No, but we have multiple dumb driver threads.

We do have fire hydrants in the UK. They’re just usually underground, and indicated by a yellow sign with a black H on.

Two from Sainsbury's today, not as bad as some on here but if you're going to buy/lease a lump of car at least try to park it in the bay!!!

Increasingly bigger cars vs smaller spaces ?

Not really, the Jag was parked in a bay with a post protecting a tree so I guess their thinking was "well I've got it as far in the space as I can!" And not "Hhhmmmm that space is no where near big enough for my massive XJ, maybe I should find a better space!" Especially annoying as the other side of the dividing road there were spaces, and the Audi had backed in and left a load of space behind his car, enough for the shorts wearing, perfectly groomed bloke who was driving it to stand behind his car and unload his trolley into the boot!!!

Nearly 3 parking spaces. Slightly annoying, but with how bad drivers are in the US, I can't be too mad..

The owner will be on later asking people to agree that they were not parked on DYL’s.

Other people do it, etc...

If they pulled forward approx 10ft there would be no problems as they would be parked infront of a small car sales place.
Aside from being half on the pavement, there's nothing wrong with their parking. You might prefer someone not to park there, but it's a public road, they're well past the dropped kerb, and not blocking your drive.

If you cant turn left, go right. I have had to do that at times where I live.

That's there quite a lot. If I'm thinking it's just a tiny bit further up from Victoria Gate casino. Ironically, I thought of this thread when I saw it a few weeks ago.

Made me laugh in Sainsbury’s today.

No parking sensors? No problem use the bollard.

Genius.

I have no desire to be contentious, but what about if you turn right, and you’re looking at a solid brick wall as the road ends 20 metres from your drive?
Let me guess, you’ll have to do a four or five point turn, to go in the direction that you wanted to, but couldn't, because someone was making life difficult, legally or otherwise.

Also why towbars come in handy.

Badly designed drive is not the neighbours fault...when planning mine the highways office reccommended putting the sloping kerb further out than I had planned to make sure drive would be useable.

Lets be honest, that'll be owned by an 80 year old bloke who's had it since new, bought it when he retired...
