Parking Acton style

By 11 August 2012 14

parking

This clown was parked in the motorcycle only parking area in Acton. I had to park behind him in the only remaining spot left.

It costs $13 per day in that carpark and he had a valid ticket but still got booked. Why would you park illegally AND buy a ticket as well?

This is classic “I’m far too important to find an actual parking space, I can just take 4 riders’ spaces instead”. Need I point out the culprit is an SUV?

I had not noticed nearly so much of this in the past. Is it a new trend in society, or has it always been there, but I’ve just reached an age/stage where people doing crap they just plain shouldn’t catches my eye?

Reminds me of Miranda Devine’s idea that Sydney parking should be capped a
t 20 bucks.

Acton for people with more money than sense. I don’t know anyone who would happily and knowingly line up to pay what those cafe’s charge for muesli and coffee.

No you needn’t, I can use the same eyes I used to read your post to see the image and type of vehicle for myself.

Considering they have chosen to drive one of the worst cars ever built, I’m going to put it down to a simple misunderstanding whereby the driver was completely clueless, saw an empty spot, and just flat out didn’t notice the signs/line markings (don’t laugh, I see it happen all the time. Good responsible people who just suck at some of life’s basic tasks.)

Hope you left your steering lock off. After all, it’s a big hulking four wheel drive ….. and if he didn’t go up the kerb when he left, he might have decided your bike was the path of least resistance.

I thought of that and even though he/she was a fellow Land Rover driver, I did take a photo of the number plate as well.

GOOD. I can’t stand people parking in their cars in the motorcycle spots.

Because you’re a selfish and self centred knob
