Parking ANU style

By johnboy - 18 October 2011 14

parking

MR has sent this picture in with this note:

Couldn’t resist sharing this great piece of parking on Hutton St near the ANU yesterday. This car is parked smack bang in the middle of 2 car spaces.

With the very limited parking around the ANU precinct, parking like this is an atrocity!

And yes, that is a note on the windscreen that someone has left, which has a request to the effect of ‘Learn to park within the lines. You are taking up 2 car parks!’

Sounding a little like a defence from a guilty conscience DUB? 🙂 🙂

That being said, I also agree there could be many a reason for the car to be parked in such a manner. How many adequately justify, who knows…?

No, I will tell you a little secret-I have my OWN ( :-p ) spot at work to park, but have seen plenty of utes’ with trailers parked in a messed up way to offer my explanation.

Well, ironically (?), it appears now that the driver of that car may be part of the high viz brigade (or has very bright taste in clothing).

I am jealous of your parking spot! Although that is why the bike is handy! (when the magpies aren’t swooping!) 🙂

Don’t be envious son, it is one of lamest human qualities.One day, perhaps, you will have a parking spot,so you can drive into a city and park at your place of work.
I live 15 minutes drive from my work-riding a bike is not an option for me, I like to get to work in comfort.Call me lazy, but I am still fit. 🙂

What IF there was a tradesman’s ute with a trailer parked in the front, before that silver car parked in a space?:)

Even so, that’s why the lines are there aren’t they? Tradies ute + trailer taking almost 2 spots, park fully within the next available bay, no issues for others when the tradies ute leaves. Just sayin’ 😉

He may have needed to park like that due to other cars parking incorrectly. They then leave, and he’s left looking like a mug!

Or it could just be bad parking.

There has frequently been a skip placed in that first car space closest to the Kingsley station entrance and encroaching on the second so it is possible he had no choice. The builders have treated that street like their own, just blocking it up whenever it suits.

Unfortunately its not just the students who can’t park at uni!!

Perhaps this camry can be regarded as a metaphorical representation of the fact that ANU students are generally terrible at parking cars, especially on side streets. For proof, just look at Froggat st, across from Barry Drive, in Turner.

IMO, there is many reasons as to why camry is parked the way it is parked.
Nothing to rant over.

Is that a “pay and display” spot? ‘Cause if it is, I assume the car either had two valid parking vouchers (one per spot), or had received a parking ticket?

Hmm, so if there were cars on either side of the Camry then it would be good parking to place one’s car right over the linemarkings; is that what you’re saying. 😛
