Parking around where I live sucks – finding it first and then the amount you have to pay for it. Council is always banging on about us supporting and reviving the town centre which has gradually died over the past few years, mainly due to the development of two large malls in the suburbs. But why would you pay $8.00 for 2 hours parking in town when you can get 3 hours free at the mall.
And believe me they employ some pretty nasty parking officers as well. Most people I know have a story about a smart arse parking officer booking them even though they see the car owner running back to the car only a couple of minutes over the time limit.
