This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Ange Louise Braap said the Night Owl centre was a nightmare.

"I always make my partner drive if we need to go there for any reason," she said.

Zoe Corvan said the CBD was a bad place to park.

"Nowhere to park and badly designed so that it can be accessed and used as it should. Sad to see a CBD so empty."

"Now McDonald's has added to the chaos. One way in and one way out equals madness," she said.
