i dont know how legal that would be especially since if it wasnt the cars owner parked there it could be considered defamation of character or something, who knows it in this sue happy culture
but it WOULD be awesome!
Defamation would be something that would have to be proved in court. If there was actual proof that they had committed the offence, there would be no grounds for suing. However, the courts may take a dim view of something so closely approximating vigilante action.

Someone should start and online website where people can post pictures of people parked badly - complete with plate numbers. "I'm posting this on yourparkingsucks.com" would be a great message to leave for those people. Maybe some public humiliation will make people act less like jerks.
Apparently there is already a website like that... It's a .net address tho...

If I would have had a camera while shopping after Christmas last year...what the hell is it about that season that brings out the idiots? I mean, it was nearly impossible to drive down the aisles in the parking lots at South Hills Village. Why? Several idiots had dumped their cars in the aisles...instead of the freaking parking spots! Apparently, it was better to do that than risk their cars getting hit or vandalized. Quite a few had been keyed, and several had nasty notes left on them, usually reading "learn how to park, you f*cking idiot." Gotta love the Christmas season

It's only defamation if it's not true. Photographic evidence is a great way to substantiate the claim.

Whoops, Raps already got that. Ignore me, I was never here.

Damn, my idea was already done. I need to come up with a new idea that'll make me $2,000,000.

A year or so ago, someone parked in a handicapped space at my complex (the complex only designates HC spaces if a tenant actually needs one, so there was actually a handicapped person who used this space). The guy who had the space duct-taped a sign saying something along the lines of "Someone needed to park here and can't because you're too blind to read", along with a letter to the management (I guess this wasn't the first offense). I posted pictures here on one of the previous boards, and they're still on my Myspace blog (same username as I use here).

You make a good point, though I usually find that it's the parent who usually drives the car who does the initial teaching, as well as showing them examples of crap parking. The apple not falling far from the tree etc.
