bad parking

Mick has sent in this early Christmas present:

Not sure where this was taken, it was forwarded to me by a friend.

Anyone know where it was?

I don’t immediately recognise the location, but if that forester is written off, I could use some parts from it…

My guess is that someone got confused between accelerator and brake which is becoming all too common these days.

ah a 2-fer – I get the one against the tree but the one on its side takes great talent! Yep and Mawson Southlands just near the Woolworths entrance it is

…and here we see the native Canberran Forester attempting to blend in with it’s surroundings.

I can’t understant how the laws of physics would permit a vehicle to get up enough speed to effect a rollover then end up in that location. seems the trees and barriers would prevent it.

Sure is spectacular.

Yep, carpark outside Mawson shops, just off Mawson Pl.

The white car (Mazda 3?) looks like it may have been a case of having it in first gear instead of reverse. That doesn’t explain the Forrester though.

The Forrester may have jumped the kerb off Mawson Pl and hit both the white car and the tree, but apart from the fact it is a little more vertical than usual, it doesn’t seem to have actually sustained any damage.

Saw this first hand, happened Thurs 29th November. A Honda Jazz parked to the left had its entire front bumper ripped off. The Forester was towed away but looking at it only passenger side panels needed work. Collected the Honda then mounted the kerb and hoisted onto its side after striking the base of a tree, unique.

Ouch, I wouldn’t like to be paying for the Subaru’s panel and paint costs!! Forget the Mazda, it’d have to be a writeoff.
