The Legend of Monday Parking

By Barcham - 4 November 2013 15

Hey, Listen!

It’s dangerous to go alone, take these parking photos with you!

If you happen to find some poorly parked cars along the way, snap a photo and send it in to the RiotACT at images@the-riotact.com. Be sure to include the word “parking” in the subject, and let us know what name you would like to be credited with.

What? That last bit wasn’t a quote? Well excuuuuse me Princess!


1. Magoo kicks this off:

Hey guys, saw this outstanding effort at Deakin shops last Monday afternoon (21/10). The car park was otherwise chockers with after school pickups and tradies, but I was at least pleased the Maxima was able to get two spots for themselves!

Loving that the parking snaps have been exported overseas. If you took an o/s parking snap I think you should front up to the Eagle’s nest to collect a free drink!

I’m game! Those were taken in Killarney. Had a grand time, I’m back in Aus now though.

And last night’s gem was another idiot in the taxi rank at the Kambah Village. But, alas, no camera to collect the evidence.

That’s normal though, people are just too lazy to find a park. What is rare is for taxis to actually using the taxi rank, which I saw today.

Tradie ute with the number plate RTC.

Look closer at it and it announces Rob the Carpenter.

So if anyone knows Rob the Carpenter with a white tradie ute, you should remind him not to park in spots he’s not eligible for.

There’s such a sense of satisfaction when you can laugh at the people with the personal plates when they’re doing something wrong. I mean nobody would give a toss if his number plate was probably yab 123.

Yeah, I know what you mean, the number plate makes ALL the difference. I sometimes see hit and runs but I don’t bother reporting them unless the offending vehicle has personalised plates. It’s the only foolproof way to know if the offender is a dickhead or just made an innocent mistake. You’re so right.

There was some really extra bad parking in the mooseheads carpark last Tuesday night. The car in question had identifing stickers on it. It really confuses me that people with business or community groups prominantly on their cars park and drive badly.
It doesn’t reflect well on the group/business involved.
(This particular incident ended in a hilarious facebook flamewar where his mates couldn’t understand why it was such a bad park).

#15 – you’ll find that all day, every day, at Kaleen Plaza, and it’s been like that for as long as I can remember.
The only surprise is that it took this long to get a run here.

if they legalised scratching cars who parked in two spots, they’d stop doing it. I know people who do it deliberately because “ALL” the bad drivers scratch their car. The only care about themselves and their car.

9a is fair game, but not 9b or 9c – there are no parking rules in small Irish towns, just like there aren’t in small Australian towns.

I wonder who stole the O from the supermarket.

@Sarah (picture 8) this has been discussed before. You’re going to the gym: exercise is good and can be free!

#18, last pic – weekday evenings, a cleaner parks there, fine by me.
During the day, trucks deliver there including a Health Service truck delivering clean linen.
They generally leave ample space for the path traffic.

i like how no.8 has a tree falling on the offending vehicle – wishful framing…

@13, how very Canberran.
