More cases of the people enforcing parking rules following the 'do as I say, not as I do' rule have emerged.
A Takapuna resident who lives on a narrow street was given a $40 ticket for parking on a footpath.
The next day her father took a photo of an Auckland Council car parked in the same manner.
Jordyn Hesketh has lived on Northumberland Ave in Takapuna for 23 years and said residents of the road have always parked up on the footpath to allow cars to get past between the curb and large islands protecting pohutukawa trees in the centre of the road.
"So many times over the years when we haven't parked up on the footpath we have people knocking on our doors asking us to shift our cars because big trucks, emergency services and any car pretty much bigger than a Mini cannot get past," she said.
She said she received a ticket for parking on the footpath one night about three weeks ago at 10.30pm.
The next morning her father took a photo of an Auckland Council vehicle in the same position.
Ms Hesketh emailed the photo to Auckland Transport and said the response she got was "seeing another vehicle parked in an illegal way does not give you the right to then park illegally".
"There they are again, tip toeing around the problem," she said.
"What gives them the right to park "illegally" but then ticket us for parking the exact same way?"
In another incident an Auckland year 12 student, who didn't want to be identified, snapped a photo of a Parking Enforcement Services parked in the Stanley St Wilson carpark over a no parking zone yesterday about 2pm.
Parking Enforcement Services is a private company owned by Wilson carpark that patrols private carparks.
The student said he thought the car was parked in a strange position, looked closer and realised the car was parked over diagonal yellow stripes.
"I've been seeing [the Herald's coverage] and thought it's not just AT that's doing this... Then I saw [Parking Enforcement Services vehicle] parked like that and thought I wanted to continue talking about it."
An Auckland Transport spokesman said all drivers, regardless of who they were, must comply with relevant road rules and bylaws.
"There are hundreds of streets around the region that could be considered narrow by modern-day standards. However, ... any relevant road rules and bylaws must be complied with at all times."
Auckland Council employment relations head Andrew Lubbe confirmed "an Auckland Council fleet car was on the street on August 10 on council business".
"Staff have been reminded this week of their responsibilities when using council property and that they must follow the road code at all times," he said.
"The public is reminded that if they see a vehicle believed to be parked illegally they should call Auckland Transport immediately so they can dispatch a parking officer to investigate."
Wilson Parking has been approached for comment but didn't respond by the time the story went to print.
