*Sigh* It seems that everytime I find a good parking spot around my place of work (in Perth CBD) the City Council find a way of ruining it. Anyone in Perth knows the Horseshoe Bridge next to the railway station, and may remember when those arches underneath were open for vagabonds to get out of the rain, or, during the day, for motorbikes to park in. Well the Council blocked those up quick-smart. Or parking behind the trees that line the roads; not causing any harm, but not paying for a ticket either. So the Council, the dog-in-a-manger mob that they are, installed motorcycle bays with metres and started fining people for parking behind the trees. It's such a petty mentality. ANYWAY, my question is directed at the states other than W.A. What's the case with parking in your CBDs? Last I heard, citizens of Melbourne staged a protest, so to speak, by parking a single motorcycle in each and every parking bay in the city, to the frustration of car drivers. Is this true? If so, it might be about time to follow the example elsewhere. It's hard to imagine anyone as bad as the Perth Council ... except for perhaps the Fremantle Council. So, thoughts?
