While staying in the lines is definitely a challenging skill to obtain for a kindergartener, it would seem obvious that people would get the hang of it by the time they reach adulthood and are old enough to get a driver’s license. But that’s surely not the case for everyone. It’s certainly annoying to see people parking across two parking spots anywhere, but it’s even worse to spot a terrible parking job next to a handicapped parking spot.
A police department in Southlake, Texas came up with a simple yet genius solution to this problem and are trolling people who park terribly with these witty fliers.
The Southlake Department of Public Safety came up with a really creative idea for how to fight terrible parking. They made a flier with a coloring page for the drivers who can’t park properly to learn staying in the lines.
They leave coloring pages for drivers so they can practice staying in the lines
While some policemen would simply fine the drivers who can’t manage to park properly, Southlake police go the extra mile by teaching them a lesson. “We noticed you had a little trouble staying in the lines when you parked next to a handicapped space… maybe if you practice coloring our patch and staying in the lines here, it could help you avoid citations in the future,” they warn in the flier.
They also urged people to drive and park kindly in a Twitter post
“We try to avoid snark and sass (we REALLY do), but sometimes our fair citizens make it hard,” Southlake DPS said in a Twitter post. “Please stay in the lines when you park ESPECIALLY if it’s next to a handicapped spot or you might be the recipient of one of our new fliers.”
