^^ I should point out that my mate wasn't being an awkward NIMBY knob (he's not like that at all) by shopping this selfish idiot to the cops, it was more that he has a couple of elderly neighbours and at least one isn't in great health so if the paramedics needed to get him out of the house via the back door then they couldn't if it was blocked by some lazy twat parking there.

Now obviously if you cant get the parking right then really you really shouldn't be allowed out onto the road with a tonne or so of complex machinery.

 

That's why I drive two and a half tonnes of simple machinery.

And I park it how I fucking please, I have you know.

I'm really looking forward to meet whoever thinks I really shouldn't be allowed to do so.

Why use the large vacant parking space when instead you can park your hideous truck in the centre of the service road and save yourself a 10 yard walk to get your chips?

Hazard lights on though, so it's fine.  The truck was labelled BARBARIAN, appropriately enough.

See that gate there? Oh, it's nothing important, just access to all the back gardens for my entire street.

 

 

oops the wind seems to have blown the gate quite hard into the side of your illegally parked mocha

I have to be pretty careful parking the Volvo as it seems to be exactly the same size as your typical parking space, sometimes a bit too long.

The Tesco Express across the road from there always provides unorthodox parking solutions too.

Oh yes, the muppets parking at crazy angles sticking 6 feet out into the road. But hey, it's only the A23, second most popular route to Gatwick, not at all busy!

My town centre.

 

36598206691_ed1def492b_b.jpg

 

This is at the end of a row of ~10 parking spaces outside a post office. Almost always full but there's more right around the corner to the left.

The whole street is double yellow on both sides. The workman's Citroen had to be moved to an equally illegal spot shortly after I took this picture as a 7.5 tonner got stuck.

 

Out of the above pictures, only the van and the Picanto at the back of the third shot weren't showing blue badges.

 

Disabled badges don't make illegal parking okay. :(

They don't make it okay.

They do make much of it legal for a few hours.

Every ones got one it seems.

I don't understand this.

 

The 'justification' for double yellows is parking there would cause an obstruction, well it doesn't matter if the driver is disabled the car is still an obstruction.

I have a blue badge but never park on double yellows or anywhere that may cause an obstruction or difficulty for other road users.  It is swings and roundabouts though.  Non-blue badge holders regularly park on pavements, forcing pedestrians, women with pushchairs and mobility scooters on to the road.  I blame the unthinking masses.

I can't argue with that either.

If they're that bad at parking how are they are driving?

Today it's Scarborough. All down the from not is double yellows but there's loads of cars parked on them. Sodding blue badges...
