Gah! You go out for the afternoon, take the children round the shops and come home to THIS.
We live on a road that has a Tesco Express. Due to concerns about safety and poor parking (particularly when you think about lines of sight reversing out of our drives) Walsall Council laid down some yellow lines to indicate where it is now not OK to park. I can understand people ignoring the yellow lines because they are in a hurry and think they can get away with it, or if they don’t care because it’s statistically unlikely they’ll be caught out, but I don’t like it. When a van parks too close, I generally have a polite but straightforward word with the driver about lines of sight and most are OK to be fair. The majority of people seem to accept it’s cheeky and technically wrong, but there’s nothing we can do to stop it in the long run.
However, I can’t accept that a professional driving instructor working for an established driving school should do this for the sake of parking only twenty odd yards further down the road. It’s taking the proverbial. Besides, he’s doing so with his telephone number and company name on display. Great advertising, mate.
