Two weeks worth of bad parking photos, it’s like all your Mondays have come at once

By Barcham - 18 March 2013 27

We took last Monday off, but you did not. You’ve been hunting these bad parkers down with incredible enthusiasm. I am impressed. If I had the ability to make all of you a badge, I would totally be making all of you a badge right now.

You can play too! Send photos of poor parking efforts in to images@the-riotact.com, and be sure to include the name you want credited!

Also, here’s a fun game. Try and Spot Mickey Mouse looking creepy as hell in these pictures.

Lets get to it!


1. Lofmyx has been staking out at Jamison shops.

It’s been quiet at Jamison recently, but yesterday it picked up, with the last 4 being taken in the space of 10 minutes.

The first was near the airport on Canberra Day holiday.

eww

yuck

2. Rioter tim_tam_twinky caught this one:

I took this photo at the canberra birthday celebrations. Our centary brought out our finest parkers 🙂

oops


3. A mysterious reader sent this series of images, but took no credit. Like a real hero.

Belconnen Mall:
zing

Jamison:
doik

Costco:
ouch

Dickson KFC:
eek


4. Holden Caulfield used his keen skills of observation and noticed this massive truck.

It’s only taking up the three car parks and was also doing a decent job of blocking the driveway.

fwoar


5. Amanda was thinking of us.

Snapped this one today for your viewing pleasure!

6. Curlylocks spotted this jerk.

Hey John captured this today at about 12.00pm. Not only is he taking up one disabled parking space but two. Darn inconsiderate sod. Had my mother with me who has a disability, frustrates me when people do these types of thing. Brother left a lovely note on his windscreen for him.

oh


7. Rioter bitterness gave us a choice of photos.

At the risk of being a single-issue submitter, behold this parking job on Lonsdale Street on Friday evening.

Your choice if you want to use the snarky diagram, or the original.

Oh we’ll use the snarky diagram.

snark


8. Damien hit us with this one.

9. Dean gave us this little gift.

SPECIAL BONUS PICTURE!
We have a bad driving photo to share with you from Grunge_hippy today!

Just as a special treat.

This one was spotted on the parkway this morning reading a novel while driving.

There are no words

The last one is beyond shocking. Maybe one of her friends should buy her an audio book? Or, even better, a brain transplant???

I agree. This photo actually makes me angry. She could of killed someone.

Could have, not of. How hard can it be ffs?

Having gone from driving small cars to a bigger one I think the issue is that with a big car there aren’t a lot of options for getting it parked.

Whereas in a small one you can be all over the place.

What is it with bad parking and small cars? Are they related to the small car drivers who, when lined up at lights, stop about 2 car lengths away from the car in front of them … nudging forward like snails until they peak at a distance of around 1 1/2 car lengths .. seriously, parking people – it’s not that fn hard!

Another boguemobile at the Kambah Village taxi rank last wednesday night. 2 bogan looking blokes, complete with ciggies hanging from their lips and rat tails driving their old red ute. They weren’t youngies either but well over 40 – or have just had a hard life.

While there were at least 70 other spots free a whole lane away… selfish mongrels…

Those who read while driving are unlikely to have the mental capacity required to actually write.

does lofmyx win something for the double-bunger [the fourth pic]? great spot, that…

rekkun there should be an honorary prize for riotous parking of the month…

Pearlypops 1:33 pm 18 Mar 13

Yep, that sure is a creepy as hell Mickey Mouse..

My mate Andy was in the Paras. On leaving the service he worked as a pylon rigger. He fell off a pylon and lost most of his left leg to amputation. One of his subsequent delights was to block in people parking in disabled parking spots, and go off and do his shopping.

More than once I returned to his car with him, to see some Chav/Bogan hopping mad at having been given a ticket for parking in a disabled spot.

Their anger soon cooled when they realised the guy who they were hell bent on extracting revenge on, was not some poor disabled weakling, but a 6’ 3’ tall, built like a brick outhouse, ex-squaddy. Oh how we laughed.

I note the lifeline banner at the base of the page (on my current viewing)

That frets me like those people who wear headphones (not hands-free, but full on ear covering headphones) while driving. Who needs to hear ambient noise while driving!

It just annoys me how clueless some people are. They just don’t care.

Same goes for people that wait til the last second to slow down, and constantly jam on the brake pedal to stop. They just don’t realise that one day, you may put your foot down and not stop on a dime.
