Everyone hates it when we see some douche park illegally, but none of us ever do anything about it, right? Well, this man, Jeff Orlick of Jackson Heights, New York IS doing something about it. And it’s hilarious (and probably illegal).
You see, Jeff is sick of seeing people in Queens parking illegally in handicap spots and in front of fire hydrants so he’s become something of a parking vigilante.
Whenever he sees someone flaunting the parking laws he stops and slaps a “I park like an A–-HOLE” bumper sticker on their car.
He’s even selling these stickers on Etsy in the hopes that other people will follow his lead.
Reports the New York Post…
“If people park like a–holes, they should know about it,” Orlick said. “You see these things every day that are wrong and people could pass by or take a picture and put it on Instagram or you can do something and make a difference.”
Orlick, a community activist, said that he made the simple, but strongly-messaged stickers last year for himself and since then has slapped them on bumpers of less than 10 cars parked along Jackson Heights Streets.
“I want to be absolutely sure that these guys are a–holes before I put a sticker on their car,” he said, adding that if a driver parks in front of a fire hydrant for more than an hour “they deserve to be reprimanded” and to be “treated like an a–hole.”
Of course, as I mentioned this is kind of illegal, but Orlick isn’t too concerned about that…
“It has to be done,” he said. “I am not afraid of what will happen. It’s for a good cause.”
He added, “My real fear is that people will use these stickers too frivolously.”
With every bumper sticker Orlick sends out he includes the message, “Be responsible. Be safe. Be sure.”
Now all he needs is a good vigilante nickname. Parking Man? Super Sticker? Damn, where’s Cisco Ramon when you need him?
