Point Peron Boat Ramp- Rockingham Ranger -Again!

 Just a heads up- Rockingham Rangers were "red hot" with Parking Infringement Fines today.

Not only on the so called grassed area's inside the Parking Area,but also out on Point Peron Road.

Heaps of cars with Infringements- Really not in the Xmas spirit!

  And guess what- The Council

Sat, 2018-12-22 21:23

  And guess what- The Council has increased the Parking Fines to $100.00.

Merry Christmas to one and all from the Rockingham Council!


 "The City of Rockingham also passed a Local Parking Law for parking fines to increase from $65 to $100.

The $65 parking penalty was made in 2006. The $65 penalty was now considered too low to act as a deterrent to parking illegally and was disproportional to the costs of collection by the City if unpaid.

The increase to a $100 modified penalty was in line with other local governments."

You blokes don’t have to pay a launching fee so you’re still in front over a cray season even if you cop a fine.

 There's obviously a need for more parking down there, locals need to lobby for this so the council will have  to get off their arse and do something to alleviate the problem. After all you guys are the ratepayers.

 We had this problem

Sun, 2018-12-23 16:22

 We had this problem yesterday with the car park full. Had to park on the road had to park on the road luckily there was no fines. But 100 percent need to make an overflow car park somewhere down there to prevent this problem.

And for stupid people not even with a boat parked in the rigging zone where it clearly says no parking rigging only

 The Ranger ?? ( a young Lady still wet behind the ears ) was there today around 930am.


I couldnt help myself and had to have a quiet word with her.


She said she was only handing out warnings today.


Oh and she said she loves her job.

Glad the beach ramp in

Mon, 2018-12-24 06:58

Glad the beach ramp in Warnbro is back open. Rocked up with 4 cars side by side backing into the water. Carpark full and the roads were empty trailer to bonnet with cars one after the other.

No queue, no agro, no parking fines.

$100 parking fines....

Mon, 2018-12-24 07:35

 ...obviously jerking the land rates up hasn't been enough to cover the mayor's trips to the dolphin clubbing sister city in Japan.

 Rockingham Rangers- Red hot

Sat, 2019-02-23 10:31

 Rockingham Rangers- At it again. Fantastic boating weather,Rottness swim on,and you can guess where the Rangers were this morning. Putting Parking Infringement on windscreens at the Point Peron Boat Ramp.

Geez they must be getting some revenue dollars from this area.  I did a quick count,at least 60 vehicle's with Infringments.

No doubt they will be there again tomorrow!

 Yep , theres no excuse for not providing enough parking at these public places then fineing people , when theres no spots left .( ironiccly there the only ones that

  can approve more bays)

 Oh over the years we have heard all the sayings , we are just doing a job , we cant have people parking where they like etc etc

 Total petty , money grubbing crap.

 We live in one of the most affelent countrys , with vast amounts of land , and we get fined for parking on a unused verge for a few hours ,

   by the very mob that only exsist cause we pay rates.

 Well they can take my rates and retire there parking officers , give there utes to charity and grab a life while there at it.

 HAHA , i dont even live there and im pissed off.

Where do they park when giving out the tickets...?

Sat, 2019-02-23 17:02

 I would assume it is just like a police car (not at a job). They would have to be parked legally to be handing out tickets...? Pity no one got a picture of where they parked.

I was down there on Sat, luckily got there early. Couldn't believe the amount of parking fines handed out. Would be a lot of unhappy boaters after a great day on the water.

I did notice that none of the cars parked out on the main road had a ticket? maybe they just hadn't got to them yet.

They want people to come to rocky

Mon, 2019-02-25 09:02

Come and enjoy a day on the water at Rockingham, and while you are doing that we will give you a nice big fine because we haven’t got the facilities to cater for you and your boat.

Bloody great

Other day in rocko. No parking and everyone parked up on verge. Always been like that . Never see any people getting parking tickets there. Boaties always cop it . Overflow on palm beach gets opened when they get there.? During the week sometimes it doesn’t get unlocked.

Not that often when the wind

Mon, 2019-02-25 20:37

Not that often when the wind isn’t howling on a weekend so of course there’s going to be a lot of people taking their boat out. So you head to the ramp launch the boat and find there’s no parking. What are you supposed to do turn around and retrieve your boat and go home? Cancel the family boating day?

 Quite a populated area down

Mon, 2019-02-25 21:14

 Quite a populated area down there these days, you'd think they could set up an overflow carpark on summer weekends. Bunch of money grabbing flogs. I copped a ticked the other day when I'd actually paid for a ticket, had it displayed in the middle of my Ranger dash but because the fuckstick couldn't make an effort to have a propper look he fined me. Currently in their disputes department with a photo from me clearly showing my valid parking ticket on the dash.
