I never cease to be amazed at how fucking stupidly people park at parking meters. I mean, there's a graphic right on the meter showing how to park and apparently drivers are blind. Scary. Really though, at the rate with which I see people painfully misparked at a meter, it's as though it's everyone's first time. There is not only a picture on the meter showing how to correctly park, but there are usually other cars parked correctly in the general vicinity of the grossly out-of-place car.
Take note: Front bumper aligned with the meter. Pay the meter.
Difficult stuff for some to grasp I know, but WTF?
