As a cyclist you should appreciate that bad parking is annoying.

You putting stuff under wipers isnt going to change anything


Short of pushing the car to the correct position, what would you suggest? The police have already told me it's "not a police matter". The council are lazy ****s who won't do anything. When I spoke to the guy in person, he just looked completely confused, he wasn't intelligent enough to understand, I thought a simple diagram might help him, or he can get his wife to explain.


I still don't see which is the correct side of the street to park. Is
it dictated by local custom and usage, or is it down to the first car
to park dictating which side?


First car to park obviously. It works ok in most streets, particularly ones that get completely full when everyone's at home. If people parked on the other side, someone would end up with nowhere to park and there'd be arguments. How difficult is it to park on the same side as another car which is close to where you're parking? I always manage it, it's not rocket science.

suggest?


Not suggesting anything. Nothing you can do will change what they do
parking
wise.


It did once.


Nope.

I was parking in a street for 5 minutes, and deliberately parked so as to
block the road. I parked the same side as 10 other cars, ignoring the BMW
(it's almost always a BMW, they're selfish pricks) that was stupidly on
the other side. When someone tried to get past, I pointed to the BMW and
blamed its driver. The guy trying to get past went and knocked on his
door and started yelling. I drove away and left them to it.


Had no effect on where he parked.

The police have already told me it's "not a police matter".


They're right, they are parking legally.


It shouldn't be legal to take up two spaces with one car.


They arent doing that.

The council are lazy ****s who won't do anything.


Nothing they can do either.


My council won't do anything about anything,


They obviously do collect the rubbish and put in
those speed bumps you froth at the mouth about.

and it's usually them causing the problem in the first place!


Then do the decent thing and set fire to yourself outside their offices.

When I spoke to the guy in person, he just looked completely confused,


Yep, while thinking to himself 'this ****er is completely out of his
****ing tree'


I took you as a bloke with some logic and common sense.


You never could bull**** your way out of a wet paper bag.

Draw a little diagram for yourself if it helps, or just use mine.

Parking on alternate sides of a street which is two car widths, takes up
twice the room.


And yet the council doesn't ban parking on one side of the street.

Taint gunna work.


Well there's always the mess a key makes of paintwork.


That wont get them all parking on the same side either.

It's illegal to park facing the wrong way. At least in civilized countries.


And the USA

Should you really be parking anywhere on a road that narrow?


In the UK, we have narrower roads than you. It's normal to park in a residential area on the road (either because you have a cheap **** house with no drive, or you're stupid enough to have more cars than drive space). But sensible folk all park on the same side, meaning you can easily get past. Parking on any side you like means you create a slalom to get round the cars, and each car takes up twice the space, as you need a gap between each.

I don't know what the conversation was, as I'd left, but I've since seen that car parked on the other side. It used to always be on the wrong side. The guy trying to get past was built substantially more heavy than the BMW owner.

The police have already told me it's "not a police matter".


They're right, they are parking legally.


It shouldn't be legal to take up two spaces with one car.


They arent doing that.


You can't be that thick. Draw a diagram similar to the one I posted. Imagine every other car parks on the left, and every other car parks on the right. Leave enough gap for passing traffic to get past, and parked cars are at least one car's length apart. Now put them all on the same side, no gaps required.

The council are lazy ****s who won't do anything.

Nothing they can do either.


My council won't do anything about anything,


They obviously do collect the rubbish and put in
those speed bumps you froth at the mouth about.


They do both of those very badly indeed.

and it's usually them causing the problem in the first place!

Best just to set fire to their offices.

When I spoke to the guy in person, he just looked completely confused,

I took you as a bloke with some logic and common sense.

So you don't have common sense then, I can believe that.

Draw a little diagram for yourself if it helps, or just use mine.

They do when it becomes a problem. But usually when a street gets very busy, people start seeing sense.

might help him, or he can get his wife to explain.

But it'll cost the **** money, and it'll give me immense satisfaction.

Only because he couldn't see your minder anywhere and was not sure what
type of mental patient he was dealing with.


He looked like a mental patient himself. Anyone who can't work out the simple logic of parking on the same side as everyone else isn't intelligent enough to drive.

How do you know if it is the Green or the Blue car that has parked
incorrectly on the wrong side of the road?


The diagram is simplified.* There are in the street that annoys me most,
5 cars on one side and 1 on the other.* It's clear that making 1 park on
the other side to his house is better than making 5 park opposite.


And who decides? The first one to park?
