Councils to waive parking fines for health care workers

3aw mornings

Councils across Melbourne will be waiving parking costs for health care workers who need to park near a hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rebecca, who has been working tirelessly at The Austin hospital, was fined for parking too long on March 11.

The nurse was again fined by Banyule Council last Thursday while working a 7am to 4.30pm shift with no breaks.

“I wasn’t able to leave the ward to physically move my car,” she said.
