When did it become acceptable to resort to criminal behaviour over the issue of ‘parking’? It is assault to abuse someone and it is vandalism to damage someone elses’ property. The street in which you live is not “yours”.
It is not ok to run out of your house and shout at someone for parking [...]
My apologies Rioters!
I know many of you have trouble starting your working week without the sweet endorphin rush that comes from checking out the bad parking photos on a Monday morning, but circumstances lead to me being out of the office all morning, so you’ll have to deal with getting it after lunch.
If your employer [...]
I’m furious about the lack of signage in the Canberra Centre carparking notifying people that all-day parking fees for rooftop parking has gone up to $11a day.
Fair enough fees go up but some warning is appreciated.
This abandoned vehicle on the path through Latham was due for removal “within 2 days of 10:30am 18/6/13″ has finally been vandalised and will probably be across the path before long, if not pushed right into Ginninderra Creek
Surprised it hasn’t been torched yet.
The couple of strolling locals I spoke to were pretty cheesed off that [...]
Rioters you’ve outdone yourselves this week.
I have a grand total of 37 photos which I’ve had to sort though, edit, crop, etc, etc…
Well done gang.
1. Tim kicks this week off:
Almost every time I come past this spot, someone is parked here…
2. Smee’s keeping an eye on things:
This guy came screaming into the Homeworld car park, [...]
Happy second day of the new week Rioters!
Let’s start our working week off with a bang by shaking our fingers and looking sternly at those uncouth individuals who cannot or will not park correctly.
1. One of our legion of anonymous Rioters has started the ball rolling this week:
This pic was taken Friday afternoon in the [...]
This in from a source at the Health Department:
So those who prepaid should be alright.
But one does have to wonder at the ballsup.
Just an update for those still interested in what’s going on:
A friend of mine works and parks at the Airport.
He keeps a parking card issued on September 6 2012 in his wallet.
Occasionally he puts it in the machine to see how much its racked up.
[ED - Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it in [...]
The carpark next to The Tradies in Woden has got signs up advising that prepaid (gov) vouchers are no longer accepted in the carpark (as it’s now been bought by someone pending developement).
Trouble is, they put the signs up on the machines today, but numerous users who already have prepaid vouchers (and therefor don’t go [...]
We may have kicked back over the long weekend, but bad parking never rests.
If you should see some bad parking while out and about, grab your camera and send some shots to email@example.com.
Be sure to include the word parking in the subject and let us know what name you’d like us to credit you with.
This seemed too good to just be bundled up with next Monday’s parking photos.
Rioter Wayne has sent us in this shot of an underpass between Waramanga and Chifley (near the Tuggeranong Parkway). Can you notice anything in this underpass that should not be there?
Evidently it’s a stolen car, and the owner is responsible for coming [...]
A response to letters left on the windscreens of people who park in Power Street, Mawson.
Good morning Rioters!
It’s a new week and we need something to start our Mondays off right. Bad parking photos you say?
You’re the boss!*
We supply the website, you supply the poor parking photos!
If you see a car that isn’t quite where it should be, snap a photo and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. be sure to [...]
Rioter Chris has spotted the Black Thunder parking in the wrong spot, and sent the evidence to Canberra’s head office of pointing out poor parking choices.
Got a nice pic of Black Thunder’s attempt to blend in as a Taxi… no driver either
Outside the Dept O’ Health & IP Australia buildings in Wofo.
Sink your teeth in while they are fresh!
Monday means bad parking photos here on Planet RiotACT.
If you spot a poor parking photo waiting to happen, be the person who makes it happen!
Then send those photos in to email@example.com!
Be sure to include the word ‘parking’ in the subject and what name you would like to be [...]
Shame shame! It’s fun to shout!
Let’s shame some drivers shall we?
If you see a parking attempt you think is worth a shaming at please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember to include the word parking in the subject and let us know what name you would like to be credited with.
1. Ryan starts us off [...]
Good morning everyone.
Why it’s Monday, you know what that means!
Here is our usual collection of stinkers to amuse those of you who aren’t still giggling over SkyWhale memes.
If you take a picture of some awful parking be sure to send it to us at email@example.com.
