Angle parking takes on whole new meaning
BUNDABERG drivers, prepare to be snapped and shamed as a new Facebook group shares Bundy's Worst Parkers.
With a community armed with iPhones and Androids, there's no hiding. Just one snap and a tap to upload could see you shamed in seconds.
And the Facebook page is gaining a quick following.
Bundy's Worst Parkers had already amassed a following of more than 350 people yesterday as it basked in the glory of broadcasting drivers' bad parks.
Pager liker Michael Edmonds had already uploaded numerous photos to the Facebook page.
"I thought I'd start; I upload photos of people who have no regard for others," Mr Edmonds said.
He said he was shocked by how easy it was to find bad parkers in Bundaberg.
"Some people out there are so bad. How they managed to get their licence is beyond me," he said.
He said Bundaberg drivers were one of a kind.
"I've travelled interstate and Bundaberg would have to be the worst yet," he said.
"The amount of times you see near misses - it's getting crazy."
He said people needed to be mindful of the way they parked and believed people were being lazy.
But it's not just Mr Edmonds who noticed the laziness of Bundaberg drivers.
Bundaberg Traffic Branch senior constable Michael Oliver said parking offences were generally "laziness offences".
"That's how we look at it," Snr Const Oliver said.
He said the ignorance was illegal and could see drivers fined.
"If we drive past and see it, they can expect a ticket," Snr Const Oliver said.
The fine for parking double parking, parking over the line, parking on the curb or nature strip is $44 each.
But he said drivers could even come back to no car at all.
"If they're dangerous, we could consider towing," Snr Const Oliver said.
