So far so dull...
People keep walking past and smirking...In fact I just saw a bloke I know is a shoplifter walk past grinning!
Really dull...Oh well. I have a good clamping story. We were in Glasgow. It was a bank holiday. We parked on a yellow line opposite a multi-story car park. It's a Bank Holiday. It'll be cool. It wasn't cool. When we returned the car was gone. Stolen! It was a hire car. I phoned the police. "No it's not stolen. It was illegally parked and was towed away""But we have a plane to catch. All our luggage/passports etc are in there. It's a hire car - and it's a bloody Bank Holiday""Not in Scotland it isn't sir."Time was short so we had to take a taxi. Our driver was sympathetic to the point of psychotic - described in a think Glasgow accent how he would kill a parking dude if he ever met one down a dark alley - but when we arrived at the pound they laughed at us. We'd parked outside the place where all the traffic wardens go for tea. We were towed away 2 minutes after parking there. "Probably thought you were taking the piss mate"
I have always felt that clamping illegally parked vehicles is the wrong approach. It obstructs the traffic for one thing.Crush the car and reduce it to a cube. That doesn't obstruct the traffic and you can be sure the owner won't park that car illegally ever again.
