8.16pm and the council still ticketing in force ;)

 

Unlucky Focus owner got one. Red Beemer drove off with it still attached.

 

This road is notorious for DYL parkers dashing into Tesco Express quickly or using the cash machine. There are four 30min free parking bays literally round the corner which they seemingly ignore.

Councils work around the clock to earn a lot of money! I know of other more fulfilling careers that result in better intake of money and the job seems to be more fun too, but its certainly not called Civil Enforcement Officer... although they may dress up like one if you ask really nice...

Serves them right in my opinion. No sympathy for people who park on double yellows as they are usually obstructing something.

Should hire an Ariel Atom and park it there, they have to place them on the windscreen, would be quite funny watching him have nowhere to put it.

Cover the VIN and license plate. As they are not allowed to interfere with a vehicle, then they are unable to offer a ticket as they are unable to verify its identity and therefore the owner.

:lol: can imagine going to your car at 3am to see the clamper writing a ticket you ask " what the !Removed! you doing at my car?"
And he says "well erm, i couldn't sleep, so eh thought id clamp you instead" "drain the additional revenue from your pocket while your sleeping because i can "

Trucker mate of mine was ticketed in the middle of the night for parking up in a layby. They had to climb up on the bumper to stick the ticket to the screen!  :rolleyes:  :)

The answer to that is surely barbed wire or spikes on bumpers? I would be tempted to put them under the wiper blades too :P
