EDMONTON -- Two Edmontonians have taken to social media to mock bad parkers in their city.

Daniel Huber and Brian LaBelle say their Facebook group and Twitter account to vent about selfish motorists, and now they are getting more attention.

"I was out one day and saw a park job that ruined everyone's day," Huber said. "I gave the guy the 'what the hell' arms and he just smirked and walked into a building."

He says he took a picture, posted it to his Facebook feed "and 50 likes later I thought it would be an amusing thing to start a Facebook group, and here we are."

LaBelle, who teamed up with Huber to run the Twitter side of the campaign after seeing his Facebook group, sees the posts as both social activism and straight-up fun.

"I don't think there are many people who intentionally set out to make things more difficult for others," he said. "So, we are just making people aware they might be (crappy parkers) and hopefully having them start to consider other people."
