Parking Army reports in

Hey Whale,

Attached is a photo of a parking-moron who obviously went to a lot of
trouble to take up two spots.

Photo was taken outside Mobil Mana, in Wellington. Vehicle

Parking Madness Southland

Gidday up there,

Snapped this in downtown Invercargill a few weeks ago. Averagely awful parking even if it were an angle park – BUT – look again – It’s all parallel parking on that side of the St.  We do get a lot of out of towners from up North though…..


Hypocrite Ayn Rander!

I saw this selfish bastard trying a quinella here in Ti Rakau tonight. He didn’t care and threw money at me as he left the betting shop.


Parking at the Royal Oak Mall on Friday night.

There are two parking spaces, she parked in the middle (see the tyre
barrier things at the front of the spaces)
These two spaces are loading zone only (see the yellow paint, two
women got out of the car with a bag of laundry and went into the
laundromat  – so not a goods vehicle)
Right rear of the car across a pedestrian crossing

She put her bag of laundry into a supermarket trolley, and then nearly
hit me (a pedestrian on the footpath) and then almost crashed into the
glass window, she obviously has no better steering control of a
trolley than she does of a car




Whale Army, it is time we step this up a notch.

Take the photo, email it to the tipline, and issue a WOBH Parking Ticket.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
