A beautiful example.

Here we can see a brilliant piece of complete dim-wittery,which goes to prove once again that crap parking is not just the preserve of the British, instead of parking in the bay our American friend here decided to prove the point by parking across 2 disabled bays and thereby winning the “Cock of the day ” award.

Inappropriate parking is everywhere.

On a visit to a local hospital,I was struck by the fact that inappropriate parking is everywhere around us today,it is not just at Bradwell hospital but all over the place. It seems that drivers are just becoming lazy in their approach to parking.

A prime example being the BMW in the above picture,whoever it was parked by has decided to leave it in its own “created” parking space rather than using one of the plenty of empty spaces that were available.

As for the two vehicles in the above photo,words cannot describe the level of disdain that these drivers must have for the rules of the carpark.They have not only parked in front of the locked gateway they are parked on a zebra crossing meaning anyone unfortunate to have to walk along the pavement has to step into the roadway to pass.It also appears that someone has moved or taken upon themselves to move the “no parking”cones that were there.

Sorry for the long post but this sort of inconsiderate behaviour makes my blood boil, it doesn’t take a moment to think of others around you in this world who may not be as fortunate as you,a little bit of care and consideration would go a long way to making things easier for everyone.

I do have examples of this type of terrible parking from all over the country but these couple of examples from a local hospital really set me off.

The Highway Code rules for waiting and parking.

Rule 244..(Again) You MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.

Two examples just showing the total lack of consideration by the selfish drivers around the country.

There is so much wrong here..

Not only is this @DPD_uk Van parked on a pavement it it parked over a dropped kerb as well as being parked too close to a junction.

I don’t think this driver could possibly have got it wrong on so many levels by accident, at times it makes me wonder how on Earth these people manage to pass their driving test.

Rule 243

DO NOT stop or park:
near a school entrance
anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services
at or near a bus or tram stop or taxi rank
on the approach to a level crossing/tramway crossing
opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space
near the brow of a hill or hump bridge
opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle
where you would force other traffic to enter a tram lane
where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users and powered mobility vehicles
in front of an entrance to a property
on a bend
where you would obstruct cyclists’ use of cycle facilities
except when forced to do so by stationary traffic.

Rule 238.

You MUST NOT wait or park on yellow lines during the times of operation shown on nearby time plates (or zone entry signs if in a Controlled Parking Zone) – see ‘Traffic signs’ and ‘Road markings’. Double yellow lines indicate a prohibition of waiting at any time even if there are no upright signs. You MUST NOT wait or park, or stop to set down and pick up passengers, on school entrance markings (see ‘Road markings’) when upright signs indicate a prohibition of stopping.
