Parking Jammo style

By johnboy - 18 July 2012 7

jamison parking

Loxmyf has sent in this excellent shot of a particularly gifted take on the ever popular disabled parking, this time at Jamison.

It’s a few days old now, but here’s a quality parking (standing) effort at Jamison Shopping Centre.

He is parked in an area that is for not parking of any vehicles. Can you see the stripey lines he has parked on?

The reason they allow such a wide berth around disabled parking spots is so the disabled drivers can easily enter and exit their vehilces.

Guy who delivers junk mail ’round my way uses a pram/stroller to carry his supplies. And parks it every half a street or so while walking to each letter box. He isn’t very good at putting it at the edge of the street however, and nearly gave Mrs P1 a heart attack the other week when she came round a corner and had to break hard to not hit an apparently unattended baby…

This certainly seems to be the attitude of the bloke who delivers the papers around my suburb while I’m out on my (early) morning constitutional. Never seen him use his indicator, and he likes to save a few nanoseconds by driving on the wrong side of the road if he’s turning right in the next 100m – even when he doesn’t have a clear view of the whole stretch of road.

There’s nobody much around at the time, but it would only take one car coming around a blind corner to cause a considerable amount of grief.

It looks like the crack of dawn when nobody else is around, so who cares?

It’s that type of lazy attitude that usually causes the biggest issues on the roads…

“Barely any traffic around, doesn’t matter if I change lanes without looking”

“It’s early morning, so I’ll park wherever. It’s not like anyone else gets up early”

“Not much traffic around, so I’ll use both lanes in the round-a-bout.”

Instead of presuming things, how about just doing the right thing?
