Roads Hogged

A ROAD hog is one of those VIP motorists who must attempt to park their car as close as possible to the doctor’s clinic in Mahogany Drive, Halls Head, to block all other traffic in the street and frustrate others.

Twenty other parking bays are available only 20 metres down the road near the soccer stadium that has more parking for another 80 vehicles.

Actually, most of the fun begins when the children arrive at Halls Head Primary School where mums must park near the corner of Baronia Close to make life difficult for the motorists trying to drive down Mahogany Drive.

That becomes a dangerous one-way line of traffic – just like that bungled lunacy in Davey Street, Mandurah that now has parking both sides of a road that is not wide enough for traffic in both directions at the same time.
