I often wonder why if bikes don’t have front plates why don’t cars?
Have a look at some pictures of older bikes, the front number plates were basically a blunt vertical edge , not very pedestrian friendly in an accident.
Referred to bacon slicers but doesn’t answer the question.
On the vast majority of cars there is plenty of room to mount a front plate and they are mounted nice and flat , easily read from the front and not dangerous. There is no reason for cars not to have one.

As for the car allegedly landing on the tracks at Stirling station, the only way I’d believe that is if I was standing on the platform and saw it happen.
If you go to the Daily Record website you can watch the video of it being recovered. If that doesn’t prove it’s real then I doubt nothing will.

So was the damage caused to the platform copes during the recovery operation. I obviously imagined my son being called out on Wednesday evening to assist in repairing the non-existent damage... rolleyes

Popped over to MB World on Sunday for a look around. Very nice to see one of these in the metal but shame the owner is utterly terrible at parking. Straddling two bays, probably on purpose and then about 2ft from the front of the space!

To be fair, if that was parked in 1 space, driver would never be able to open the door far enough to climb out over the sill.

If I was parking that in a public car park full of lard arse SUVs driven by the lard arsed slobs that make up the Great British Public I'd do the same, although I'd be extremely reluctant to leave it there at all. Doing it with some disposable 3 series marks you out as an utter self obsessed bellend, but a car that rare needs stewardship as much as ownership and it's the owners moral responsibility to stop Karen putting a crease in it with her 120KG arse.

Some years ago I saw something similar on the A90 dual carriageway Portlethen south of Aberdeen, it had those metal barriers both sides, and at junctions where you could exit right, they came together and went down to the ground, a woman had misjudged her speed, skidded, hit the barriers sideways on and slid up them and was straddling the barriers like the car is straddling the pavement here.

Lucky it was rush hour and she had maximum exposure biggrin

I too saw something similar. Many years ago in Cambridge I was turning right at a set of traffic lights and there was a Reliant Robin in front of me. Lights went green and Robin set off but turned too soon and the car got beached on the kerb of the traffic island, rocking gently back and forth with his front wheel spinning aimlessly in the air.

Similar.

In snow a couple of years back on the A34 heading out of Walsall, at the Bell lights I watched a young lass come flying out of her drive, across a lane of traffic and attempt to get onto the other carriage way. She simply aimed at the snow piled in between, failed to make it, got the underside of the car stuck between both carriageways and just sat there, tipping back and forth while revving her engine to no avail.
