Park like a dick? Prepare to be 'dicketed'

Auckland is a car city, and those of us who commute on a day-to-day basis are regularly privy to the joys of aggressive horn-honking and tailgating SUVs. But what's more infuriating than cars on the road is when cars are off it, with a number of drivers seemingly feeling at liberty to park however, whenever and wherever they want, as evidenced by this elegant example on Queen Street last month. 

With many rule-abiding drivers exasperated at the low quality of parking on our streets, two FCB creatives—Peter Vegas and Leisa Wall—have taken things into their own hands with 'Parking Dickets', a new product for victims of bad parking to strike back.

The 'dicket', as it's been lovingly dubbed, is a 13.12cm, flesh coloured piece of paper that can be issued to those who, well, park like dicks (13.12cm being the average length of an erect penis, apparently).

After issuing a 'dicket', people are encouraged to send their 'dicket' pic to the 'Dicket Wardens' who will upload it to the Parking Dickets website for everyone to see.

A pad of 20 'dickets' is also available to purchase for $10 through the website, which it describes as "a small price to pay for the satisfaction of bringing a few dicks to justice".

Social responsibility: Facebook in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque terror attack

Social responsibility: Facebook in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque terror attack

Friday 15 March started out as a day of hope in New Zealand. Social media was awash with posts, images and stories about the nation’s teenagers taking to the streets to demand action on climate change. Tens of thousands of school students took part in the demonstrations, which stretched the length of the country from Southland to the Bay of Islands. However, by late afternoon, social media was filled with a completely different nationwide movement: an outpouring of grief about the Christchurch mosque terror attack.
