Letter— Pukekohe Main Street Parking

It’s pretty impossible to find main street parking at any time of day now, and people often swoop across traffic to steal a park on the “other side”. But if you only want to post a letter, it’s worth a quick look in case the ten minute parking outside the postbox is free. At midday Wednesday, a black Mazda stopped in the middle of the main street and the emergency flashers were put on. The driver got out of his car and joined the queue at the ATM at Paper Plus, leaving the car blocking traffic. He either ignored or gesticulated at other protesting drivers, finally withdrew his cash, got back into the car, one last gesture to waiting motorists and off he went. He knew nothing would ever be done about it.

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.
