Not strictly bad parking related but this is my new favourite facebook page / youtbe channel:

I really enjoyed that. Some of those grade A bellend drivers need to put their mouth shut!

Another bellend dashcam owner here (two infact, front and rear). Unfortunately, in these times of crash for cash, hit and runs, generally unscrupulous behaviour by less than fine upstanding individuals, I feel it necessary to protect my own interests.  I would never forgive myself if some cunt did a crash for cash on me and I didn't have the necessary evidence to fuck over his claim.

 

RE the parking thing, parking over two spaces gets royally on my nerves, but then, even in car parks with small spaces its not exactly difficult to get out of your car without damaging the one next to you.  So I feel they're the ones who really need the kicking, for making twatty parking necessary in the first place.

I was working near a station on a rural rd where smart cars seemed to be the vehicle of choice, one owner persisted in slotting it into gaps between other cars but parking front in rather than in parallel.
Obviously this must have miffed several somebodies because as I was going passed one day there had been a shuffle about leaving them a gap of about an inch at each side for them to open their door in.....

These free style parkers have such important business that they have not got time to park properly.  Their other favourite trick is to park on the marked crossings near supermarket store entrances whilst they *quickly try several cards in the cashpoint before going off in a huff.

Had a great one yesterday, parked in approx 50ft bay busy shopping street, one of those "1 hour" jobs actually cut into the wide pavement so it is off the road lanes.   LWB Tranny van at the back, nice and tight to the kerb, myself just in front of him in our T25.   It left about 8ft in front of me but the front of the layby was not square, it was angled.  

 

Basically you could just have put a motorcycle in there.... 

 

Along comes orange-face in her X-Trail, council face-lift hairdo and ear-rings like the aerial on my nan's old portable telly....  

 

Bear in mind I am at this point, 2 up in the van, indicating to pull out, on full lock and engine running.  She crashes over the pavement, drops down into the bay and tries to leave the Nissan about 4mm from my front bumper with its arse out in the road, Cashpoint Parking Light (hazards) going and gets out, flaps about with her handbag and locks the car. 

 

Mrs Rocker winds down her side window and gently informs Ms X-Trail that we are Going.   It was worth the slight delay to see her have to flap her handbag, find the remote, get back in and reverse out over a payment across an oncoming traffic flow she couldn't possibly see (I kept an eye on that myself, partly because I am considerate and partly because I didn't want any resultant explosion of plastic shattering alongside my van). 

 

Now, either she was fucking blind or just an inconsiderate pig.  Or both.  Either way, the onset maturity of not throwing a wobbler like I would once have done wound her up far more than it did me.  Or Mrs Rocker, who learned some nice new Jeremey Kyle show phrases.

I should have had the presence of mind to take a photo this morning...

Behind our bakery shop in Barrow town centre is a communal delivery yard, with pedestrian access at several points.  People therefore use it as unlimited free parking while they go to the shops/for a coffee/for a night out.  The surface of the yard is littered with LOADING ONLY in six-foot white capitals, and all around the edges are signs reinforcing the message.  Our local traffic wardens are pretty good, and will ignore vans doing actual deliveries while pouncing on (inevitably) Audis and BMWs abandoned in the middle of the yard.  The middle of the yard is a big open space for a reason: artics turn in it. 

This morning there was a silver 1-series, bang in the middle, precisely ON the lettering.  It had clearly been there all night, which makes a bit of sense if you've had a few drinks and don't want to drive home.  However, Mr 1-series really should have applied brain a couple of hours earlier and left the car at home, then he wouldn't have got a ticket this morning.

You'd think some van drivers have nothing better to do than go collaring wardens...

End of our street goes into a T junction onto a major road.   There are shops each side about 50 yards from the Give Way signs, these have parallel parking bays each side but leave enough road width for ample two way traffic.   There is a goods yard behind the left-hand flank of shops, again like Eddy's example, mainly for artics to turn and other goods vehicles to deliver.   

 

Unfortunately they have long since given up trying to do so as the single access road to the area is rammed with pavement-parking twats and there is never a warden around to sort them out.   Hence lorries now drive past the shops from the major road end and do their drops in a one-way side road which is a complete ball-ache for everybody.   On top of that, the council decided to multi-colour the road surface in slabs of pinkish grey, black and concrete.   This gives pedestrians the illusion that they can wander freely out between parked cars as long as they are on the "right" colour.  

 

On top of all this you get four-way flashing knobheads suddenly stopping in front of you in case the bloke in the Fiesta next to the betting shop is actually going to drive off and leave them a parking space.   Riding a bike past this parade of door-opening, U-turning wretches clutching Subway bags, estate agent folders and Vape supplies is like surfing on a radio-active shark-infested tsunami.      

 

Someone will get hurt there one day but all the council do is put more street furniture up to confuse pedestrians and clutter the view. 

 

The most galling part of the whole place (which I have to drive, ride or walk by in order to eat, work or post a parcel) is that there is a 140 space FREE car park less than 45 seconds walk around the corner.   I think fuel may soon have to be rationed, governed by use of a Fitbit.....

Outside my house yesterday morning. I live next door to a pub. They were obviously over the limit when they abandoned it.7591570509d2d6aca0348ceb1170eab8.jpg
