Parking Day is Monday is Parking Day

By Barcham - 26 August 2013 25

Goooood morning Rioters!

It’s a new working week and it’s time to set the tone for your work week by immediately slacking off and looking at some parking photos!

Boom!

If you happen across a terrible example of parking, make sure to snap a photo and send it in to images@the-riotact.com.

Include “parking” in the subject and make sure to tell us what name you would like to be credited with.


1. Brandi begins our day:

A perennial favourite.

Re number 18 – I seem to remember that in the UK where I learned to drive, that parking on the road but facing in the other direction is perfectly legal. At least everyone seemed to be at it for no penalty. So you get people driving down the road looking for a park not just on their side but also on the other side – ready to speed across another lane at any moment! What fun it all must have been.

What would one expect from a race of people who think that the best place for a washing machine is in the kitchen?

I’m quite impressed with 2d. Not bad.

Don’t see much wrong with the truck in 13b, seems legal to me.

2aIi dont see a problem with that one.. I always park next to a pole if one if avaliable as you can get real colse and it leaves pleanty of room on the other side..

3b is in the lines. Don’t lower the quality of the whole thread by putting things in there that don’t belong.

Personally, I don’t see any problem with 2a/2d – that’s some precision parking there in what appear to be micro parking spaces. The real problem is not the poor person trying to park there, but that car park owners/operators are allowed to call that a car parking space!

Btw: No, it’s not my car!

I agree. They’re between the lines, not blocking anyone else, and if there’s no-one on the back passenger side to get in or out, there’s really not a problem (that bit being up to them anyway).

So Urban Dictionary is wrong when it claims “Parked spottos do not count.”

Has seen the call often enough to be curious…

I always want to snuggle up to cars parked like #10, especially if it makes it hard for them to get into the drivers door. and #17 is perfectly legal – if you were in Melbourne.

Def not legal here… Cars are ALWAYS parked facing the wrong way on Nangari St in the City. I think this comes from the confusion that half the street is one way.

Parking inspectors are always booking cars along the stretch that is dual ways.