Be sure to include ‘parking’ in the subject and tell us [...]
“Hey gang what time is it?” I call out into the cold Monday morning.
“IT’S BAD PARKING TIME!” Canberra screams in response.
Let’s do it.
If you’ve spotted an awful park and would like to publicly shame the car responsible (or at least share the moment with other Canberrans), please email the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include the word [...]
I very rarely have a rant. But today, I ventured onto the road in Challis Street Dickson. There are little bicycles painted on the road. I was riding right over them on the left hand side of the road, near Dame Pattie Menzies House.
Suddenly a car passed me, pulled in ahead of me (that is, [...]
Boom! It’s a new working week ladies and gentlemen! I hope you’re all full of fire and ready to scortch your way through this Monday. Me? I’m working from bed.
For those of you who do need a little pick me up, we here at RiotACT Pharmaceuticals have exactly the drug you need!
MONDAY PARKING PHOTOS!
It’s Monday, and that means I have to dig through the GAZILLIONS of photos you guys have sent in.
If you are one of the few people in Canberra who have not sent me a parking photo this week and would like to, email us your pictures to email@example.com.
Make sure to include the word ‘parking’ in [...]
Tim has sent this in for our edification:
The attached was observed early this morning in Rivett. Police have been in attendance.
Perhaps some folks were objecting to cars parked on the street.
Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it in to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Ok no, sadly our society doesn’t work like that. Being a good citizen is not rewarded, being a bad citizen is punished.
So let’s point at and boo bad parking.
Take that bag parkers, way to be bad citizens!
Seen some bad parking? Snap a shot and send it to us at email@example.com, and make sure to tell [...]
Possibly inspired by RiotACT’s parking wars the Office of Regulatory Services has been moved to publish a fact sheet about roadside parking:
Under section 208 of the Australian Road Rules, a vehicle may be parked parallel on a road with the vehicle facing the direction of traffic, unless the vehicle is adjacent to a pedestrian ramp [...]
Simon Corbell is chasing the obviously vast constituency of bad drivers and has announced the passage through the Assembly of the Road Transport Legislation Amendment Bill 2013 which will let those few transgressors ever caught laugh off the penalties:
Disadvantaged and financially vulnerable drivers in the ACT will have additional options for dealing with their traffic [...]
It seems to me that if the Government requires me to shell out an inconvenient amount for parking – like $9 – then they should:
– provide machines that work,
– provide machines that accept notes,
– provide machines that give change, and
– if part of the instructions are in bold, italic and [...]
Adding to tensions at Charnwood Shops is a dangerous thing indeed. But TAMS are warning that they’re resurfacing the car park:
The ACT Government wishes to advise motorists and other road users that the main car park of the Charnwood Shopping Centre will be resurfaced on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 April 2013 (weather permitting). [...]
Are there really that many bad parkers out there? Or is it the same few, constantly being photographed over and over again?
Spotted a dud park? Take a photo and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you let us know what name you’d like to be credited as.
1. Claire sent us this wonderful example:
This will require a little work for those not keeping up with today’s drama. First go to this thread. It’s Monday’s bad parking photos, pay special attention to this photo:
Rioter pptvb had this to say in the comments:
Oh, this is GOLD!
@ #11. I have a fair idea who placed the sticker on your car.
A great number of you have been busy with your phone cams documenting the shocking selfishness and poor driving skills of Canberra’s bad parkers.
And so without further ado here we go.
1. No sooner had Barcham (last seen at the Folk Festival no doubt having a lovely time) posted last week’s story than the new ones [...]
Driving home this afternoon I noticed that every car, truck, caravan and trailer parked on the nature strips of Jackie Howe Cres in Macarthur had yellow envelopes on their windscreens (or tow balls).
Does anyone know what that’s all about?
I know officially that it’s illegal to park on suburban nature strips, but I didn’t [...]
It’s Monday, time to rise and shine and point and laugh. Here are your bad parking photos for the week!
Send photos of poor parking efforts in to email@example.com, and be sure to include the name you want credited!
1. An anonymous reader sent in this stinker:
Had this little gem of a**holery on my phone for a [...]
