More & more Local residents are taking to social media, in what some are describing as some of the worst parking seen in recent years.

A number of parking related social media pages have sprung up in recent months, highlights cars that park over the lines, in incorrect bays, such as motorcycle bays, and also the growing trend of parking in the wrong directions.

Mid-Western Regional Council is responsible for the policing of parking within the shire, and have told our newsroom that Council’s Law Enforcement Officers regularly undertake patrols of parking compliance within the Mudgee CBD.

When we asked what possible consequences motorists could face, they responded saying that Parking in accordance with the signage and within marked bays is required to be compliant. Officers are authorised to issued fines for exceeding parking time limits, not parking within the lines and parking incorrectly such as nose in.

Penalties start from $112.
