Parking Civic style. A triple slam!

By johnboy - 21 November 2012 22

parking

Konazz has sent in this very special piece of parking:

Spotted this p-plater on Genge St in Civic.
1) parked and unattended in a no parking drop off area (no one came in the 5 minutes I was there)
2) over the parking line
3) parked facing the wrong way

Normally we obscure number plates but this effort really deserves full credit.

Nice.

“Normally we obscure number plates but this effort really deserves full credit.”

Is it really more deserving than the others, or is it that you’re fairly certain that being a purple Festiva with P plates, it isn’t owned by Mr. Gillespie, or someone else who will sue you/make threats of bodily harm?

I really have no fear whatsoever of Mr Gillespie. I’m really not his type.

And no, the make of car really didn’t enter into my thinking.

The blue ute in the background doesn’t rate a mention? I’d be fairly confident that it isn’t within the lines either

Parking wide must be a blue car thing, judging by the ute across the road.

I would suggest that the person accidentally put them on as they were parking so beautifully.

Easier to place the parking infringement notice.

And on what grounds could jb or RA be sued for publishing a photo of a public place taken from a public place?

The fascination of blurring out number plates, especially in this context, really puzzles me. What’s the issue?

Generally we just find it makes for a more pleasant existence.

Extremely frivolous ones I’d imagine.

That said, nutbags have a tendency to congregate in large numbers on the internet. Pissing them off is all fun and games if your online identity isn’t linked to your real identity, but if they actually know who you are, then it becomes pretty risky (IMO).

Maybe they left the wipers running (wich we couldn’t see in a still pic) in an attempt to stop an inspector putting a notice under them! hahahaha! :-)

That car was stolen from Reid CIT and dumped there, the owner got it back last night.

Damn lazy junkies can’t even walk a few blocks, but when they need a hit they’ll go to great lengths to get it.

Sigh….
