Are you ready for the challenges this week bring Rioters?
Are you sufficiently pumped?
Do you need help reaching the the recommended level of pumpage?
We’re here to help, with pump inducing photos of Canberra worst parkers.
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
If you happen to see, or if you happen to be, one of Canberra’s worst parkers please take a photo and send it to email@example.com.
1. Local folk musician and crime fighter Matty Ellis sent this shot in:
Thought you might appreciate this snap taken near the oconnor shops this morning…
2. Matty narrowly beat out Poetix’s shot of the same park, but then Poetix worked out how to beat everyone else to calling Spotto:
The possum eradication programme? As seen in O’Connor.
3. Sheep Groper likes bad parking at the chemist and quilts:
I wasn’t spending all my weekend staking out the cheap chemist zebra crossing, I just snapped a photo of parking miscreants if I saw any when I went past. And I was at the Quilt and Craft show too.
4. Stuart seems managed to see Sheep Gropers chemist, and raise him a cop car:
Caught this one in Woden on Monday. Parking spots are a premium in this part of town at lunchtime. Is that a no standing sign I can see?
5. Delish has theories:
Found this pearler…
Obvious a massive destructive creature like Godzilla came and moved this car.
I can not honestly believe that this person was such a moron!
This cause so much interruption as it is the entry to Jamison Shopping Centre from Catchpole street, across from Southern Cross Club.
6. Glenn delivers this:
Saw this one outside of Monash Primary during the afternoon. Parent also thought it was a good idea to partially block the entrance.
7. Amie has a point:
It annoys me no end when self serving people take up the entire footpath, leaving no room for anyone to pass. This one was in Mckellar. In this instance I had to take a pram, a dog and a toddler on a bike onto the road to get past and then negotiate the curb on the otherside. I looked a right treat. – flabbergasted.
8. Dph investigates some stairs:
Tuesday afternoon. ADFA car park (one of many). Plenty of empty spaces within metres of this Ute. Still, someone felt the need to block off the main pathway to this car park.
9. R knows us well:
After your post on slow bad parking this week thought you would these two (two of same spot but one with the no parking sign) near teleopia park school.
10. An anonymous Rioter is reporting from behind the lines:
This is what happens if you cross the parking gods in the ABS car park in Belconnen. It went pay parking starting July 2013 to avoid the ABS paying fringe benefits tax. A complicated balloting and prepay system has been implemented resulting in a consistent below %50 take up rate. Naughty people still try to sneak in and get THE CLAMPS! Our COO has decreed that slinking off to the Westfield mall every two hours to move your car and avoid paying for parking is now a reason for initiating disciplining action.
11. Col uncovers a chemical dumping conspiracy at a childcare centre? Probably not:
Snapped today at the local daycare centre.
12. JayCroix brings us a texbook shot:
Spotted this in Phillip during the week
13.An anonymous Rioter has been keeping an eye on UC for us:
Hi, here’s some parking excellence from a few weeks ago. At the Hub at Uni of Canberra.
14. Tootza sent in a fine selection of lunch-meats (by lunch-meats I mean parking photos and I think I’m hungy):
Weston Creek last week.
Woden tonight – sorry for the dodgy pic but yes they are on the kerb.
Canberra Hospital last week.
