Ignorant parking: North Battleford edition (part 2)

Back in the summer I wrote a post on ignorant parking here in North Battleford. That post only included one picture. I have collected a few pictures for the second post in what may sadly become quite a long series of posts.  Here are the new pictures:

I think this one is pretty self-explanatory!

While the lights were on (well, sort of) and someone was in the car they were definitely parked there for at least a few minutes.

This thing made a whole row of parking spots unusable plus I think it would be tricky for that one car to back up.

Ignorant parking: North Battleford edition

When I first moved to North Battleford, the standard of parking didn’t seem all that bad. However, it seems that now it gets worse pretty much every time I venture out shopping! There are a lot of people who stop here on their way to the lake during the summer; so, these people likely don’t actually live here. Still, it really seems like I have a knack for living places (Exhibit A = Abu Dhabi & Exhibit B = Goose Bay) where many people’s parking goal is to inconvenience as many people as they possibly can! Here is tonight’s example of people successfully meeting that goal:

Scary driving, even for the UAE

Posted in Driving, Dubai, Stupidity with tags , , on May 20, 2010 by Amanda

As I’ve mentioned before driving in the UAE can be a scary experience to say the least. The following YouTube video is front page news here and while I am not too easily shocked by stupid driving, I found it pretty shocking. It takes place in Dubai, on a major highway. I am amazed that the one vehicle was able to drive on just two wheels and not crash.
