Cars creating concern
Posted at 3:51pm Tuesday 04 Jun, 2019
Auckland Transport (AT) is sticking to its guns when it comes to continued complaints about the number of cars for sale that are parked along Whangaparaoa Road near the Peninsula Club retirement village.
Raising the issue again, Hibiscus Matters pointed out that AT's own Traffic Bylaw, 2012, states that “A person must not stop, stand or park a vehicle on any road or parking place for the purpose of advertising a good or service, or for offering the vehicle for sale unless the vehicle is being used for day to day travel”.
However, an AT spokesperson responded that the people who park there to sell their cars are doing nothing illegal and cannot be prosecuted, although some have been ticketed for issues such as expired WOFs.
