I often go to visit a mate who lives in Pyrmont and he gives me his vistors parking permit to put in my car. Its never a problem. They are year long and let you park anywhere in Pyrmont and they are portable so you can take them from car to car. Recently I took my bike and parked in a 2 hour space on Harris St Pyrmont. Low and behold when I got back, and almost to the minute, I had received a ticket because my parking pass was not displayed and I stayed 10 minutes over the 2 hours. Firstly I think its pathetic that while the city of sydney is promoting riding bikes and scooter to work instead of cars, they're still appy to fine you. And secondly, how are we meant to display parking permits on a bike? If I left a parking pass on my bike, guaranteed it would be stolen within the hour and end up in someones car and save them the money of buying one themselves. So what are we meant to do? How do we display them? I think I'll write in a letter with the parking permit number on it and ask them the same question.
