You will now be fined on a private land cark park of Woolworths Brunswick

It is amazing how corporations work with blistering speed with regards to extorting cash from the general population.

Readers of the blog 'Corporate Australia' may have noted that in early May 2017 we posted an article of how the ticket machines for parking your vehicle at Woolworths on Albert St Brunswick, Victoria have been removed.

See blog post from 5th of May 2017;

We have recently been informed that the ticket machines are back, but this time with a twist.

The claim now is that the land you park your automobile on is now "PRIVATE LAND".

Therefore if you overstay your time you will be fined... on PRIVATE LAND.

So from the 5th of May 2017 (or earlier) until about the middle of July, the land has become "PRIVATE".

We would LOVE to see the records for that transaction.

Please note that we do not condone the payment of any fine.

We do not recommend supporting Woolworths at Albert St, Brunswick for your shopping needs, where you are required to purchase a parking ticket on "PRIVATE LAND".


Please note:

No legal authority to issue fines

Only the government can issue 'fines' so if a private car park describes the ticket as a 'fine' this is arguably misleading. Payment notices that are issued that look like fines may also be misleading.
