Discretion for parking wardens

Petition details

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.

Background information

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.
