Monday is a parking day

Barcham 2 September 2013 20

It seems every week more and more Canberrans are being infected by the bad parking epidemic, it’s getting frightening.

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 images@the-riotact.com.

Be sure to include the word “parking” in the subject line and let us know what name you would like to be credited as.

Here are two examples of bad parking from the car parks of Gungahlin taken Tuesday morning.

re the merc in #12, perhaps she just ran out of petrol… or was that neurons..?

Maybe its Mercs, #10 is also a Merc parcked in the middle across a driveway to more parking. Car’s front corner was about a metre back from the curb corner. Sorry, I had other priorities than showing this clearly.

Oh, and is the building abandoned Water Police?

Give number 5 a break. They got the VW close to the bin but just couldn’t lift it in. The driver is probably off looking for some strong lads to help finish the job.

In the middle of the road and blocking a driveway….

0_o !

And I could be wrong, but it also appears to be less than 3m from the unbroken lines.

Stop the fight! It’s all over ladies & gentlemen. The Merc has won by unanimous decision. Well done, Cath.

That has to be the worst “parking” effort I’ve ever seen. The driver has literally left their car in the middle of a road. Not even a tradie would do that.

Page 12 for those interested.

But it is facing the right way.

I know how much you all hate change, but trust us, this is for the best.

Although we will tweak it next week to make it a bit easier to get to the next one.

You sound like a politician.

Surely ACT Parking Operations should check for this post every Monday?

This new layout makes Spotto-ing much more difficult.

Bad Barcham!

I don’t like it either, but sadly things were breaking the other way!

Is there a middle ground that could be reached?

While not a fan, the clicky clicky does make going back to see the photos people have commented on easier…

You mean I have to say Bad JB? That feels wrong, somehow. Or that you were off surfing and couldn’t fix it?

Perhaps you could put a ‘next’ or an arrow, as it is too hard to click on the relevant number.

At least for the middle aged and shaky. (-:

Sorry about the clicky clicky guys,

But having them on the one page was overloading google’s image server (!) with the volume of readers wanting to see them all at once.

While I’m all for the public shaming of horrible parkers. Not so keen on the clicking on 16 links. If you were to break it up just do it at the very most 3 pages.

Spotto Page 7 and double points for page 10.

Tragic that I went through this, but first step is admitting I have a problem.

#10’s a double spotto with a very cool ’32 3 window
