I was recently fined for parking my motorcycle in one of the dedicated motorcycle parking bays in the city. The bay was the one near the corner of Little Collins Street and Exhibition Street. It was one of those ones which has a corridor in the middle of the bay surrounded by 6 parking bays for bikes. There are a few of these scattered throughout the CBD. I have never seen them anywhere else. The offence was for a breach of road rule 209(2) - apparently my bike was facing the wrong direction (bikes are supposed to be parked facing inwards towards the middle corridor). At any rate, when I collected my ticket, I noticed a number of other riders had been fined for the same 'offence', and chatted to another rider later that week who had also been fined. Just wanted to let everyone know that road rule 209 does not apply to motorcycles (see road rule 209(3)) and if you received one of these tickets (or you do receive one in the future) and it is not withdrawn by the Council, you should apply for a review of the fine by the Council on the grounds that the issue of the infringement notice was unlawful. Needless to say, folks, I am not purporting to give legal advice here. Just sayin', as they say!
