Brisbane parkers put on notice

Brisbane motorists who illegally park in school zones have been warned it is only a matter of time until they were caught, after Council doubled its number of enforcement officers.

Brisbane Times has reported Brisbane City Council would target bad drivers at 60 schools, which have been nominated as needing more action, in a bid to improve safety.

“Council has more than doubled the number of enforcement officers patrolling during school times, in response to the large number of requests that council receives from schools and the community,” BCC infrastructure chairman Amanda Cooper said.

“Council will have 10 high-visibility vehicles and officers regularly visiting these school zones to issue warnings and fines to drivers who are failing to park safely during school times.”

Motorists caught over-staying the allotted time or double parking could expect a fine of $94, while those who parked on a yellow line or in a no stopping zone would be stung $126.
