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 !

Yes - apart from being very obvious visually, the steering must have been vibrating badly

Not just the steering. I had a small (barely visible) bulge in a tyre once and at low speed it felt like somebody had hold of the head rest and was shaking the seat about.

That tyre isn’t even round any more. It’s a dodecahedron.
There should be an instant loss of licence for that kind of stupidity. Also dump them in a hole somewhere

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.
