158. Contributed by Clarke:

This one is the biggest idiot on the blog so far... huge trailer truck, parked like a blithering idiot along a fast 70kph busy road just after a bend, forcing other drivers to swerve or change lanes suddenly. Contributor sent a copy of the pic to the TP. Hope this trailer driver learns a hard lesson.

I think this owner thought that the "70" is meant for people who has an IQ of 70...that's why he/she parked the monster truck there...

I think this one should forgive.. C the brake light is on so maybe he loss his way..

sometimes i feel for cars who commit these offences, we should report them. As for this case, for the benefit of doubt, i suggest that we give the driver a chance. He is oso earning a livehood there..

If its taxi driver, THEN GO REPORT!!

Maybe he thought he can park since he didn't see any double-yellow lines ;p

triage said...

but according to law, issit illegal to stop there?i think its okay?And i dun think he deserve to be label as parking idiot as he is not even parking?He should be inside his vehicle if the brake light is on.Should we be fair to him? :p

So many accidents in past were caused by such parking...we should not wait till accident happened and then start pointing finger...

I think the person who send in this pic is a real idiot... you are overtaking this truck and you still got time to take picture???

This truck is not parking at all just stopping, can see the brake light are on the driver must be still in his truck..
or maybe his truck break down..

Pls go and flip through the Basic Theory and see the rules regulating to illegal parking!!

Juz in case if u r not a driver, dun pretend like one..

All those readers complaining that this is not illegal parking - rest easy. This blog is not trying to showcase illegal parking specifically. That's just incidental. We'll leave it to the authorities to prosecute them.

However, this blog is about idiotic parking, which may or may not include illegal parking. Don't you think parking on a high-speed road, just after a bend , is idiotic, to say the least?

The photographer, and others, were stuck behind this truck, trying to change lanes. Stuck for so long that he had time to whip out a camera and take a photo.

So, I stick by the Parking Idiot label for this truck.

If the speed limit of the road is 60km/h and above, one cannot park whether there is no double yellow lines. If the truck is just stopping, there is nothing against this.

*nods head* yup no parking on roads with 'high' speed limits
