On 11th March, a certain law-abiding (yes, they do exist!) Aussie was parking in the City of Melbourne and received a ticket – almost in flagrante, to coin a phrase.

He wrote to the Council as follows – this is true – it has not been made up.



Amazingly, the City of Melbourne withdrew the ticket.

I wish the same had happened to me in Stonington a year ago. Parking behind Coles/Priceline/Dan Murphy just off Chapel Street Prahran I received a $40 ticket for “placing my parking verification receipt on the right hand side of my dashboard” – NOT the left hand side. Needless to say after numerous letters and telephone calls, they would not withdraw the ticket.
