Fine/Demerit Points for Driving wrong way in a CARPARK!?
Hey Guys, Id like your opinions,
I was driving down a busy street in Melbourne tonight and wanted to turn around to go home. Not being all too experienced with city driving, I went into a safeway carpark to turn the car around instead of doing a U turn in the busy street (which probably would have been unsafe anyways).
So, Ive turned into this carpark and driven about 50m down to the next driveway out of the park. Out of nowhere comes this motorbike copper who blocks me off, asks for my liscence and slaps me a $105 Fine and 2 demerit points..... 'Why?' I ask politely? Oh Because I failed to obey (see!) the shitty faded one way arrows on the carpark ashphalt (no eye level signage). I didnt know the area, was flustered by the traffic, and wanted to turn around in an almost empty carpark.
I was also EXTREMELY polite to the jodphur jumpsiut wearing faggot (and I hope you're reading this arsehole), and my excuse was genuine; I did not see any one way signage in the carpark at all, or the faded arrows.
In a intmidating traffic situation, I was flustered and the LAST thing I expected taking refuge in an empty carpark was for it to be one way!!!! I just wanted to get out of there! and this rude arrogant crotch rocket wanker Fines me, treats me like a f#ckwit, and takes away two demerit points!!! Mate I hate you and I hope youre despised by your colleagues as much as you're despised by the honest unfortunate people like me you get such a kick out of preying on.
Guys, I didnt know they could do this type of thing in a carpark..... if i was going wrong way on a public road then fine, I'm a dickhead who deserves to be fined. But in an almost empty Safeway carpark on Good Friday (where Safeway is closed anyway)? I dont think its fair given the siutation I was in
I'm really dissapointed, sad, and frustrated. I'm not an unsafe driver and I feel violated, I dont care about the money, i can afford that money 5 times over. But its the 2 demerit points for this that really piss me off. And theres nothing I can do......
