St Helens, Tasmania: Six-bay parking act in IGA carpark sparks fiery debate

An outrageous six-bay-parking act has sparked a fiery response online after a photo of the manoeuvre was uploaded to social media.

The trailer-towing utility vehicle was spotted in an IGA carpark by a frustrated local in the Tasmanian seaside town of St Helens.

After a photo of the “terrible and inconsiderate” parking act was posted on a community Facebook page, the driver was mercilessly mocked.

The photo was captioned “crap Tasmanian drivers and inconsiderate parkers”.

“Car takes up four spots, trailer take up two spots. So, six spots taken up by one idiot, and there is long vehicle parking about 5m away,” the caption continued.

Comments started pouring in soon after, including “Two would of (sic) been fair and plenty”.

“If you can’t park it, then maybe get some practice in one day when you have some spare time. I was taught how to back a trailer before I was old enough to get a licence,” another person said.

“Trolley, cable ties … bulbar/towbar”, a frustrated local suggested vengefully.

There were also many rushing to the ute owner’s defence despite the group sharing an interest in exposing dodgy driving acts by naming and shaming the responsible motorists online.

“Ohh boo hoo builder takes up multiple car parks, in a half-empty car park,” one person wrote, defending the driver.

“At least his front end or back end isn’t poking out where it’s blocking traffic or could potentially get hit, plus he will probably only be a few seconds, I don’t think he had a choice in this,” another person wrote.

“Maybe the long bay was in use when he first pulled up?” another pitched in.

“Leave ‘em be, sometimes you just gotta park where you can when you have a trailer,” another wrote.

“I park my tandem in four spots on an angle if there are no other options! Two spots is not enough space when pulling out, need room to avoid damaging other vehicles, so hats off to this fella for respecting other vehicles,” another wrote.

One local expressed their frustration, however, writing” “Everyone defending the terrible, inconsiderate parking job … Good ol’ Tassie.”
