A woman was beaten with a fine for parking on her own lawn.
The unnamed resident shared a photo of the $ 263 fine she received after leaving her car on the nature strip in front of her house on Racecourse Road in Orange, west of NSW.
# Apparently it is not our lawn … it belongs to the municipality! Maybe we should send them a bill for the last 15 years to mow it & # 39 ;, she wrote.
She shared a $ 263 fine she received after leaving her car on the nature strip in front of her house on Racecourse Road in Orange, west of NSW
The card stated that the woman was placed on a path / strip in a built-up area & # 39 ;.
She estimated that she had spent $ 10 a month mowing the grass that the municipality is now claiming as their own, and said they owed her $ 1,800.
Social media users quickly labeled the fine & # 39; incredible & # 39 ;.
The reason for the fine mentioned on the ticket said that the woman had stopped & # 39; on a path / strip in a built-up area & # 39;
& # 39; What a bunch of nonsense … that's damn ridiculous, & # 39; others wrote by post.
But others argued that the law was well documented and that the council was right to fine it.
Orange City Council business and community relations manager Nick Redmond told Yahoo News they expect landowners to have a general idea of where private ownership ended and the public started.
He said the municipality appreciated the residents to mow the front area, but finally said the laws are clear that the natural strip is the property of the municipality.
