Wait until school starts up again…Coolum Primary is a nightmare for parking. 120 preppies that need to be walked in/out of class and no where near enough parking. Park on the grass and you get fined.
They appeared last year on cross country day when half of the car parks were blocked off surprise surprise.
When questioned they said we should park in the back streets…yep long walks for 4-5 year olds….not to mention clogging up local streets and causing chaos there as well.
I’ve seen 3-4 council cars parked together on the same grass having smoko breaks regularly.
There is heaps of room for the council to make more parks but they won’t.
Coolum is not the only school with this parking mess.
My daughter just rang me at work to tell me she got fined for parking on our front lawn. She was washing the car and left to go inside make a snack for her little sister. Came out and there was a ticket. “How can I get fined for parking on our lawn Mum?” She said she anywhere near the curb, so people could easily pass. The walking footpath is on the opposite side of the road. In 10years I have never fined for parking my car and washing on our lawn.
I will contest this. I not be paying a cent to the thieving mongrels.
Our work vehicle is currently LEGALLY parked on the road, and we have a neighbour who’s verbally abusive, yelling ‘move ur f##ken car’, and similar.
I’ve contacted Council asking to come see how we are parked and advise us of an alternative option. They said they’d come see us over the next couple of days. Months later, haven’t seen them
I just had two lady parking officers come to the home i live at in Gardak St Maroochydore as they are warning all residents in the street and handing out info (unfortunately they’d run out) of parking laws as someone in the street had made a complaint about where someone else was parked.
I Had a bit of a chat to them and they seemed quite aware that they knew they had to start giving more warnings but like everything else you have to wonder how concerned they really are about making life miserable for others at this time of the year…
sadly there are a hell of a lot of whingers in the coast to who love to dob people in..
I’m worried about that too, our car is too long for the driveway it only just passes our boundary and there are two drains near us on either sure so no one can walk there so everyday I hope our car won’t get a fine, it cab still can be easily walked around I have to reverse it in because we can’t see past the trees the council put on their land at the front and people park on the other side of the road opposite the driveway.
Can’t have the car/van in the garage there’s no room and even if there was I have 4 kids I can’t get out of the car in the garage and I’m not driving in a leaving them inside when the youngest is 16 months I’d never forgive myself if I hit him. I also need to be able to get out quick because my child has an autoimmune disease and gets sick quick and my other child is asthmatic.
Random thought: are they going to be handing out fines at Christmas/NYE events that we all attend which are put on by Council???
It’s really making me reconsider attending anything as I’ve already been slugged $94 😡 that much less for food on my table this week 😔
I got mine late November, applied to have it withdrawn only to be quoted parking by-laws … even though in a narrow u-shape street at birtinya blocked at BOTH sides with padlocked steel gates and already filled with tradies and trucks – too bad pay up 😔
We agree that this can be the wisest way to park when operating in badly planned, narrow street layouts…But what this council vehicle is doing is what we are being targeted for!

soooooo it’s illegal to half block an entrance to a car park like this. I looked he had no ticket on his windscreen. Continue reading “SCC Vehicle Blocking a carpark entrance”

Now we are not saying that this vehcile should not be parked like this…often it is the safest choice!
But it cannot be one rule for us and one rule for them, common sense needs to prevail!
