Assuming they have a blue badge, I don’t have a problem with that one. The driver may have needed to park over to swing their door open if there was another car parked in the next slot when they arrived.
But on this thread we just......know.
Yep its true, we can definitely jump to conclusions.

Not content with parking the P&J RS hard on the left line of that legit bay, they've abandoned it in the corner plot. If I had a smaller car, I'd have been really, really tempted to squeeze in.
redcard Time to hand in the PH badge hehe - that's an ST not an RS getmecoat

Still bad parking though.

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 !

A bit late to this one, but I can't believe the driver ignored that (can't have not noticed). A couple of months ago somebody changed lanes alongside me and forced me into the curb, it caused the smallest bulge and I got it changed straight away, you just don't risk things like that (£100 or a blowout and possibly killing youself), the tyre wasn't even a month old frown.
For anybody interested the car that forced me into the curb didn't stop or even raise a hand of apologies, not even a flash of the hazards, probably didn't realise, it was a Pegeout estate.

I can. I know tons of people who barely look at anything in their cars. If it wasn't for MoTs they'd be all on bald tyres with knackered brakes and no working lights.

Someone at work was shocked to find out that the advisories they got for tyres being close to the legal limit at the last years MoT became a fail at the next one.

'Why didn't they tell me they needed changing?'

I’ll accept that you made an unfortunate typo, and meant Peugeot estate, but it reads as if you meant, “Typical, a Peugeot estate, who else would have forced me into the kerb?”
If you did mean that, and I’m quite ready to believe that you didn’t, can you give me a reason?
ETA, I don’t wish to argue the toss over kerb or curb, please don’t take me to task for using kerb.

Please accept my sincere apologies for any offence caused. Believe me that wasn’t my intention.

You certainly didn’t cause me any offence, and an apology is definitely not necessary, I just thought that Peugeot drivers had come into the firing line for some reason, rather like it used to be Audi drivers, or any German marque come to that.
When I was driving almost every day of the week, unlike now, it wasn’t rocket science to quickly realise, that aside from me, all drivers were lamentably dire, no matter what they were driving.

Parked at an angle to the kerb? Check.
Blocking pedestrian crossing? Check.
On double yellow lines? Check.
Parked across a road junction? Check.
Abandoned in the rush hour in the direction of travel? Check.

Just for clarification, I am talking about the silver Mercedes, not the white van on the service road behind.

You'd hope. Otherwise I think we have hot a new low in self-entitlement.
