In the red

San Diego, CA

Jeff says, “While walking to my neighborhood library to return a book, I spotted this (note the red curb). I was pleased to see a violation notice had been put under one of the windshield wipers. Parking at this specific red curb is just asking to be caught in the act because a police station that parking enforcement officers work out of is a neighbor of the apartment complex seen across the street in the photo.”

Tattle tale

Kansas City, MO

Mikki says, “This is in the parking structure for the Nelson-Atkins Museum. This is actually one of the vehicles in my family’s caravan. I sort of feel guilty for tattling but as I walked up the photo op presented itself and it was too good to miss.  But I’ve obscured the faces, mostly so I don’t get into trouble. Granted we did need the handicapped spot for two people in the van who have difficulty walking (see crutches) but it is pretty crooked. We usually do better.”

It’s okay to tattle Mikki.

The Berlin Wall

Berlin, Germany

Ange says, “Not technically bad parking, but the line of bricks across the picture represents where the berlin wall was… because I want to park my car over the berlin wall.”

That does seem a little blasphemous.

Triple threat

Ange says, “From my hostel window I witnessed some atrocious parking. This photo captures three examples. My favourite is the black van in the bottom right corner.”

Budapest, Hungary

Ange says, “This van is parked on a corner and sticking out on the street. Sorry for the bad angle, but the scary delivery man caught me taking the photo before I could adjust the angle.”

A parking (Buda)pest

Budapest, Hungary

Ange says, “First of all this isnt even a car park, its just a street that’s been barricaded. So there are no lines and therefore technically no ‘wrong’ way to park. But one car has managed to double park not one but at least eight!”

Two wrongs don’t make a right

Long Island, NY

Nikki (The Grammarphile) took this picture in her office parking lot. “I love how, if one person parks like an idiot, it starts a pattern/chain reaction of idiotic parking.”
