Stupid driving/parking
« on: November 07, 2014, 12:17:57 PM »
First pic: I've seen too much of this lately - people driving the wrong way on State St between Ward and Passaic streets. Someone's gonna get hurt, especially when they barrel around the eastbound corner into the Ward St traffic feeds from both directions of Main St.

I'm not sure, but I think this woman made a right coming out of the credit union bank parking lot onto State St, just north of Passaic St. Seeing parked and moving cars facing her on either side didn't seem to give her a clue.

I had just enough time to get a rushed shot of that scene, including the one-way sign.


Second pic: This can't be right.

1, 2, 3. Multiple-repeat offender (see previous post) just can't seem to get the hang of it.

4. Went to the same driving school as the above.

5, 6. This genius didn't bother pulling up behind the mail truck and, instead, decided to park right in the middle of the street while she and an equally-IQ'd cohort schlepped cargo back and forth from her trunk to the trunk of the parked car seen in the upper right. The car behind her couldn't get through and she made it wait until she was done.

7, 8. Genius #2 parked in front of one of the entrance/exits on the Ward St side of the E lot and walked away. Ten minutes later, she did the same thing in front of the other entrance/exit.

8. The Queen of all Geniuses (Queenius?) drove the wrong way on one-way State St and continued on the one-way feeder from Main St! A small building blocks my view of most of that feeder, but what usually happens is that 10 seconds later, I see the car - which obviously realized the mistake and turned around - coming back the right way.

This one never came back and had to have continued the wrong way on the one-way part of Main St because I would have seen it if it went the other way.


Assuming they have them, how do these morons even get drivers licenses?

Maybe she was confused by the one-way sign that points east on a north-south street.

She parked in the lot for the 40 Passaic St apartment building and poured quarters into a meter for an empty space in the E Municipal Parking Lot.

Brilliant!


Insert a quarter to enlarge this picture.
