WHAT a good thing it would be to crack down on the misuse of Acrod parking bays.
Maybe the only people who care are those with loved ones, like my mother, with a genuine need for priority parking.
I suppose there could be good reasons to see a tradies’ ute in such a bay outside Bunnings, or a car in a blue bay at the golf course for several hours.
My imagination cannot stretch far enough to figure how a tradie could get an Acrod permit.
As for the golf course, I hate to think that able-bodied golfers are using somebody else’s permit when they should know better.
Worse still is the thought they might do the same thing elsewhere.
Could all this be a manifestation of a selfish society that has stopped caring about anybody else?
Sadly, I fear so. PETER MOXHAM, Waterford.
The voice suggested the caller was an Asian male who spoke good English. Towards the end of the message, we were told to phone an 02 area code number.
Shortly after listening to the message, I phoned the ATO (there are two numbers 1800 060 062 and 1800 199 010) and gave details of the message and the phone number.
The ATO staff member said that the information would be passed to the ATO’s investigators for followup.
Later that afternoon, we received another call from the same Asian male ranting on as to why we had not responded. It appeared that the call was being monitored because another voice interrupted him and cut off the call.
I suggest that reporting these calls directly to the ATO is more effective as it avoids going through a third party who then has to inform the ATO. Name and address supplied. and with all the new developments why have we not implemented such laws here?
Even take it one step further and make them all have solar panels as well?
Not only would it boost local companies in supplying these products but may also drive the prices down, which in turn make them more affordable for existing properties, making us all that little bit more environmentally friendly. It is food for thought. Why does WA always have to be so far behind the eastern states in so many ways? TREVOR EDNIE, Merriwa.
