Parking Tuggeranong style

Tuggeranong people park pretty perfectly.

This car is perhaps a tad to the rear of the allocated rectangle, but isn’t parked over a line.

So what’s the issue here? The car is parked straight and within the lines. Is it simply the missing bumper making this pic worthy of such comment from the brilliant minds of the hard hitting RA community?

It’s a Peugeot Convertible. The bumper has obviously been damaged and it’s hardly the model of car Franks Parts Plus has in high demand. A new genuine one is probably worth similar money to the whole car and no doubt needs to be shipped via slow boat from France.

Is this website starting to turn into a localised online version of Today Tonight? Sure feels like it at times.

I think we have found the cars owner… :oP

It’s not only Tuggerabong, there are a couple of cars in the Gungahlin area that have missing bumpers, and one of them is even a VL Commodore!!

Including parked cars with spoto activity occurring within?

Never come across one.

However in such a case, a switched on parent might simply yell: “Look, a HORSE!” and point in the opposite direction of the dodgy spotto.

SPOTO

Bahahahahahaha, I thought exactly the same thing but I thought it would be lost on RA!

We punch for spottos and a parked spotto DOES COUNT as per family rules so ner ner 😉

Our kids were spottoing anything that was remotely yellow such as gold & really pale greens so we introduced the rule that is must be yellow, nothing else. The other thing was the tally count was being exaggerated so someone else in the car has to see it or it didn’t happen.

Parked cars are fair game.

Definitely. I like and agree with your spotto rules. However, one must yell “PARKED SPOTTO” in order to get that spotto.

SPOTO / SPOTTO

First time I felt lesser by learning a new thing…

But nothing that a case of beer can’t solve by killing off the brain cells that retains this (useless) information.

Well when you have three kids in the back seat on long trips you need something to pass the time. Considering 6 year olds are not Rhodes Scholars, it is perfectly suitable.
