Upon closer inspection, note the only thing keeping this parking sign from plummeting over the railing into motorway carnage, are three wire twisties, with the top one having already come off.

Now in South Auckland, the motorway over-bridges have massive barriers to prevent teenagers from throwing objects onto the motorway for fun. (They think differently down there, I guess).

Yet, in central Auckland, the Auckland City Council seems to have thrown caution to the wind. Which is ironic given the amount bureaucracy, paperwork, and inspections home-owners have to go through to just build a 1.2m wall in their backyard, and yet wire-twisties are deemed acceptable for attaching parking signs to motorway over-bridges…
