ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Most drivers have experienced trying to park and another car is taking up more than one space. But a social media page is set up to show bad parkers in Albuquerque.
“It’s very frustrating,” said one driver.
“It happens all over the place,” said another Albuquerque driver.
They’re talking about parking spots. More specifically, the lack of parking spots when a driver doesn’t stay between the lines.
“People don’t realize they live in a world with other people that need parking spaces as well,” said a driver.
That’s where the Facebook page Parking Idiots of Albuquerque comes in. The page shows bad parking jobs in the city.
“Well not only do I think it’s funny, I think it’s a good way to sort of vent,” said one driver.
Some of the poor parking examples on the page include taking up more than one spot, parking a large vehicle in a compact space, and parking really close to other cars in a lot.
KRQE News 13 asked drivers if they would ever submit a picture to the page. Some drivers said yes and others said no, either because it would take too much energy or because they wouldn’t want to put another driver on blast.
“I’ll admit I think I’ve taken a picture or two, I’ve never posted it,” said a driver.
But most drivers said they did agree on one thing: “It’s pretty inconsiderate,” said another driver.
So far the Facebook page has 360 likes as of Thursday morning, and close to 30 pictures posted.
