A driver has left residents stunned by the worst attempt at parking they've ever seen.
The car, a white BMW, was photographed parked half in and half out of the bay in Gandhi Way in the Old Town area of Hull city centre.
Despite the shoddy parking, the driver had still gone to the trouble of paying for a ticket and placing it on the windscreen of the car.
A passerby posted a picture of the car on the Hull Traffic and Travel Facebook page, writing: "And the best parking award goes to... Do these people get their licences out of a lucky dip bag?"
The images caused a stir, with one person responding: "That is possibly the worst attempt at parking I’ve ever seen."
Another added: ”They’ve actually got out of that to get a ticket, walked back to it and put the ticket on the dash and walked away without realising it’s literally a mile off the kerb?!"
People also questioned the legality of the parking, with one person writing: "Its causing an obstruction so hopefully the clown who parked it gets it towed away.”
Another posted: ”Don’t you still get fined if you're not in the lines anyway, even when you pay for a ticket?"
According to the Highway Code, drivers should park no further than 50cm away from a kerb.
The Hull City Council website states that drivers using on-street car parking spaces may receive a penalty charge notice if they fail to park within a marked bay.
