Driving me mad #2

This is just to show that it is not only the new cars with personalised number plates that park badly. These were shot with my cell phone at a local shopping centre, so the quality is not so great, but it does paint the picture.

This is not angled parking.



This heap of scrap should not even be on the roads.

There's no excuse for this sort of selfishness, and no use for it either. Makes one wish for a car you could bash a few with, without putting a dent into your own vehicle, of course. Enjoyed browsing your recent posts.

Hi Max,
I am not a driver so I don’t have such problems but I know a person who would park his car just like that and of course that there is no excuse for that behavior.
Thank you very much for your nice comment on my blog and friendly advice which I appreciate very much. I have just done what you recommended me. Thank you again!

Egads!! Umm.. k, so this is just plain stupid and I'm thinking... perhaps the steering in his car is broken and he is unable to pull in straight and his car only drives at angles... LOL :D
I don't know... but yes, this is bad.

Lynette,some good bull bars should do the trick :)

MedaM, I guess we can't account for other peoples selfishness.
On my remarks, I believe in giving credit where it is due :)

Max-e said...

Michele, that is one of the good ones. Do you see any cars like this in Canada?

Hi Neva, thanks for the comments - I was hoping that I did not sound like a crusty old man :)

Max-e I get crazy parking all the time at my mall, The number one thing I hate is people parking behind someone who already has someone parked in front of them, boxing the person in, happens all the time.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Yes Max, Canada has their fair share of cars similar to this... apparently some cities have laws now as to was is allowed to be on the roads and if it is not road worthy that is towed away and the driver is fined and the car is not allowed to be on the road again. It is a dangerous vehicle and can cause harm to other drivers... I am hoping more cities across the the country will do the same...

We only put bricks under when it is slippery, lol. Once we had our car sliding slowly down the driveway, lucky us it stopped before sidewalk, lol. My husband declared temporary insanity on my part when I told him that it felt like the car was moving, but then when he found the car on the end of the driveway, he undeclared me, lol. Thanks for sharing this, we have some crazy parking methods here too, lol. BTW Max-e, you know I am usually late to arrive to comment, so I try to comment on few of your posts, but please do not feel obligated to answer to all my comments, I will understand, just don't want to take up much of your time writing me back where you could be resting or taking nice photos. Thanks again, Anna :)
