Team up with a buddy and share your thinking and strategies as you attempt to solve this problem.

Parking Problems!

This is a quote from a story that ran recently in the Howick and Pakuranga Times newspaper. 

 It was a shock when in January a $150 fine turned up in the mail for stopping for 46 seconds in a mobility space.
“It’s ridiculous. It’s the most expensive 46 seconds I can imagine,” Jessie says. 

At this rate, how much did it cost for every second she was parked in this mobility space?
At this same rate, how much would it have cost her to listen to your favourite song while parked in this forbidden space?

To see the entire story, follow the link below.
