Contributed by Khim:

Another WTF! parking - seems like a lot of big cars are getting caught at parking idiotically recently. Are these rich towkays all parking idiots? Maybe they should hire chauffers, instead, if they do not know how to drive and park by themselves.

Some may argue this is on the line and excusable. I would say - No! This is a clear example of idiotic parking! Why does he need to park like this? Is it so difficult to park within the lot? There is so much space on the other side. Or, is the Audi A5's side mirrors and reverse gear designed so badly that drivers fail at parking? I think Audi would vehemently deny that. Which leaves only the conclusion that the driver is a genuine Parking Idiot.

Look out for unskilled driver in a big car - this idiot thinks driving a Jaguar is an excuse to park inconsiderately. Maybe he should drive a toy car and practise proper parking before graduating to a real car.

Dumb and Dumber parking together. Idiotic parking must be infectious, as the above VW and Kia drivers must have shared some dumb ideas with each other. Christmas eve, supposed to be a day of giving - but these selfish drivers take 3 lots to split between the two of them, depriving another driver of a parking space in such a congested carpark as Queensway SC.

Taken at Queensway Shopping Centre on 24 Dec 2010.

Everyone who drives in Singapore must be aware of how difficult it is to get a parking lot at Holland V, especially on festive occasions, weekends or any darn evening! So when someone parks like this - one word springs to mind: RETARD!  Only a braindead loser would be so selfish to park like this, especially at a crowded carpark on Christmas day. What an idiot!

Taken at Holland Village MSCP on 25 Dec 2010 at 1.15pm.

Contributed by irritated passenger:

Not only a Parking Idiot, this van driver is also a Road Bully.  This moron parked his van onto the edge of the parking lot as seen in the photo. And when the passenger of the red car had to squeeze to get out of the tiny space available, had inadvertently touched the van. The Road Bully driver had the audacity to get out and berate the red car occupants. (I'd have decked the fella one on his nose for his brainless action.)

Unfortunately for the idiot, the red car occupants had ignored his rants and chosen the smarter way of getting back by posting the story on this blog. So now, Mr. Road Bully Parking Idiot Van driver of GW7363C, welcome to the Hotel Internet - you can check out any time you want, but your infamy will never leave!

Contributed by zac:

My word - this is one sick driver. I would encourage the authorities to check this out - looks very much a case of DUI. No sane driver would dream of parking like this. Even a normal parking idiot who may carelessly park out of his lot would not park like this. This one takes the cake, and sure deserves the Parking Idiot of the Day award. I really wonder what's his excuse to park like this.

Contributed by Miss Miffed:

Here's a rich idiot! Able to afford a Maserati, but unable to afford a good driving instructor - failed parking!! Occupies 2 lots in a HDB MSCP - serious learning deficiencies. If so rich to afford the parking fines, he should just park out on the service road and get booked, instead of depriving considerate drivers of a parking lot. This moron gives all Maserati drivers a bad name.

Contributed by Class 2 Rider:

This idiot biker deserves the wrath of everyone walking by and hampered by his inconsiderate parking. He parked his bike smack in the middle of the pedestrian walkway and blocked the whole path, forcing everyone including those pushing prams and the elderly to step onto a busy and dangerous road. Not just idiotic, but downright illegal - the traffic police should take some stern action. He also blocked a fire hydrant access - should get the fire department to issue him a summons as well. What a moron!

Taken along walkway at Marina Bay Sands link to Pan Pacific Hotel on 17 Dec 2010.

This was taken at Shaw Centre, notorious for producing parking idiots. This idiot driving this mini SUV Rav4 has been bitten by the Parking Idiot bug pretty badly. We all know how difficult it is to get a parking lot at Shaw Centre on any given day - so this kind of selfish parking can really make other drivers extremely frustrated and angry. This moron truly deserves a hard kick on the butt for his inconsiderate parking!

