Fremantles Councils, Anti-car Message, Out of Touch with Community Reality??

car mrk2car mark1

I went out to run some errands this morning and dropped in at the Fremantles Growers Green Market, great crowd though it looked like it might rain, the place was pumping.

What was surprising is the amount of cars at the event, not that its bad but the parking areas where packed, and looking like they where quite well run. Clearly an organizer who understands that supplying parking is crucial as there where attendees in high-vis giving directions and nicely controlling the steady flow of traffic.


Then I had to see someone in Nth Freo so popped by Leighton to see how the carnival was running, nippers had their day between Port and Leighton beach. Again the message council is spruking on car use, has little effect on few, the beach south of port to out past cables was packed, every last space was packed with cars and thousands have been enjoying our great beaches.

So the question begs when will reality hit home to council, cars are an everyday part of the average West Australians life, to think any different, just flies in the face of reality.

All the comparisons with Europe, Canada etc, on car use, concrete, parking, made me do a quick google search as i remember a story from Sth beach (Miami USA) some years back about a shopping centre and its car park, good old google 20 seconds in  I found it, so another car installment coming soon, to keep a little balance and reality to the discussion.
