I made a casual observation today about the increasing number of new apartments, shops, and restaurants planned for southeast Braddon (area bounded by Northbourne, Haig Park, Torrens, and Cooyong) and the apparent decreasing number of places to park a car.
Is ACTPLA planning directed towards making parking difficult for people who do not live in [...]

It feels like it has been forever since I did a Monday Parking post on an actual Monday.
Is it odd that I feel vaguely nostalgic about it?
It is, right?
At any rate we have a bunch of terrible parks for your to frown at this week, and also a surprising amount of free publicity for the [...]
Dear Lord you have been busy Rioters,
71 parking photos this week.
I’ve been cropping and editing and resizing and sticking little “RiotACT” labels over all the license plates all morning.
So did everyone just take more photos, or is poor parking becoming an epidemic?

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?
Would you cry?
Would you swear never to park poorly again?
If you’ve [...]
The Belconnen Community Council are conducting a survey to determine actual parking requirements in the Belconnen Town Centre.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org, be sure to include the word “parking” in [...]
A bonus parking photo in today from Charnwood by a source that chooses to remain anonymous.

Just check out this massive haul of poor parking shots.
If you’ve seen an outbreak of bad parking, take a photo as evidence and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 [...]
Goooood morning Rioters!

TAMS have announced they’re changing the parking in Barton around Telopea Park:
“From Monday 19 August 2013, parking on the west side of Telopea Park will be prohibited,” Ken Marshall, acting Director of Roads ACT said today.
“Currently, vehicles are parking on the side of the road along Telopea Park which restricts the space available for [...]
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 [...]
When leaving the wild excesses of the weekend behind and beginning the task of preparing yourself for the week ahead, be sure to remember these few important steps:

Hey Rioters! I just got back in the ‘Berra after a week away and I immediately craved photos of people parking poorly.

Feeling better now?
Alrighty then, OFF TO WORK!

Please post it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Be sure to include what name you would like to [...]
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.
