The Auckland City Council Pleads With More Motorists To Park Illegally...

The Super City of Auckland is in a sorry financial state and Jaffa Mayor Brown has gone public saying
the council will have to consider raising the amount of fines to cover expenses.
Even though the council gave out more than ten million dollars worth of fines last year,
the problem is that with parking infringement fines at a measly $12 the rate of revenue is just not enough to cover costs.
There are some councilors who haven't had an all expenses paid overseas holiday for months.
And making matters worse, some of the city's parking wardens are insisting on being polite, kind and considerate
and giving errant motorists a ten minute time window to top up their meters.
