Images of Canberra – More Canberra Parking

By johnboy - 21 November 2008 46

Stace8383 has sent in this classic example of parking in this fair city.

So who’s more to blame? The sedan or the SUV? And is it just coincidence that both cars involved are Mazdas?

Yep, the 4WD.

Probably some nazi, fascist, swastika wearing, tory party voting, John Howard biography writing, white shoe and sensible haircut and suit wearing stooge toadie member of the Liberal party.

Or maybe just an inconsiderate driver.

Thumper, nazi is a subset of fascist. Also no Liberal party member would drive a 4wd that is over three years old.

Hear hear.

Why in all hell do people think that a light truck is necessary to navigate the suburbs of Canberra?

4wd drivers are shite parkers. i like to leave little notes under their windscreen wipers telling them so. i suspect they know they’re bad drivers so they buy a giant hunk of metal to surround themselves with for the inevitable accident.

If I was the driver of the red car, I would’ve reversed mine in as close as I could get to the 4WD, making that driver have to get in through the passenger side.

Another benefit is that the dents and scratches the other driver puts on your car in anger are on the passenger side and you don’t have to look at them every day!

Agree.

See it all too often around town.

Make them climb in if they can’t park in the centre.

Just call me curious but why are the regos blacked out? I’m sure there are good reasons and I’ve no problem with it but I’m curious as to what they are.

There’s no good reason, it just saves getting shouted at by nerds.

Having said that I usually blur rather than black, which gets less comment, but this is how the pic came in.

New buildings, less carparks and useless public transport. I’m sure we can all join the dots here.

That said, the 4WD driver needs to learn to park.

Blood pressure is a funny thing…the driver of the second car that parked would have had to crawl over and out of the passenger side.

I would say the driver of the SUV caused a problem and the driver of the red car is a tosser.

Unless one of the vehicles has out of Territory plates, it will clearly be the Government’s fault for not providing sufficiently commodious spaces.

We Canberrans are always perfect in every respect.

niftydog 8:56 am 21 Nov 08

So who’s more to blame?

Jointly, the manager of the car park for not properly line-marking the spaces and the ACT Gov. for massively reducing the number of parking spaces.

The glorified station wagon might be a victim of a third offender! Always remember the old “butterfly flaps it’s wings in Bogota and I get road rage” adage.

It appears to be the SUV’s fault, however I always like to give the benefit of the doubt to the supposed offending vehicle. Who’s to say that the person that might have been next to him on the other side didn’t park too close to the line, forcing him to park that way. (although odds are that they are just bad at reverse parking)
And no, I don’t own/know that car, but it happens to us all at some point or other, being forced to park off-centre because of another driver.

SUV? Let’s just call them 4WDs like we did until like…a year ago!
