I know to either park perfectly legally, or just continue thru town without stopping!

Disobeying a No Stopping sign sad.gif It's Australia (and Sydney is worse) but like I said, I've parked in similar places downtown, must be a suburb thing.

Just remember next time when you're riding with a good size group of buds, to take up all the parking spots, and not park more than one bike in a slot... They'll never learn !
