Default Another day of ricmond drivers.... eerrrr, I mean parkers.

This was from two weeks back, but finally had time to upload it. At lansdown mall in "wonderful" richmond. Pulled up thinking there was spot to park... nope. I guess his/her X6 was important enough for two.

oh I'm pretty sure he/she knows, it's just that they don't give a ****

I've seen them get off and look at his/her parking for a few seconds and just walk away

The front passenger tire was flat and they placed their hubcap next to the rear tire.

Haha! - Great picture of a classic "Richmond" parking job, skillfully taking away almost three other spots.

Yeah, I've seen some pretty awful parking jobs, even in Vancouver. I remember once seeing a woman trying to park an Expedition on a side road in Kits... She was in her 50's, with her two grown sons in the car, trying to park this massive SUV in front of her house. Her sons got out to help (by checking the clearance in the front and back), and the spot was about 5' longer than the truck, but it still took her almost ten minutes.

I think people should have to get an upgraded license to buy bigger cars... A lot of them can't seem to drive a "regular" sized car, let alone an SUV.

I'd still park my car in that spot.

I will put this here (even though it's not exactly related), but I can't stand people who park in handicapped spots without needing it. That's one thing that really gets me...

Guess what? I saw a F360 Spider parked in the handicap spot in Costco one time. I wanted to put my groceries on his trunk.

The guy ran out of costco back to his car, carrying pita breads. He looked like a doctor.

Lol, I think that's amusing only because it's at Costco... He could probably afford the car because of all the money he saved shopping there.

Sounds like a new ad for Costco: "So cheap even the Ferrari-owning douchebags like us!" (No offense to the legitimate Ferrari lovers out there)

Nothing can compare to the epic parking skills of this lady at Yaohan mall.





I vote her as Canada's Worst Driver

Funny when I was taking this picture, the c lai came out and had the "how embarassing" face and drove off, while another couple that walked by pointed and laughed at her lol...

Lol, that's a happy ending... I can't stand some park jobs, but it's not often you can (or have the time to) actually catch the person who did it.

I will, however, admit that I sometimes park diagonally within spots. In my defense, though, I park within the lines, and I do it to give both myself and my passenger a little more time to get in and out of the car. Then again, most of the time I just park in the handicapped spaces anyways...

I'm with you pope face. I can park my 2.5ton truck in a spot with damn near perfect precision, but the second I get into the Odyssey with its back up sensors and reverse camera, I can't get it in straight. It's like technology has made us worse drivers.

There's still no excuse for the parking jobs posted above. Richmond should enact an ass kicking rule that allows strangers to strike the offender as they're walking through the mall.

I hate tight parking spots... I can't actually get in or out of my car in them (but for those of you who have met me, you know why). I think bad parking jobs are due to a combination of three things: Lack of skill (including visual/spacial abilities); lack of time (even to get out and check where the lines are); and too small parking spaces. There's a lot of people living in the GVRD, a lot of them drive cars, and I'd say a large part of those cars are full-size sedans and larger (look at all the pickups and SUVs everywhere). New Subarus aren't that small... Even the new Mini and VW Rabbit are huge, considering their roots. Not to mention that these people want to go out and eat and drink coffee and shop. Where's the best place for that? The mall. And the malls love it. If people come to their little slice of paradise and spend money, then the mall makes money. And if more people come, the mall makes more money. How do you get more people to come? More parking. But, since buying additional land and building more parking area is expensive, they just shrink each stall by a couple inches to get more in each aisle.

Then again, I could be talking out of my ass, but that seems like a reasonable rationale for tight parking spots. Not a good rationale, but a reasonable one...

That's the only think I miss with my '94 honda accord.....

Sure I don't mind wedging myself in the .8 of a parking spot you've left me....and do go ahead and door ding the crap out of it. My car likely costs less than the door on your vehicle.

my neighbour likes to park right on or over the line in our underground parking lot....

i've taken to parking as close to his car as possible to try and condition the behaviour out of him. marginal success so far.

I always think that people park like that to deter others from parking next to them and dinging their doors.

Hah..I have a 94 civic that I specifically drive to large parking lots just for that cause, but yet my gf can never understand why I always take the beater and not the new VW. I tried to explain to her, but she jsut doesn't get it.
