Get your Monday parking hit

By Barcham - 29 April 2013 25

Boom! It’s a new working week ladies and gentlemen! I hope you’re all full of fire and ready to scortch your way through this Monday. Me? I’m working from bed.

For those of you who do need a little pick me up, we here at RiotACT Pharmaceuticals have exactly the drug you need!


Canberra’s best parkers have sent us pictures of Canberra’s worst, and using the latest pseudo-science techniques we have distilled these into a powerful salve for you to apply to your eyeballs in website form.
Oh mondays.

If you would like to join the elite parkers on Canberra, all you have to do (other than park super well all the time) is take a photo of someone parking terribly and send it to Make sure to include the word ‘parking’ in your subject and let us know what you’d like to be credited as.

1. Poptop starts us off this week with a wonderful collection of photos and a recommended course of action:

I think this effort has been in place since Friday, I only got a chance to get some snaps this morning. Perhaps responding to poor parking with fire is the answer.



These three show the apparent response to parking in the large, busy but not overcrowded dirt carpark at the Arboretum on Saturday and discovering you must pay $2 per hour for the privilege; being to take up as much room as humanly possible with your car.




The last snap is of a reasonably snug culdesac in Isaacs being invaded by people attending an on site household contents auction on Sunday. Way to make friends with your former neighbours.


2. Clj is on this car’s case:

This is the second time I have seen this car parked in this courtyard off London Circuit (Waldorf to the left, Public Trustee to the right). The thing that surprises me most is that they can get it up over the kerb – this dear little Daihatsu has the smallest wheels I’ve ever seen.

Tiny wheels!

3. Paul believes he has found the best park of the year in Parkes:

Hi attached is the best park I have seen for the year. I don’t know how he got out of the vehicle as all the doors are blocked!


4. Gnaty77 spotted this mysterious park:

I’m still trying to figure out how this driver managed to squeeze in there… A stellar effort, but I think maybe they need to read the riot act more often… This doesn’t look like 1 metre to me!


5. Kerrimik continues our hits:

Despite the ticket machines and car parking spaces, I believe neither are regularly used


6. TP3000 snuck up on this shot:

Good Evening, this gem is taken from the back of Bing Lee Belconnen earlier this afternoon.

Bing Lee

7. Mark gives credit where credit is due:

At least they were in the lines, pity it’s a motorcycle park.


8. Richard has dug into his archives:

Saw this car back in march parked outside at coombes cl in the ANU.



9. Homer J. Fong is giving this driver the benefit of the doubt:

Hopefully just an attempt to squeeze in between two since-departed cars, otherwise a total shocker.


10. CanberraNerf took a break from sword fighting to think about us:

Snapped this on Sunday out at Majura Park. I watched them park it (gleefully, thinking about The Riot Act) and there was no reason they couldn’t park properly.


Feeling better? Alright, get to work!

Took me all day to get time to look at these… I feel so much better now!

Damn, you’d be filthy if you’re the dude in #4, given it’s highly likely that the red car behind it is being driven by an arsehole – whose car is still in the No Standing zone. Strange tactic by ‘red arsehole’, given that if the object of their selfishness arrives first, there’s a 50% chance he or she will still be there to hurl abuse upon red arseholes return.

Also, 2 bucks a day for the arboretum? No wonder no one Canberra goes to this shit, forcing the Government to come up with ridiculous excuses to justify it that are nothing close to reality.

Finally, #9 gets a “pass” from me – I’ve come to expect so little of Canberra drivers, I’ve come to ignore amateurish parking as long as they’re in their lines.

I sent two photos in, and neither of them made the cut? Damn.

The ute in #1 was parked there broken down on Thursday arvo. Obviously some ass clown thought it would be funny to torch it.

It looks like the ute that was sitting on the side of Gungaahlin Drive near Kaleen last week. Some goose apparent,y pushed this car into the middle of the road over the weekend & it was moved back & Police tape wrapped around a day later (next time I went past).
