Parking wardens were issuing $40 fines to all motorbikes and scooters in Central Wellington, other than those parked in designated motorbike parking areas or on private land.
So what has happened over the last year or so?
Not much, if anything at all.
Motorbike parking congestion in Wellington is worse than ever.
Parking wardens are once again issuing fines to all "illegally" parked bikes - including bikes that are discretely parked so that they do not impede pedestrian flow.
Commuters who ride bikes into town need to be able to safely park their machines all the day. The designated bike parks in Central Wellington are over flowing. Where are the excess to go?
Wellington City Council's response to its lack of provision of parking for motorbikes is to issue parking fines.
This makes a complete joke of the Mayor's vision for Wellington to be a carbon neutral city.
