I understand your thinking, but some people would see that parking and key it down the side to 'teach you a lesson'. You're damned if you do and damned if you don't unfortunately!

Yes it is, just. Point being if you were parking considerately you would park in the centre of the space as I did, not right up to and touching the line. Child seat is in the rear N/S position. No way I'm getting my DD in without having to move the car, or a passenger for that matter.

If it's the car on the right then it is clearly covering 2 spaces, you can see the white line under the bumper. The car on the left is parked within the lines

You've made me sad. And even more paranoid.

Where i live, above a row of shops, parking is atrocious. The carpet shop directly below tries to monopolise the side road, the disabled extra wide space out the front of the carpet shop..........everyone sees it as "their" space to park in. So thats the shared flat next door that has 5 cars think it's their space. The moronic family across the road who live on the end of block of terraces, who have a whole road to play with, think it's their space. The polish family along the block from us who even though only two people drive, have 4 cars, think this space is theirs. And my wife is disabled but she can never get in this space.

Then, it seems the allocated parking for the shops and the flats above them, is public parking for everyone who lives within a 20 minute walk. I am not kidding when i say i once followed a guy who parked outside the shop downstairs, then walked 1 mile to his house just becausethere is a cctv camera outside to watch his car.
Before now i have had to park my car 1/4 of a mile away and walk because i cant get parked anywhere near where i live.


Not forgetting the half wit who after 3 attempts to reverse into a space outside the shops, gave up and promptly shot into the space.....occupied by the wifes 8 week old Qashqai. Its just a scuff mate, my buddy can fix that no problem. Err no, the whole bumper is trashed. Nah dog, it's just a bit of paint.
He tried to vanish to avoid paying through his insurance, we found him and so did the insurance company.

Muzzer as it's a disable space for your use, you should be able to call the council and get them ticketed?
We've had to do this for twits who park in our disable resident bay made for my mother, slow to react but it has worked, fewer people park there now in comparison to last year.

I don't get it though, unless there's something physically or neurologically wrong with you, I see no reason why you need to park in a disable bay for which you don't even have a badge!!!

Very true but then you don't really know what was going on on the other side of the car i.e. he could have parked in the middle of the space that was available if another plonker had parked on the line for no reason

And I swear those Picasso's are always driven by the large or the elderly could be that they needed more space to get out on that side!
