The top 10 streets you're most likely to get a parking ticket

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

More than 1.5 million parking tickets have been issued to Aucklanders in the past three years - and most of them were down to pure laziness, Auckland Transport says.

In 2018, AT dished out 503,891 parking tickets. That was less than in 2017 when 510,374 were issued, but 8,229 more than the amount issued in 2016.

Here's the top 10 streets where you're most likely to get hit with a parking ticket:

1. Princes St, CBD
2. Jellicoe St car park, CBD
3. Ocean View Rd, Waiheke Island
4. Federal St, CBD
5. The Māngere Town Centre
6. Queen St, CBD
7. Hobson St, CBD
8. Union St, CBD
9. Orakau Rd, Māngere
10. Customs St West, CBD.

Have you been caught out at one of these locations? Was it a genuine mistake, or were you being lazy?

Lace up for summer fun

Resene ColorShop Westgate

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
