A parking blunder has been spotted in Mount Maunganui yesterday - with a driver's attempts to squeeze a white sedan into a too-tight spot being snapped by a passer-by.

The badly-parked vehicle is squeezed into a parallel spot on a busy road just inches away from the car in front of it - after apparently hitting it - with its rear left wheel on the pavement.

The blunder follows another parking faux pas, with a terribly parked black SUV snapped in the upmarket Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn baffling social media users.

The picture, which has been shared on Facebook, shows the car parked on a diagonal in the middle of the road, with its front end just over the edge of the bus-stop, right in front of yellow lines.

The car was spotted about 4pm outside Astrolabe bar on Maunganui Rd.

"Apparently he tried to parallel park, hit the rubbish bun and then hit the car in front," the woman who photographed the vehicle said.

"The driver then locked his car and proceeded across the road to the backpackers.

"It was creating a lot of interest as people waited to see if he would come back."
