Keeping an eye on parking

 

 

Infringement notices for parking, rego and expired wof’s were dished out by the truck load.

Waiuku residents may want to keep a close eye on their letter boxes this week, as the township was treated to not one, not two, but three parking wardens from Wednesday through to Friday last week.
The wardens were notified about Waiuku’s car parking issues by complaints from the public, and they handed out many tickets for not just time infringements, but for overdue Warrant of Fitness, expired registrations and even parking the wrong way on streets.
Since running the story two weeks ago about local business owners being frustrated that some retailers and their staff were using the main street as their personal car park, we received information that some companies still did not take heed to what was being said.
Their vehicles were still parked on the street.
While local board chair, Andy Baker, suggested that as a town, we try to address the issues internally, however, this obviously isn’t going to be the case.
Let us now hope that a lesson has been learnt for those who have abused the parking restrictions, albeit, it will be a rather expensive one for some, and keep the parks along the bustling streets of Waiuku free for customers and visitors to the township.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
