Park­ing night­mare

Re: Park­ing ( Auck­land City Har­bour News, De­cem­ber 13).

I live in Liv­ing­stone St, West­mere. This street is a night­mare for park­ing.

Not only do we get ‘‘out­siders’’ us­ing the street for park­ing when they com­mute on buses but we the res­i­dents have to nav­i­gate the street to exit.

Most of us park with our two pas­sen­ger side wheels on the pave­ment. Of course, in the eyes of the Auck­land Coun­cil, we are break­ing the law.

In fact, last Thurs­day I got a park­ing ticket for $40, even though I saw an­other 10 ve­hi­cles parked the same with­out tick­ets.

I mainly do this be­cause in the last six months I have had my driver’s side mir­ror taken out and smashed, usu­ally by rub­bish trucks on a Tues­day around 7am.

Of course com­plain­ing to the coun­cil did no good be­cause I didn’t ac­tu­ally see it hap­pen.

We as res­i­dents have re­peat­edly asked Auck­land Coun­cil to ei­ther make Liv­ing­stone St one way or park­ing on one side only.

What is the an­swer I won­der. Do any of your read­ers know the so­lu­tion?
