This message is supported by the 'no-tier'* of government, businesses called city councils.
An excerpt from a Victorian city council's website states how dangerous it is to park your soon to be self driving vehicle on a nature strip, as shown in illustration below:
The city council states that:
Vehicles parked on the nature strip or footpath:
- cause major damage to public infrastructure, both above and below the ground
- may prevent emergency personnel from accessing key infrastructure such as water, sewage, gas, telecommunications and drainage pipes
- can pose increased safety risks for pedestrians as they are less visible to oncoming cars
- restrict access for wheelchair and pram users
The short answer is of course not.
In layman's terms, the books have been 'cooked' or the law has been 'rigged' so that the authorities or rather persons unlawfully engaged in issuing fines are allowed to damage infrastructure.
If you have been issued an unlawful fine for allegedly traveling above a posted speed limit, we suggest it to be contested in the administrative courts in your state.
In Victoria the business known as Victoria Police (ABN: 63 446 481 493) issue fines unlawfully.
* - government 'advertising' states that 'local government' or city councils are the third tier of government, which is false.
