Hey parkers, it’s Monday!

By 16 September, 2013

So have any of you ever spotted your own car on here?
I wonder what that would be like? You’ve wandered in to have a good Monday laugh at some poor parking then you are suddenly faced with your own shortcomings as a parker.
Would you laugh?

Monday Parking Parking Monday Monday Thing

By 9 September, 2013

It’s time to reward last weeks top parkers, and in doing so make everything rainbows and happiness with positive reinforcement.
That’s a lie, it’s actually time to laugh at those who cannot or will not park properly, as is our tradition.
Send in your bad parking photos to images@the-riotact.com, be sure to include the word “parking” in [...]

Parking Seselja Style

By 29 August, 2013

We’re still waiting to hear from the Liberals as to why their candidates Zed Seselja and Merinda Nash were nominated as having the same home phone number.
And we’re also still waiting to get any sensible clarification about Liberal marked vehicles parked in disabled spaces.
So it’s nice to come full circle in a way with this [...]

Monday Parking shame pit

By 12 August, 2013

Morning Rioters!
It seems our ongoing crusade against the bad parkers of Canberra is finally bearing fruit, as we have less photos this week than we’ve had in a fair while.
The only logical explanation for this is that all of these crappy drivers have seen their cars on this site, felt bad about it, and sworn [...]

What happened to our community?

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 [...]

Monday parking, after lunch edition

By 1 July, 2013

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 [...]

Parking Latham style

By 30 June, 2013

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 [...]

Monday parking mayhem

By 17 June, 2013

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.

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).

Tuggeranong underpass blocked by traffic

By 4 June, 2013

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 [...]
