City parking fee rise
July 1, 2010

MELBOURNE City Council will, from today, begin rolling out new $4 per hour parking charges, which will apply in most instances until after 7.30pm.

The time extension will net about $1.5 million extra in fees for the city council's coffers.

Also going up are the government's fine for not carrying a valid transport ticket, to $176, and for having your feet on the seats in a train, tram or bus, also to $176.

More than 12,000 people were fined in the financial year just ended for having their feet on seats on public transport, and at least 134,000 were fined for not having a valid ticket, according to the Department of Transport.

I loathe parking fees and parking fines, especially unexpected ones (obvious that i recently got a parking fine? 8:30 at night ...damn signs are illegible at 8:30 of the post meridian).

I have no idea what is going on with me and parking fines but i parked at the St Kilda sea baths just a few hours ago and got a ticket while going to buy a parking ticket not twenty metres away... i couldn't help fuming at the inspector and the inspector said that i should thank him 'cause he said he would remove the ticket from the system.

Yeah I have also read somewhere that they are paying a hefty price to drive to the CBD with a new survey revealing Melbourne ranks third most expensive for city parking in the world.
