10 parking fails so bad it’s almost considered art


From squids to swimming pools, here are some unusual parking fails.

1.The signs were all there


#parkingfail but 'A' for effort on just leaving it and going into the gym anyway!

But obviously this person didn’t see them.

2.You put your left wheel in…


Haha close enough 😜 #closeenough #parkingfail #thatwilldo

A post shared by James Byfield (@jamesbyfield1) on

Your left wheel out.

3.That's a roundabout way of doing it

Well, at least you won't have trouble finding your car. 

4. Wait for me! 

"I want to go to the beach too!"

5.The ultimate selfish park

We're not even sure where the logic is here. 

6.Not much competition for this parking spot

 Just drive right in.The water's great.

7.H2 Oh dear 


When you realize it's only Tuesday... #parkingfail (via @drivers.ed.dropouts)

A post shared by Pavemint (@pavemint) on

 Perhaps it's time to build underwater car parks.

8.A tyred and tested way of escaping a ticket

That's one way of getting out of it.

9.An efficient use of space

We can't see this ending well. 

10.Clever girl

“They were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.”

These images were all found using the #parkingfail hashtag on instagram and credit goes to the photographers.
