Fair play to the GTR, the amount of people who damage our cars is amazing so don't really blame him for parking in the middle of 2 spaces.

Here in NZ they have an awesome idea for parking space lines where it is actually a big U shaped line so you park between the lines and it keep the correct distance between each car. People in the UK think if they are between the lines then they are sweet. Like this http://www.citymetric.com/politics/c...rdable-housing

Ah, you'll love the inconsiderate idiots that park round by me...



And the same round the backs...



Ambulance with blues & twos doing a 7 point turn on a shout to get into a road...(there was a car parked diagonally opposite to the mini also overhanging the road)



More bad parking...



The girl that owns this is one of the best...





Loads of room in front of the drop kerb for parent buggies and the disabled...



Completely blocking the back roads...



And the best was a double effort...




That's just a small selection!

To be honest, I sometimes park like as **** because of fckwits who do this.

Other members of the public seem to lack respect for other peoples property.

Well you obviously are bothered by it or you wouldn't of made this thread. It's obvious not everyone can park cos that's life unfortunately. So just Park as far away so possible

I park like an ****. Don't even care. Better than having someone give you door dings.

Whats annoying is when you have to park in a particular way cos other cars have been badly parked, only to come back and they've left making it look like you're the one who can't park!

Whats annoying is parking near a shrub, making sure other drivers have enough space to swing their doors open... and then some prick parks up your ass!



Walked away wanting to key the ****er.
