Nice motor, shame about the selfish parking: The posher the car, the more arrogant the driver?

By Chris Parsons

Call that parking?: A Ferrari 355 owners dumps his supercar half into a disabled bay in an unknown car park

It is a driving habit guaranteed to enrage even the most docile motorist, but these supercar owners show such bad bay parking they have been exposed on an internet gallery of shame.

Whether it's parking across multiple spaces, double yellow lines or disabled bays, mega-rich motorists have had their appalling parking revealed.

The drivers may escape punishment from the authorities, but their flagrant disregard for road rules has been shared by internet users branding them 'selfish and inconsiderate'.

Must do better: A Rolls Royce owner clearly wasn't bothered about other drivers when they took up nearly four bays with this atrocious parking

There are more than 6,000 posts on the 'Bad Parking' thread of the Pistonheads website - a forum where car fans exchange views on the latest motoring news.

In one picture a Rolls Royce Oracle is seen parked diagonally across two spaces in a packed underground Waitrose car park.

Another picture, one of many involving high-powered, expensive supercars, shows a second single-minded Rolls Royce driver taking up nearly FOUR spaces.

Motorists in Rolls-Royces, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Bentleys are all being shamed by users who have photographed them in the act.

Parking fail: A white Lamborghini Murcielago manages to park across two parent and child spaces

Many of the pictures show arrogant motorists shamelessly parking in disabled bays - often extremely badly.

One owner of a Ferrari 355 clearly dosn't have the parking ability to match his bank balance, as his yellow supercar is lazily left taking up just a quarter of a disabled parking space.

Are you leaving that there?: A Porsche 911 driver clearly wasn't concentrating when they dumped their silver supercar in this disabled rooftop space

Motorists on the Pistonheads website have laid into the 'selfish' supercar owners who park across disabled bays and on double yellow lines.

One member, going by the name Goldmember1, said: 'It seems if you are so rich you can park how you like.'

Another member added: 'The inconsiderate one straddles his steed across multiple parking spaces, thinking for some unknown reason that he/she is far more important than anyone else.'
