Bloody parking meters

I've been doing a bit of work in South Melbourne this week, where parking is a total pain in the arse.

All street parking has been restricted to one hour pretty much everywhere.

To make matters worse, the money grabbing council has also installed dozens of bright shiny new parking meters.

So now not only do I have to walk down two flights of stairs to move my car every hour of the day, I also have to pay for the privilege.

They did something similar in Madrid last year, resulting in this sticker campaign against the mayor.

Don't know how much impact it had, but I bet people sure felt better inserting coins where the sun never shines.
