Many have paved over their front garden for that very reason. In fact it is of epidemic proportions in cities.

The sign behind asks people not to park there, this particular car has an allocated space next to the black van, it's empty.

Same woman who has history for parking outside the school 5 minutes (slow) walk away with the car on the pavement, on zig zags and in a bus stop (all at the same time).

Couple of tards today, both so common these days.



This one is a common occurance on this corner, OK not much traffic, but even so.

Not so okay for pedestrians though.

Today At IKEA selfish bd parks petrol car in electric car bay BUT pretends to plug it in by throwing the charge plug under the car,never seen that before. Rear passenger just pushes the trolley away. Bet he would have blown his top if a trolley was anywhere near his car.

Shopping or picking up cash?

If it's cash as far as I'm concerned they can park where they want.


On an unrelated note is anyone else getting a bit fed up seeing cars parked 'wrong' yet the bays are plainly too small, so how else could they park?

That isn't really 'badly parked' and shows a lack of thought on the poster rather than the parker.
Agreed. Those security van guys risk a whack on the head or worse every time they collect or deliver cash, anyone who begrudges them parking as close as possible to the store should stop and think about that.

Stores have delivery areas for deliveries, surely parking the money van there also would be better from a safety stand point.

They're often round the back, out of sight. Perfect place to be boxed in and ambushed. Out the front on the road with loads of passers by is safer.

Our local Sainsbury's keep the gates locked, could call and tell them they will be there in five, standby to let us in. At the end of the day if they are going to rob them I suppose they will.

Much better to be on view though, its less likely to happen.
