INSTANT PAYBACK: Angry shoppers block off vehicle with carts after driver parks across two spaces at mall
BELCONNEN, AUSTRALIA: Disgruntled shoppers clapped back at an inconsiderate driver who parked across two parking spaces at a busy shopping center at the Belconnen Westfield in Canberra on Sunday, August 7. One shopper took pictures of the black Jaguar that occupied two parking spots.
Angry mall-goers decided to block the car by leaving their trolleys around the vehicle. The shopper later shared images of an increasing number of trolleys being used to block the car in over a 30-minute period. One photo showed as many as five trolleys linked and placed around the vehicle.

"I love how petty Canberrans can be," one Reddit user said sharing an image of the car in a "bad parking" thread. One person noticed in the comments section how the trolleys had been gathered and linked to one another. "The trolleys have been chained together, surrounding the Jaguar where it will remain for all eternity," they quipped. Someone else suggested tying a trolley to the car's doors, while others applauded the brazen act of revenge. Another said that bad parking instances were rather commonplace in the Australian capital, with an entire social media page dedicated to 'Parking Fails' across the city.
A similar incident was reported recently on the UK's south coast. A driver was left furious after spotting a car parked across two bays to save one for his friend at the busy beach. The motorist was shamed by beachgoer Ryan Mortimer after a day trip to Boscombe. He was reportedly visiting the Dorset beach but the parking sight left him fuming. "Lots of people were arguing with them about saving the space but they didn’t care," Mortimer told Dorset Live. This caused many tourists and residents to scramble for parking spaces by the beach. Mortimer took to social media and said the driver was "reserving a space" for his friend. "Car parked on Boscombe Undercliffe Drive like this for over an hour," he wrote. "'We are reserving a space' -- that’s the response I got. Parking guys informed but no action taken," he added, saying the drivers were seemingly apathetic about the situation. "It was over two hours in the end until their friend arrived. Lots of people were arguing with them about saving the space but they didn’t care," Mortimer added.
