Parking Scammers

Today, Traffic Security was in the campus carpark. They were writing a ticket for someone who’d left without paying late last week, right in front of the Officer. Intelligent!

I asked what I could do about the ones who follow me out without paying. They suggest going forward and stopping far enough forward so that the barrier can come down safely and the car is trapped behind you because of the traffic islands on either side, then get out and take the licence plate number. I don’t think so! I’m not facing a young man!! They then suggested I lock my windows and doors and get the licence plate through the rear window. You also have to note the date, time, sex of the offender and hair colour. Aha! That explains the hoodies being pulled up.

Once a report is received an instant fine of $50 is issued. Ouch! All for saving $2 a day.

Let’s see if I’m brave enough to dob them in next time it happens!
