WTF! Went to catch up with my brother today and catch a movie. I parked outside his place of work (South Yarra) on the footpath and came back to find a ticket on my bike for doing so, 72 bucks as well! The actual infringement is (verbatim off the ticket): It was off the main street (Chapel) and was well against the wall of the building with room for people to pass on the outside, so what the hell is the story here! I've always been under the impression that parking on the footpath was ok in Melbourne (Vic), and my google foo finds me vicroads doco that says it's ok. Is it possible that there is some council bylaw that exists (can't seem to find it though) that prevents me from doing so in South Yarra? Anybody?
