10/10 for the screen seal having a fight with the rear wiper. Good to see those hub caps are tied on too, bet they're worth a good £0.99 on eBay!

Wife’s £300 school run stbox must have developed an ability to actively repel any cars near it.

We parked first and clearly nobody had the plums to risk being fully alongside.

Is that planks of wood rather than a proper dropped kerb?

Yep, this citizen is well known for parking in this way.

Why not park on the road, cant see any yellow lines, isnt driving over a non dropped kerb an offence or something.

Not parking per se, but the damage was probably done driving into kerbs while parking...





"a member of Derby City Council's public protection team pulled the driver over. He advised the driver to head straight to a nearby garage to have a new tyre fitted." - should not have been allowed to drive it another foot with it in that state !

This guy was featured in a documentary a few years ago. He always parks that way.

In a restaurant car park in Kent, driver got out, I said,
“Could you move over a bit, to give someone else a chance?”
Driver said, “Not my problem.”

The car on the right of the photo is over the line as well so I doubt you'd get two cars in those spaces.

Agreed, but if the Citroën had moved to the left of the photo, and then the one on the right had left the car park, there would have been two open spaces, but the berk driving the Citroën just blithely straddled the white line, and walked away.
