So having been riding only 2-3 weeks now I got my first parking ticket near work today in Surry Hills. And technically yes the warden is correct that I overstayed my 2 hours in the spot - I'm not trying to dispute that I am at fault. Admittedly I am feeling a bit sorry for myself as I arrived 6 mins over the 2 hours to see a ticket on my bike for 108 dollars. Also ignoring the fact that in this area there are usually 10 bikes around the street parked there pretty much all day long and never get tickets including a colleague's bike who parks there all day long for weeks without incident - but lucky him, he is on leave today. So aside from the fact that the warden managed to catch me inside such a small time window I'm pretty surprised that none of the other bikes around me received tickets - and at least 2 of them were there before and after me - I can't figure out the logic here? Neither of them had resident permits and their tires weren't even chalked? Am I missing something obvious here or did the warden just decide to pi*s on my day alone? Since then there are still loads of other bikes on the same street that have not moved, no chalk on their tires etc.. So although I'm obviously annoyed about the fine it is the strange singling out of my bike (a red CB500f) that I am left scratching my head about - any helpful thoughts?