This is really WTF! kind of parking. I mean, really, look at this! How could anyone just park like this and not be concerned? This idiot really deserves a smack on the head. 5 series BMW gives the right to park like it's your grandfather's garage? I think not!

Taken at Albert Street Food Court basement carpark on 17 Dec 2010 in the afternoon.

In Review, BlogTV and other news...

ParkingIdiots blog has been back in action for a few months now, since the hiatus for a long time. The incidents of idiotic parking, I personally feel, have abated somewhat in the last couple of years - perhaps, in part due to the shame caused by blogs such as ParkingIdiots and Stomp.

Sadly, however, it is merely wishful thinking that they have been totally eradicated - judging by the contributions I am receiving from drivers and other road users in Singapore. The contributions have been slowly increasing, as ParkingIdiots blog's comeback is spreading across the web news. The next few posts I shall be posting are idiotic parking incidents captured in just over a day.

For those who watch ChannelNewsAsia's BLOGTV program, may have taken note of last week's (14 Dec 2010) episode which discussed Road Rage incidents in Singapore, and how very few culprits are brought to justice. Thus, they wanted to know if shaming them, as ParkingIdiots blog has been shaming inconsiderate drivers in parking badly, would be more effective than just depending on the authorities.

Well, they interviewed yours truly on air to discuss the merits of setting up a blog site to shame such drivers, and I gave my views on why I started ParkingIdiots. If you missed the episode then, here it is below:

Well, we continue our good work to rid society of this anti-social behaviour. Back to the trenches, boys and gals! Remember, if they don't know they've been caught, they won't be shamed. So please print out one of the convenient ParkingIdiot labels from the right side bar of the blog, and place it on the idiot's car when you take a photo. Here's a sample:
If you have any suggestions for more creative labels, please send to me and I'll link up for others to download, and give due credit to you. Please continue sending me those photos!

This idiot thought that by parking at midnite nobody would notice his moronic parking habits. But he is sooo wrong... you can park and run, but you cannot hide! We'll get you and post you up for the world to see what an idiot you are at parking!  Parking - FAIL!!

Unskilled driver parking head in but FAIL! It's not as bad as some, but still parking like this just makes life difficult for others. See the MPV next to the idiot's car - that guy can park properly, why can't this idiot be as good? Seriously need to develop better skills and a more considerate attitude. Even the cat disapproves, and stands away!

There seems to be a proliferation of BMW parking idiots. Does this mean BMW drivers are less skilled at parking? Or they have a phobia of walls, thinking the wall would move and scratch their cars? Perhaps they should visit a shrink and get their heads checked out.

Taken at an MSCP at Boon Keng Road opposite the Kallang CC, on 21 Nov 2010 at about 2pm.

Here is an inconsiderate fellow. Oblivious to his idiotic action as well; even when given a well-meaning glare by witnesses, the idiot chose to ignore his selfishness, and walk away after parking. How does society educate these idiots? Just shame them on the Internet, I guess!

This idiot is unbelievable. He must have been drunk when he parked like this. I mean, nobody would even dream of parking like this if they were sober. He must have been absolutely blotto; it's even amazing that he managed to nicely squeeze in between the motorcycle lots. The traffic police should keep an eye on this moron to catch him for DUI.
(And thanks to the contributor for placing the warning sign on the car - let the fella come online and see his idiot action on the web.)

Taken at MSCP Q84 Holland Close on 23 Nov 2010 evening.

This car was parked like this for at least 8 days! Amazing! All the way from 21 Nov till 29 Nov - and received 3 parking tickets. They should have towed the car away and left it at the impound.

Contributed by J.T.:

Nice car, nice plate - idiot driver. What, want to park in HDB estate but afraid to park near a lorry? Can't park in designated lot? Afraid of getting the silver paint scratched? Doh! This type of driver should probably stick to driving scrap cars.

Are the drivers of these 2 cars plain dumb or just freaks? 3 lots just to park 2 cars? If you don't know how to park head in, please reverse in. Oh, and if you don't know how to reverse park... please give up driving and take the bus.

