public service announcement

for anyone who ever has to pick up or drop off passengers at QUT Garden's Point... you may have gathered, between the profanity of a certain post on my blog, that i am not entirely happy with the traffic and parking situation at QUT. particularly as it led to a $60 fine for stopping safely to drop my girlfriend off, when a truck blocked the only setdown zone.

i have since been informed (by QUT parking people) that if the setdown zone is full, you can pull around to the security gatehouse and ask them to let you in to drop off your passenger(s).

i am yet to test the theory; but damnit, i'm not going to stop in that nice safe closed-off sliplane if it means a fine. i'll take up the security guard's time, since that's the way it's gotta be. hurrah for the Brisbane City Council's parking nazis...

why am i telling you such earth-shattering stuff? well it's just to share the love. nah, i just don't want anyone else to have to shell out for some parking guy to fill their quota on easy marks.
