Images of Canberra – Capitals’ Smart Car parked sideways outside Tilleys

By johnboy - 21 October 2008 74

What could possibly be more delightfully Canberra than a women’s basketball team parking its smart car sideways outside a lesbian friendly bar in Lyneham?

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world?

I wouldn’t be caught dead driving one myself, though.

I wouldn’t either, unless it was either this or this.

Or a Smorvette or a Smorche or a Smerari

Missed a bit:

If the road is a two-way road, the driver must position the vehicle parallel, and as near as practicable, to the far left side of the road.

The sign doesn’t demand parallel parking, and they’re within the lines, where’s the problem?

The Australian Road Rules are the problem.

Reg 208
The driver must position the vehicle to face in the direction of travel of vehicles in the marked lane or line of traffic on, or next to, the part of the road where the driver parks.

This rule does not apply to a driver if the driver parks on a length of road, or in an area, to which a parking control sign or road marking applies, and information on or with the sign or road marking includes the words “angle parking” or “angle”;

I think is is very smart – you would need to be a point guard – what the bet its Nat Hurst!

i don’t have an issue, but i can see a parkie striking just because they don’t understand why they would park that way…

Yeah, I don’t see why people get so bent out of shape over those smart cars parking oddly. I wouldn’t be caught dead driving one myself, though.

There should be none. They’ve been parking Smart cars like this in Europe when Ab Fab was still making new episodes.

So If I get one of those I can avoid parallel parking????

wouldn’t think that the parkies would see the funny side of that.

peterh 2:38 pm 21 Oct 08

so THAT’S why it is parked sideways!

This has made my day. Delightfully Canberra (and in this case moronic) indeed!

Insert calliope music whilst doing so

I can just see dozens of overly tall women pouring out like clowns.
