Student parking creates possible hazard
IT is about time that the relevant local authority or government department took responsibility for policing the parking in the area of Australia II Drive and around the Department of Environment and Conservation’s headquarters.
Students park both randomly and dangerously, blocking access to the Matilda Bay Boat ramp and the two yacht clubs in the area.
I would rather not think of the consequences of a boat catching fire in one of the marinas, and the flames spreading to other vessels and, because of the students parking inconsiderately, the fire brigade was unable to gain access to the blaze. Will it take a scenario such as this to get this problem addressed? I hope not. I find it sad that given the quality education our societies' future leaders in medicine, law, politics and engineering receive at UWA, they are not taught civic responsibility.
However, shouldn't that task have been the responsibility of their parents? Dave Tierney, City Beach.
