THERE are calls for a Facebook page publicly shaming Toowoomba motorists who drive or park badly to be closed down.

Concerns over the online vigilante site reached fever pitch this week when photos of a mother and her baby were posted on the Toowoomba's Bad Parkers and Drivers Facebook page.

The photos showed the woman parked in a disability park at the Toowoomba Hospital.

They remain on the page.

The Chronicle was contacted by several people claiming the use of the photos was a form of harassment.

The page has more than 6800 likes.

Since being launched it has been criticised for displaying the number plates of cars featured on the page.

Has Toowoomba's Bad Parkers and Drivers taken its vigilante actions too far?
