Disputing a parking fine, Melbournian style!

April 7th, 2010 2 comments

Back when I was at Uni, a close friend (who drove a Toyota Supra) and I used to attract parking inspectors like magnets (needless to say, our girlfriends were not impressed!). There was very little we could do too, some of the inspectors would “camp out” and await our batch of cars (we had a system!) as we swapped each others cars in the hopes we don’t get fined, then BAM! fined. Anyway, those days are long gone. Most of the areas we parked are now permit zoned but these days, inspectors seem to be far more aggressive with fines with very little leniency.

Here’s a letter sent to the City of Melbourne disputing a fine, thought this was hilarious – and encouraging.

Anyway, that was win for you and me kiddo. For the helpless people that need hope and encouragement, we may not win the war, but we’ve won the battle.

Add that to the collection of Aussie funnies! I wonder if there’s a “Parking Inspectors” forum like the OzLiberty forums, they all get together and marvel at each others fines – time to troll!
