More dominoes

Excondido, CA

Tim says things are bad “from the left starting with the silver mini-van, all the way to the burgundy car one from the right. The gold pick up bucks the trend – but I don’t know if he parked before or after the others.”

Always love the domino effect.

In a rush

Carlsbad, CA

From Tim: “I guess folks are just too rushed these days to back out and straighten the car up – and be within the lines. In this case it could cost a few hundred bucks if a cop drives by. I’d say it’s worth the 33 seconds it takes to fix the parking job – but that’s just me.”

Innocent victim

Grand Rapids, MI

Poor Samil owns the car parked on the right. I hope he didn’t have to crawl in through the passenger side!

See the animals

Pittsburgh, PA

William took this at the Pittsburgh Zoo where the parking lot was only about half full. I guess when that’s the case, why not take up two spots to yourself!

On the grass

Location Unknown

David says people always have a hard time parking on this street, but that this is a particularly excellent example of bad parking. I think we can all agree.

Parking meters are confusing

Brooklyn, NY 

Says Sheryl: “I saw this example of bad parking last night when I got off the subway. You can see the parking meter is at the middle of the passenger door. This was the spot closest to the corner. I noted the car behind it was parked appropriately (so no reason it should be pulled so far forward), and the crosswalk was painted about 5 feet in front of the meter. Other than total cluelessness, I can only guess that the driver was lining themselves up with the crosswalk instead of the meter. Oh, and they were also a good foot from the curb.”

Just can’t get it right

Modesto, CA

All Laura has to say is, “Honestly, it is everywhere around these parts so perhaps I should keep my camera with me.” Please do!
