public service announcement
for anyone who ever has to pick up or drop off passengers at QUT Garden's Point... you may have gathered, between the profanity, that i am not entirely happy with the traffic and parking situation at QUT. particularly as it led to a $60 fine, etc etc.
i have since been informed (by QUT parking people) that if the setdown zone is full, you can pull around to the security gatehouse and ask them to let you in to drop off your passenger(s).
i am yet to test the theory; but damnit, i'm not going to stop in that nice safe closed-off sliplane if it means a fine. i'll take up the security guard's time, since that's the way it's gotta be.
