Car Park Vandals at Work Again
What you see below is the wanton damaged caused to a vehicle
parked at Church Point Car Park, in the last 10 days.
determined efforts gone to by the thugs who damage this car
have rendered it a complete rightoff. All of you know what
of that are to an owner and the inconvenience, and costs that
it causes. It is understood that at least two other vehicles,
possibly more have been either
damaged and or had parts stolen during this same period.
What happened to these cars could have happened
to anyones car, and it may well be
someones car in the future. How many cars have been damaged
and vandelised in this carpark in the last few years and at
cost to this community? This car park is a playground for
these sorts of people, especially as they can quickly see there is
little or no consequences to their actions.
police service is not setup to deal with long term monitoring of places
like the car park. Apparently we do not have enough crime in the area
to warrant additional policing anyway! Council do
responsibility for security in the
car parks, yet time and time again we see and hear of cars trashed at
Point. How much worse does it need to get before anything is done to
stop this unacceptable behaviour and what is to be
we want it stopped? It appears that if we want our
assets to be secure
then we as a community have to be prepared to organise security
and be prepared to cover the costs ourselves.
One idea is to have the car park patrolled. Would car owners consider
paying for a qualified patrolman to patrol the car park
from 11pm to 6am each night, 365 days of the
Not random patrols, but someone at the car park all the time between
the hours of 11pm and 6am every night. This would cost 250 car
owners each approximately $32 a month ($390 each per year) to have
service at Church Point Car Park. Would vehicle owners
consider this, or is this too much pay? What are you prepare to pay?
Do you have any thoughts or ideas about this? We would really
like to know how the community feels about this issue and
would appreciate all your comments.
