    Evil and probably extremely illegal. :)

    Maybe something along these lines:
    Code:
    http://www.youparklikeanasshole.com/
    Stick "You Park Like an Asshole" notes under the wipers of a bunch of cars with something like, "To find out who thinks you park like an asshole, go to whateversite.com" written on them. Once they're on the site, tell them that they have to fill out a zip or email submit offer to find out. Monetized.

    EDIT: If you live in a large city, you could easily create a brand: WorstPittsburghDrivers.com Lots of different directions to take this kind of method.

    ha ha yes it is highly illegal :p

    your method is great and could bring in some good cash if you just do it whenever you see a car on your daily journey around and about

    What about taking a picture of their horrid parking job and adding it to a website then give em a piece of paper saying "We uploaded a picture of your shitty parking job to blah.com, go there for instructions on removal" and say type your email and use a c-peac email submit

    would i need to have an i frame to have multible offer.

    Could say some thing like.
    " due to your bad parking you have a fine of $XX. but to clear the fine and wipe you off our data base you will have to fill in these forms."
    The forms will be 5-6 cpa submit offers.

    How could i set up the 5-6 offer in a row?

    I must say, this is a fucking awesome idea. I usually get the tickets saying you obstructed a fire truck because of bad parking when Im parked down a dead end road!?! I'm going to have to try this out and hope that the person doesnt walk back to their car before I have left lol

    Well, yet again, I am surprised at the level of ingenuity of the members here. This is a sick ass idea. People want to get out of embarassment and this is a little bit of blackmail if you tell them they need to enter their email/zip to get it off the website. What a clever idea.

    it drives me mad when i come across bad parking, esp when you get people who park in 2 spaces. It was sunday night i saw so many people parking badly, thought to myself there must be a way to make money from this.

    attach a note under their wipers:

    your name is included is pittsburghworstparkers.com
    Pl. go to the site for details.

    on that site write something like if you believe that your name is included by mistake or tat it was your first mistake then pl. submit your email below and your name will be removed.

    make a landing page with cakeslice which iframes an email submit and make some background from games like roadrash etc.it would definately work because nobody will want their names in city's worst drivers list.
