In Adelaide, South Australia the conquil spent over $50,000 for 59 wheel stops. They were fitted last week in angled parks adjacent to outdoor dining. Unfortunately, 21 of them were installed more than a metre away from the kerb, leaving the parked cars disrupting traffic.
“The plan was to also allow enough room for people to walk in front of a parked vehicle,” a spokesman said to The Advertiser.
The mistake is said to have been caused by contractor error, and has now been fixed.
