Rioters you’ve outdone yourselves this week.
I have a grand total of 37 photos which I’ve had to sort though, edit, crop, etc, etc…
Well done gang.
1. Tim kicks this week off:
Almost every time I come past this spot, someone is parked here…
2. Smee’s keeping an eye on things:
This guy came screaming into the Homeworld car park, against the flow of traffic, lept out then sauntered into Aldi.
3. Rugbyskier has been thinking of us:
Thought you might like this parking gem at Queen Elizabeth Terrace this morning. At 6:20am the carpark is busy with early morning exercisers and this young lady decided to show off her skills by straddling two spaces almost perfectly down the centre.
The parking spaces are already quite wide due to the curve of the road but obviously not wide enough for the Miss Astra.
4. Genie’s photo raises a question. Are people everywhere bad parkers, or does Canberra make them bad?
South Australians can’t park either.
Taken out the front of NAB in the CBD.
5. PITCHKA sends us a shot of one of Canberra’s fanciest car parks:
New bike lanes make for a great parking space.
6. Ms. Cheeky says there’s an app for this:
Here’s a bad parking app. Pretty funny. It’s not just rioters who like to point and mock.
And from a wide selection that I took at the Hyatt a recent morning, here’s a couple of fine examples.
7. Gregory has been finding us some new readers:
Narellan Pl, Tuesday night. four of the five motorcycle spaces were filled with cars. I politely informed the silver car they were in motorcycle parking space when they arrived. They came back to confront me when they saw me photographing. Long story short, now they know about Riot Act. And I didn’t get beaten up.
8. P sent us this classic:
There was a car in each spot just either side of this car but out of shot.
9. Goosepig took in some theatre, and some bad parking:
From outside theatre 3.
10. Jason spotted this little gem:
11. Ian speaks truth:
Money can’t buy basic skills.
12. Thebusdriver seems to have come across a rich vein of poor parking, and has wasted no time in tapping it:
Anzac Park West. The no rules car park sees people park wherever they can fit their car. On trees, on garden beds, on the footpath, in front of no parking signs.
A friend of mine spotted this in Queanbeyan around midday on Saturday. That is some Smart parking. Very cheeky but well if you’ve got it, you may as well use it. At least the Smart was in the lines unlike the ute and trailer.
The last two were taken at the bottlo in Queanbeyan, sorry for the poor quality. This ute was parked half way out on the road, with a 3-4 foot pole sticking out the back of it. It took up a full lane of traffic. It was a wonder no one hit it.
13. Matt scored us this shot:
14. Paul0075 is an international parking super spy:
I snapped this shot whilst working at Fyshwick Fresh Food Market on Sunday.
15. KB1971 solves problems with words:
This one isn’t that bad, I had just had a friendly chat with with a guy in a black ute who was completely blocking the entry to the cycle lane, the second one this week.
If I get one of those I will definitely be sending it in.
16. Sheep Groper is concerned:
Near the Woden discount chemist right next to the zebra crossing on Sundays is a fruitful hunting ground, especially since there’s lots of free parking just around the corner. The illegally parked cars make it difficult to spot darting rugrats as you approach.
17. Andrew plucked these from a reliable tree:
Both outside the belconnen churches center.
18. Dilandau finishes us off this week by echoing Ian’s thoughts, and visiting a 7-days-a-week long celebration of bad parking:
One is a porche from belconnen mall. Apparently money can’t buy you parking skills.
One is the gift that keeps on giving, Jamieson Mall.
Phew.. I’m done.
