That's Australia mate! I parked in a loading zone in Melbourne while I unloaded luggage for two ladies I was traveling with and was hit with $120 citation. They watched me unload luggage while they wrote the ticket!!! I told the meter maids that I was there doing work for their government and they could write whatever tickets they wanted, I had no intentions of moving the vehicle until it was unloaded. You would think two dames would be sympathetic to someone being chivalrous, but apparently that wasn't the case.That is an excessive fine for such a minor offense.
NZ is not far away from doing so. It is currently "war on tourist season" but wait till we get back to "War on speeders season"- the media is so annoying when it comes to both topics.What is the logic in making RD's illegal? Just want to know how stupid law enforcement and the so called powers to be in so called democratic are. Every time I try to show respect they disappoint me either through greed or stupidity. Probably going to get worse as the Snowflake generation filters into the hall of unchecked power.
