Did anyone say "tyre damage" ?

School run Mum parking? I see about 10 a day like that as I walk my daughter to and from school, the local tyre fitters and wheel refurb people must love them.

That said I flagged a woman down the other day who was driving along with a complete flat, apparently she knew all about it and was going to get it sorted, didn't want to engage. It was about a mile to the nearest tyre place and it wouldn't have been open. I'd have been more than willing to chuck the spare on for her.

Woman pulled into a single story car park in an old mini dragging a stationary rear wheel with her, I flagged her down and told her the wheel was ceased, probably brake stuck on. She said "Is that dangerous", I explained it was and as she was parking anyway, call a garage, she thanked me and drove out again still pulling the stationary wheel along the ground

Just how did anyone, in possession of a UK driving licence, position (I can'y say "park") their vehicle like that and think that it is, on any level, or indeed any planet, acceptable, let alone competent?

Someone who may require this thread. ' Student parks car in Bristol for a festival and is still searching for it a week later'.

In a "m/c" bay (I'm not up on motorbikes but know this isn't one) and conveniently blocking one of those parcel collection lockers.

Heard about that on the radio today, offered a reward of £100 now for information in locating the car, obviously not clever enough to speak to the taxi company he used to take him from where he arked to the festival for them to check their log for that day rolleyes

Tesco near Buttershaw - I think it belongs to someone working at Coral Windows as it's always there...

The local Morrison's. I guess they're used to parking a 60s Cadillac.

It's not so much causing problems, it's the ignorance and self -entitlement.

It’d be tempting to hire a couple of long wheelbase Transits for a weekend and park them in the spaces either side of him from Friday lunch to Monday.
