Shaming bad parking: Social media accounts target Lower Mainland residents

Posted on 23/08/2019 | in 杭州龙凤 | by

VANCOUVER – Web sites and social media accounts dedicated to publicly shaming bad parking jobs are becoming very popular.

The latest is a 桑拿会所 account called ‘YVR’s Worst Parking‘ and it’s dedicated to sharing pictures from people around Vancouver showing bad park jobs.

The account has already gained more than 1,700 followers and is run by a man named Brian LaBelle, who also runs the account for Edmonton’s worst parking.

He told Global Edmonton “I don’t really have a problem shaming, it’s more embarrassing than anything.”

“I don’t really see it harmfully impacting somebody’s self-esteem if they’re caught parking across three stalls. They might be embarrassed, their friends might tease them about it a little bit and hopefully they don’t do it in the future.”

Dom, who helps run the Facebook Pages of S**t Parkers of Kelowna, Vernon, Greater Vancouver and Victoria, did not want to appear on camera because he said they usually deal with people who don’t necessarily care how they act and behave in public.

“We’ve had people uttering threats and things like that,” he said.

He started this social media venture about eight months ago and was surprised by how popular it became.

“People were submitting left, right and centre,” he said.

The primary goal, according to Dom, is not to shame people but to get people to think about what they’re doing.

“We have received pleas from people for help,” he said.

Other social media channels do not just focus on parking, but driving.

Bad Drivers of Vancouver is a very popular YouTube channel, run by a Richmond resident.

The creator, Sean, who didn’t want his last name used, also has a 桑拿会所 account.

But he does not think Vancouver is the worst place for drivers.

“Vancouver definitely has it’s share of really bad drivers,” he said. “But in every big city there’s bad drivers.”

What do you think about this idea? Is it harmless fun or inappropriate? Let us know in the comments!
