Notional Clearway

Clearways in Melbourne make news this week with a tow truck driver failing to notice a sleeping occupant in a vehicle they towed for parking illegally, but away from the highly publicised tow away areas clearways are anything but.

Theoretically a clearway should be empty of any stopped vehicles with the 3 penalty units of fine at $455 being more expensive than the cost of releasing a towed vehicle. But here is a more typical clearway in operation, which doubles as a bicycle lane.

Noting that these photos were taken at 7:15am well into the operation of the clearway with no rushed drivers in sight. Again in reverse view showing the bumper to bumper parking, entirely filling what should be a completely clear roadway.

The unafraid population of Melbourne continue to ignore laws, without enforcement its all just window dressing.
