The ‘Fair Parking’ campaign is beginning to show results with a reduction in the number of parking violations in some areas in Murrindindi.
Infrastructure Portfolio Councillor, Eric Lording said that Marysville has been a standout in Murrindindi.
“Council officers were delighted to see a huge improvement in parking compliance in Marysville, and only had to issue one Penalty Infringement Notice during their last patrol there”.
“Unfortunately, on a recent parking patrol in Yea, Council officers issued seven Penalty Notices and three Official Warnings to drivers who didn’t follow parking rules. Sadly some drivers are still choosing to park illegally even though there might be legitimate parking spots available not far away,” Lording said.
“It is especially disappointing to see some drivers who have received Official Warnings for parking infringements in the past continuing to commit parking offences.
“I would like to thank all those road users who make the extra effort to park fairly and with consideration for others. Safety considerations and access to convenient parking for those who need it really has to be the top priority for anyone looking for a park. While finding a convenient parking spot is nice, parking just that little bit further away can also be a great way to get some extra exercise.
“Council officers will continue to carry out parking patrols throughout Spring to ensure road users are doing the right thing.
“If you have any questions about parking rules in Victoria, check out VicRoads’ website. They have a fantastic summary of types of parking, parking lines and zones and other stopping and parking rules,” Lording said.
