Trees good, parking bad

I live within the boundaries of Maribyrnong Council in an area that fulfils my definition of "inner city" (it has back alleys and many houses don't have driveways). So, parking is a bit of an issue, while a certain queueing politeness is needed while driving--quite a lot of the streets only allow one car to pass at a time.

The Council has clearly decided we need more trees, less parking and more traffic hazards, installing concreted squares with planted saplings on lots of the local back streets.
Traffic hazards with helpful light reflectors added (picture taken on a weekday).
So, things will be greener, but more frustrating.

  1. The correct headline would be …

    "Trees good, cars bad"

    It is activist councils deciding that personal freedom represented by the mobility that cars provide is a bad thing.
