Ticket is­sued on a cold, wet win­ter’s night

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

YOUR front-page re­port in the Septem­ber 1 edi­tion about the tac­tics of Wil­son Park­ing brought back mem­o­ries of a wet, win­ter Tues­day night about two years ago when my wife and I joined friends for din­ner at a Su­bi­aco res­tau­rant.

I pur­chased a three-hour ticket in the Sed­don Street car park.

Af­ter a pleas­ant evening, we re­turned to the car park around 10pm to find a park­ing ticket for be­ing 15 min­utes over­due.

Our car was the only ve­hi­cle in that windswept car park.

One can only imag­ine a zeal­ous Wil­son in­spec­tor hang­ing around a de­serted car park in the cold and wet for an hour or two watch­ing the clock just to ticket the only car present.

Since then I have steered clear of vis­it­ing Su­bi­aco as much as pos­si­ble. Ian Ber­nadt, Swan­bourne.
