Top Police Parking......

71 posts in this topic

I only hope those who think it's fine to park in disabled bays for no other reason that it's close to the doors etc end up in a wheelchair one day or have to care for a disabled relative. Then you'll see just what they mean to those who use them.

Having had my father-in-law be confined to a wheelchair after a series of strokes I know only too well what those disabled spaces mean. They mean I can get the wheelchair out and he can open the door fully in order to help himself out of the car. How else can someone who is disabled get out of a car FFS? Ask them to squeeze themselves out of a 6" gap in the door to avoid dinking the next car along?

If I see people parking in them for no other reason than laziness (because that's what it is, lazy twats who can't be arsed to walk) I feel nothing but contempt for them and would quite happily tell them if they didn't like the sh1tty looks they get.

I take your point. Scrap them. But don't complain when a disabled driver dings your door when he opens his as wide as he can to swing his legs out or scrapes his wheelchair down the side of your car when there is 700mm space between your car and his and his wheelchair is 710mm wide crazy.gif

@pontyslapper, does it hell buy the store some kind of loyalty ! Every store has M&C spaces. So no advantage really. DVDS for kids by the entrance ? You should venture a little further than Upper boat mate. Not in mine or the other nearest. Heres to hoping your car never gets dented by a mother who's "had a fcuk full of the kids" and just wants to get them in the Scenic and home.

Chris,

I use Tesco over in Ystrad Mynach - seemingly much more civilised since they poached most of the top staff from Upper Boat.

The furthest reaches of the car park where I park are only a mere 15 spaces from the doors.

Upper Boat is a store for ruffians and fools - the parking is diabolical, the store a shambles, the petrol overpriced. The only store that makes it look good is the Extra over in Llantrisant and they have even pricier petrol!

Upper boat is the 'emergency' store for me and SWMBO. She would much rather the trek over to Ystrad as we can drop into Lidl and Somerfield for 'some bargains' on the way out or on the way home. ROLLEY~14.GIF

Technically he couldn't scrape down the side as he'd be well and truly wedged in and stuck if his wheelchair was 10mm wider than teh gap grin.gif

None of the above is funny in any way whatsoever...

I know someone like this, I use disabled spaces all the time now and sometimes I see this old fart that goes around my local store putting notes on the cars and then hits them with his walking stick(you don't have a walking stick do you Milo?) grin.gif I used to think that he parked there to just get onto the people that parked in the paces, turns out he was parking there to check out the kids comming back from school and we do our shopping before we pick the kids up from school and that why we saw him there so much.

Anyway before he was caught for being a dirty peedo I was sitting in the car while Louise went in and done the shopping(I was in a normal space) this fart came over and hit a BMW that was parked so hard that he set the alarm off, he got such a fright that he fell over. God I thought that it was so funny I was yelrotflmao.gif I had to go over and see if he had marked the car and what did you think I seen on the car, a tyresmoke sticker.

Another time I was with my brother and was getting a few things from the store while he did the weekly shop. I left the store first as I had checked out first and got the keys from him for the car. While I was putting the bit of shopping that I had got in the boot this guy came over and started having a right go at me. I told him to get the fcuk away and that we had a small child with us, he wanted to know where the child seat was in the car. By this time there was a good few people looking as he was making a fair bit of noise. Then my brother came out and started walking over to the car and I thought to myself that right I'll now make a compleat fool of him when he sees the child seat in the trolly, I said to the guy that this is the reason that I was parked here and pointed at my brother with the trolly with the baby in it at what point my brother asked what the fcuk are you pointing at, I've just come over to see what the tosser looks like that took the last child space, then turns to the lad that was having a go at me and said, I had to park way way over there because this guy was infront of me comming into the carpark and he took the last place. Then the people around started having a go aswell as my brother just walked off.

I thought it was funny afterwards and just the sort of thing that my brother would do.

ponty, you should come and look at the Merthyr store. You really do need to see it. They have errected another temp car park above the existing one. Just for Christmas they say. The standard of driving and parking is fcuking atrocious (correct spelling ?) Only the other day an old geezer nearly ran me over on the chevrons at the end of the rows, then his wife wound down the window to abuse me for complaining ! Incredible. Have a trip up and check it out. Saturday midday is best.

That one in Llantrisant I've only been to once. Its got a pharmacy like Upper boat hasn't it. Chaos there that time.

Chris.

If we had decent sized parking bays - we could all park how we want, and not get your car damaged. But no, we have to squeeze as many customers in as you can.

My Mrs had some kind person run into the back of her car in Tescos, not just a tap either, smashed her rear bumper, and then fecked off.

Re the parking picture - did you hang about to see if they were putting a shoplifter / drunk / pikey in the back of the car ?

its a pain in arse trying to get baba out car in normal space, you hae to hold door as not being a chav i wouldnt dream of denting some ones car.

there was a old fat lad that dented cars parked in teesside park disabled spaces. He did it to one and the owner seen him and it ended in court for affray. jump.gif

i was parked next to a diabled space last week with baba and lad and seen this old twat park over the stripped line and then start to swing his door open wide, missing mine by MM, then looked again and had another swing.

needless to say he got a fecking mouth full. old feckers.

M&C spaces are great! Means when I go shopping with mum we can park in them.

What?

Well, it doesn't say there's an age restriction.

my feelings are, they are acceptable to use them whilst you battleling childseats etc etc, it is very hard getting our 6 month old in the car, the famil spaces make life very easy!!, but soon as she can walk then there is no need to use them spaces.

Anyone that uses a P&C space that doesn't have a child, in a carseat, deserves a slap. slap.gif Furthermore, I mean one of these seats, not a booster.

Basically, once a child can walk unaided, then you use a normal space.

Anyone using a P&C space because they think it's fair game either doesn't have kids and therefore has no idea, or they've forgotten what it's like. openfire.gif

The little ones can be walking from as early as 9 months old, but they would still need strapping in,

i think maybe you shouldn't be using them once the child can get in and strap itself.

Exactly none of us want our cars damaged, its impossible to fit my car into most spaces, its long enough to over hang front and back and almost as wide as the white lines.

This E class driver managed to solve the problem. I saw him drive in and thought for a horrible moment he was going to park next to me EEK2.GIF

Trying to get the little'un out the back of my car over the christmas hols in a normal space because every lazy chav has used all the P&C space is ni-on impossible without bangin the car beside you...

You try holding the passenger door on a 911 (so it doesn't knock the next car) while leaning in, one foot in the car, bent in two and 90 degrees while said 13 month old looks at you as if to say "mummys car would have been a better idea daddy"

All I wanted to do it have a go at the lazy scroats...

There should be a barrier to get to the P&C and disabled spaces to stop the poo-heads parkin!

I may be wrong but i think i read on here that p&c spaces were always placed nearest the store so that kids didn't have to walk through the car park dodging cars reversing out of spaces where the children might not be seen by the driver. If this is the case then i don't think that the "ability to walk" thing is relevant.

People parking in M&C spaces without children is one of my pet hates, when i pop down the local supermarket for a few bits and bog i have to walk past the M&C spaces and always look in the windows to see if they have child seats - if they dont i normally hang around outside and have a quite word with the owner when they return (not abusive, just a please dont park in M&C spaces if you dont have children type of thing) normally does the trick as they look all embarsed etc.

Dont get me wrong, I would never park in a disabled space, but mother and child is a step too far for me. Most of the time I park in the far corner away from any possible door banging, often only to find some clown has parked 1cm away from me....

you really think that is why they have them?

crazy.gif Not the only reason but it must help reduce door banging if you let the cars with kids park in bigger spaces? ....unless the spaces are full of chavs?
