Bugger... I didn't go there often, but I suppose this is one of the spots where cars were dumped by the side of the road to spot. People parking there were sent away all the time. Logical, considering they parked by the side of a road where big 18-wheelers drive by at 60 km/h every 30 seconds.
I guess more of these spots where they had 'car-problems' will be fenced up.
Perhaps I shouldn't point any fingers (and this is just my own perception/opinion), but it's mostly those who refused to walk/cycle a little bit that caused this measure to be taken. Why can't people just park their car at McDonalds 200m away and walk or cycle to hard-to-reach spotting locations?
The last few times i also parked my car at McDonalds and walk to the place and you have in the evening a great place !!
I think that we spoiled it ourselves..........or is this part of the plan what they are talking about the last few weeks ??

Johan you can still take those shots if you just stand by the side of the road. I've been to the airport a couple of times since they anounced the new policy and have had absolutely no problems, and I am always in non-official spots.
The new policy is about parking, so please everyone, think about where you park.

Yes indeed they fenced off the little 'dike' along parking 'p30'...as i saw this also today. Real shame but i sort of saw it coming as last week i was standing there and immediately the police told me to leave...I said 'i'm not aloud to be here?' they said no without explaining. Real shame...hope we wont loose any other places!
