Brisbane Parking .org was founded by a group of concerned local residents who believe that people who live in residential areas should have the right, within reason, to safely park their vehicles outside their own homes without harassment from Brisbane City Council or any other government body.
While we strongly support public transport and believe in developing a cleaner, greener Brisbane where possible, we also acknowledge people still need to use private cars. In particular Brisbane Parking .org believes enforcement of parking regulations should be on the grounds of fairness and safety – not a revenue raising exercise with preset “targets” simply because Brisbane City Council is too scared to raise rates.
Originally founded in Teneriffe/New Farm, we hope to hear from residents from other suburbs who want to tell their parking ticket horror stories.
Update – Jan 18, 2012: OMG! We’re like, totally famous! Ok, maybe not Kim Kardashian famous, but a little bit famous nonetheless. Check out Brisbane Parking .org’s media coverage on our stories and links page. Special thanks to Tony Moore at the Brisbane Times for getting the ball rolling.