Seriously. This car is puny. And that is a huge lot. And the car is orange. Surely it must have been friggin' obvious to the driver that that is bad parking! This driver is a confirmed parking idiot and should be sent back to driving school. These kind of drivers are a menace to the public.

Well, well. 2 idiots in the same MSCP. Looks like parking idiots are breeding. One would think a driver of a manual car would have more dexterity than someone who only drives automatics, but no... not this moron, who has worse parking skills than the idiot driving the Honda Accord from the previous post. What does it take for people to park properly into their own lot? Looks like the fool driving this Sunny has yet to find out.

Contributed by RG:

What, are 2 litre cars excused from proper parking? Or is the driver of this Honda Accord an idiot for not being able to park properly in such a wide parking lot? I think the title of idiot is appropriate. It's inexcusable for drivers to park inconsiderately like this.

I don't whether to chastise the idiot, or pity the fool. This is what they say about karma: it always creeps up and whacks you on the back of the head when you least expect it. Seems like this bozo had been taking advantage of free parking at the loading bay of this block, and abusing the privilege, one too many times. Parking Idiots in Singapore blog does not condone vandalism of any kind, but looks like this guy may have received just retribution by someone who was really pissed off.

Welcome Back to Parking Idiots in Singapore Blog!

It's been sometime... but Parking Idiots in Singapore blogsite is back online!

The posts are coming in again - and all of you good drivers are most welcome to submit any new captures of idiot parkers. I had thought that drivers would have learned by now... but 'fraid not. These idiots are still out there, and begging to be posted online.

There are now several websites posting pictures of these idiots, and hopefully teaching them some good values through the shame. The famous citizen's blog Stomp is one of the more successful ones out there.
I hope through all these websites we can surely drum some sense into these knuckle-brained morons to take some care whilst parking. Be considerate, and the world smiles with you. Be an idiot - and get your photo on the Internet!

I've repaired the links to the Parking Idiot Labels on the right sidebar. You can again download your favorite ones and place them on the idiots's cars and send the photo to us by email, and we'll take care of the rest.

Now that we are back in business again, we're thinking of several improvements to the site - and this includes some contests and giveaways for the best submissions, and various other interesting stuff. More to follow in the coming days. Keep a watch for new posts, and new photos of parking idiots to be posted here.

Just a bit of warning to all you contributors. I know we all get angry or frustrated at these parking idiots - but, please DO NOT vandalise or cause any damage to the offenders' cars or property. Parking Idiots in Singapore blog does not condone or encourage acts of mischief or vandalism. Just place the label on the car (do not stick using glue or other adhesives), take a photo or photos with the car plate clearly seen, and with the inconsiderate parking act clearly understood, and submit the photo. That's all!

Please keep your photos coming in!

This Proton driver occupies 2 lots at NUS. He must think he's driving some kind of tank, that needs a huge parking space. Funny how one goes to university but is so stupid that he still does not know the basics of considerate parking. I think it's better for him to drop out of uni and go back to driving school.

Taken at NUS.

This white VW Polo's driver must be a noob. From the SJX plate we can see it's a new car - so, obviously, this driver needs more practice at parking before taking to public roads. It's a shame how driving centres are passing drivers who lack basic skills behind the wheel. What a silly driver - even after initially parking like this, should have had more sense to adjust into the lot correctly after noticing the error.

OH MY GOD! This is the worst driver of 2010! This is how this moron thinks that parking should be done? Just leave the car in the middle of the carpark and just go off! What, a BMW does not need to be parked in a lot? This kind of idiot should not just have his car towed away ... but sent to the scrap yard directly; as he obviously cheated in getting his highway code.

Did not leave a contact number, disappeared for nearly 2 hours, and kept the other car drivers fuming mad until he cooly came back on his own sweet time. Man, I wouldn't have been so patient...
