But Officer......

Can people be fined for stupidity or laziness?

  1. I wish... but with a caveat. Sometimes one has no choice but to park badly because others already have. [Especially across two spaces when parallel parking.]
    Then the original sinners drive away, leaving the no choicer behind like a fart in a lift.

    1. FC, quite true. That has happened to me.

    1. Repent your sins Diane. Sometimes the harder you try, the worse things get when parking. I can reverse park into a very tight space, but give me a large space to reverse into, I do it badly.

      Ah! So that it why "TOH" is in the driving seat when I am in your car!
      PerthDailyPhoto and the suggestion on how to combat Mme. QLD FLAUNT, who by the way was there again and much earlier?????
      Dog poo!
      Good idea.
      Requirements:
      1.Plastic bag.
      2.Co-operative dogs to produce.
      3.Cheap disposable gloves.
      4.Place produce under the door handles.
      Hmmmmm???
      With all the video cameras on this particular car park, and yesterday, a NEW car in this park was attacked by 4 "FERALS" with sharp knives on all sides. The police this morning with the co-operation of the Station Master were viewing the videos. As I would be photographed by cameras on virtually every day talking to the station master, nay that won't work but thanks for the idea.
      Pity.
      Still work is in progress - "We shall overcome".

    3. Colin, would they really bother to go through the recordings for a bit of dog droppings on a door handle? Maybe, but unlikely. Anyway, you've had your revenge already. Surely TOH is one of those mad Euro drivers. Ah, maybe does not apply the Swiss. They perhaps drive precisely.

  3. Is that the Izzet St carpark behind Coles/Safeway? If so then I don't blame them. The spots are small and almost everyone parks crookedly. If it's not then they deserve a good spanking.

    1. It is Fen. I never noticed until I looked at the photo how nice the trees are. For umpteen years we have been parking there Saturday morning, usually within the same half a dozen spaces. They aren't really small, just average. But many do park crookedly.

    2. I think they're small, everyone's bums hang out!

  4. That's nothing, you should see the parking station at my local shopping centre, you'd swear some of them were deliberately trying to park at 90 degree angles, many of them massively oversized SUVs.

    1. Victor, I suppose like our area, yours too is flooded with such oversized machines.

  5. As to the supply of dog poo for required smearing of doorhandles on wayward parked cars, there is never a shortage..for small dogs these two are very proficient! Let it be known that me, myself I would never do such a thing haha! In fact I'm lucky it hasn't happened to moi as my parking looks very similar to above..

    1. Grace, just don't block Colin's way, and you should be safe.
