It angers me to read that Byron Shire Council is not giving grace to unsuspecting ‘offenders’ of this ugly parking system dumped upon us here in the bay, when the victim (letter ‘Parking Hell’, Pat Janda, January 20) was actually exempt from any parking fees to begin with.
To further the issue, after reading Kol Dimond’s letter (Nanny State, same issue) I generally agree with him that we are indeed being trampled by over-governing and legislation.
Tis a shame. I believe Winston Churchill once proclaimed ‘Too much over-regulation shall only lead to revolt.’
These new hefty fines for ‘free-haired’ cyclists may well trigger ‘offenders’ to abscond from the law enforcers.
Beware skate-boarders; the way things are going, you’ll be wearing helmets next.
