I have received quite a number of feedback to display the car plate numbers, instead of masking them.
So, I consulted a legal professional and was advised that it was ok to display the car plate number. There is nothing illegal about doing so, and if the intention is not to defame any specific person, but just a picture of the vehicle - there is nothing objectionable about it, and no legal action can be taken.
Therefore, based on the above advice, I am stepping up the blogsite a notch by henceforth NOT masking the plate numbers of the cars, unless specifically requested by the contributor of the photo. I shall respect the contributor's privacy and wishes.
With respect to other feedback, I shall also be more selective about the photos being posted. The criteria is that the car should be at least partially out of a designated lot, and the car must be parked in a way to inconvenience or be a danger to other drivers. They may or may not be breaking any traffic laws, but their inconsiderate behaviour is what we wish to highlight.
Thus, someone who may not park centred in the lot, but still remains fully within the lot, or touching the line, we shall forgive and hope they do better the next time. (You can still stick a parking idiot label, though!). No one can be expected to be perfect, so we shall be more forgiving. But, true idiotic parking, like the Hyundai SUV in the previous post, we shall definately want to display here.
So after this long and rambling reply to feedback received, I hope that all the readers and contributors continue supporting this blogsite, and keep submitting the photos of parking idiots. We have garnerned many supporters in the short span of time this blogsite has been up, and I can only imagine that it shall get more exciting in future, now that we are going to display the number plates!!
