I ask that City Council give discretion to parking wardens and training on safety mitigations they can employ.
Rather than ticketing vehicles, parking in a wide centre median, particularly where there is plenty of room and no realistic safety concerns; give parking wardens the ability to exercise judgement and discretion.
Keep our communities welcoming so they can remain vibrant and connected.
Today parking wardens ticketed vehicles in a wide median strip saying they had no discretion over who they fined. The parking pressure was due to a rare combination of events and weather.
Photos show the majority of cars caused no obstruction. Cones and an announcement at the event would resolve safety issues.
As a community we appear un-welcoming, focused on the rules instead of the people and the vibrancy of the community.
