NSW - Clearway rules

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by david85dc, Feb 14, 2008.

  1. Hi Guys

    im kinda new around here...

    anyway, today i was up at the post office, quickly parked the bike on the side of the road and ran in to get a parcel.

    i walk out and see the street is vacant and my bike sitting on the sidewalk.

    i check the sign and opppps - clearway time.

    they left a RTA towing service infingement/fine on my bike.

    it doesnt actually say you have been fined, but it does say a photo was taken and a fine in excess of $150 will be sent to me.

    ok so what goes on here?

    do i lose points???

    do i have to pay a big fine even though they moved my bike 1 meter?

    rather silly all of this but interested to hear your thoughts

    cheers guys and gals..


  2. Fine coming in the mail for you.
  3. Send a letter back saying you had parked it in a driveway and someone had moved it on the street.

    I've heard this works..

  4. ahhhhh.......................

    no demerit points tho hey?

    phizog - i like your thinking
  5. while we're at this topic,

    do you guys still park at the ticket zone?

    coz i had to yesterday bcoz of my college area the bike zone was all taken.

  6. What's a sidewalk? I assume you mean footpath. :roll:

    Actually since you're in NSW you're lucky the council didn't come along then and fine you for parking on the footpath.

    Whereas here in Victoria you could just have parked there to start with.:p
  7. dont take this personally but it absolutely shits me when people park in clearways holding up traffic during thepeak hours! I mean How hard is it to read a sign. It usually takes one idiot and travel time to or from work doubles. :evil:

    end rant/ :grin:
