A lefty tabloid rag has busted Len Brown parking in a cycling lane…but its ok because he tweeted he was sorry.
Mayor Len Brown has been snapped parking across a cycle lane on a busy Auckland road – and his flippant apology on social media has created outrage.
Mr Brown was photographed by a Herald reader being interviewed on Carlton Gore Rd this morning.
The car he travelled to the interview in is parked across a cycle lane.
It is an electric car with Auckland Council branding and is next to a recharge station.
Photos clearly show the car was blocking most of a bike lane.
The Herald asked Mr Brown for an explanation and he waited an hour before responding, posting an “apology” on Twitter and Facebook.
“Out test driving one of our new EVs and refilling at a charging stations. Unable to park without impinging… #SorryCyclists,” the post read.
