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 write parking in the subject and let us know what name you would like to be credited under!
1. Sheep Groper blasts off this week with two finds:
2. Darrell discovered this on a Sunday morning:
3. Loxmyf has been trawling a classic poor parking location at Jamison for us:
Old faithful location for bad parking
Under Dickson Tradies
4. Poptop returns to team parking after an absence:
I have been sick [Coff, Hak, Coff] and so not out and about as much as usual, but the Tuggeranong Hyperdome Carpark has one “parking space” that just keeps giving.
The first dark car was parked in the Keep Clear spot when I arrived early on Saturday, the second was there when I left. There was also the large SUV thing that decided that regardless of how dangerous, illegal or inconvenient he had EVERY right to just stand behind the parked cars outside Jardines for ages.
5. The Great Bambino pulled this shot from his bag of tricks:
Taken last week in the Parliamentary Triangle, yes the bikes probably have more power but c’mon…
On another note since pay parking was put up on the agenda again the brown bombers have been racking up nice little quotas for the ACT Govt.
6. 5ultan has been on the prowl:
Just a few pictures attached of some good parking I have observed recently:
Braddon 1: Saturday night a few weeks ago, directly across from Knightsbridge penthouse. Note how the other cars are parallel to the kerb!
Braddon 2: Sunday morning, last weekend. Across from the servo, parallel to Haig park. I am standing at the rear of the park, so there was more than enough room to drop back off the kerb.
Dickson: No, there was no disabled sticker, it was on Sunday afternoon and yes, there were plenty of other parks in the vicinity.
7. Martlark knows how to park:
The Belconnen Churches center continues to pay out the parking bonuses.
Free advertising, free enterprise or free loading?
Intersection of Ginnenderra Drive and Aikman Ave.
8. Patrick has this man’s number:
Canberra Centre carpark in the long stay area. Definitely no disabled parking placard displayed. A fairly fit looking 40ish man was the occupant. He walked off briskly with no sign of any disability. But if you own a big expensive merc then the rules don’t apply to you.
9. JonahBologna has made a handy diagram:
Lyneham High School often has events on evenings and weekends, and usually parking becomes an issue, but this Saturday afternoon really stood out. Almost every car was parked illegally with one pair of tyres on the nature strip rather than legally at the kerb. One entitled jerk even decided to park on the muddy playing field.
10. Oliver gives us a textbook bad parking shot:
Just as well they don’t teach driving at Calwell Primary School.
11. Adam found this little number at the Chifley supermarket:
And it wasn’t late a night or anything like that.
One must give credit to the reverse parking style.
* You’re not actually the boss.
