Only two of these vehicles are entitled to be parked in this space

An unrepentant old lady climbed out of the car. “You’re parked in a motorcycle space” said the MMW.

“Yes” said the old woman.

“That’s not a motorcycle.”

“No.”

She thought for a moment. “I’m only going to the cash point.”

And shuffled off, pants on fire (well, they ought to have been … or she takes more than 15 minutes to get cash out).

We debated the most appropriate reprisal. Personally, I’m all for taking two of the wheels off and leaving a note which says “your vehicle has been modified to have the appropriate number of wheels for parking in a motorcycle space” but lockable nuts prevented this.

  1. Looks more like a yellow box junction to me – obviously it’s quite normal to park in one of those!

  2. Neither of the closer bikes look to be parked within the lines.We just park where we want here. Unless the police shout at you through the speakers on top of their cars.And drivers feel they can get out and move your bike to a different place if they think it helps them park better.I found my scooter in the middle of the road one morning.

  3. I hate it when people shuffle my bike along the parking space! But it seems quite normal these days 😦
