Is it morally right to park in a parent/child bay when you have no kids with you?

  1. Yes, it's morally right to park in them even without children in the car.

    All the parking spots should be like the parent/kids parking spots. Some car parks are that narrow even with every car bang in the middle its hard to get out.

    Anone that thinks it's morally right, simply doesn't know what morals are, and unfortunately that's a growing percentage of the population.

    (But I do agree that using them at 2am is a different matter, as most parents will have their kids in bed at that time and won't be taking them shopping.)

    I dont, I park as far away from the shop as I can to stop people dinking my doors etc.

    I have legs, I aint afraid to use them! :)

    Leave them for people with kids and use your legs.

    No of course not. I park on the opposite side of the car park as far away from other cars as possible. Plus if you do not have kids what makes you think you can park there? The shop have put the spaces there for those people, it is there car park and they can do that. If you do not think this is correct, shop elsewhere. Simples. My local Sainsbury has not started fining people £10 if they park in an allocated space without the ness reason, spot on.
    However people who park in disabled spaces should just be shot. Ok maybe that is a little extreme but my best mate is in a chair and nothing is worse than going somewhere and finding a perfectly fit and healthy person parked in a disabled bay. He then has to park in 2 spaces to enable him to open his dorr thus annoying other users. My mate just parks behind them now, blocking them in. :icon_thumright:

    I always park as far away as possible from the supermarket, even if it's raining. If you park in a P+C space even if you have no children there is always the chance of someone running into the side of your car with a trolley as the spaces are wider as they go past.

    When i drove a nail parking in the parent bays didnt bother me.Disabled never have parked in.Now I drive a shiny car nothing scares me more than some dumb arse thinking about shoes/handbags with a couple of scrotes pushing a trolley(even worse letting the scrotes push it) parking near my car.So i dont.Ill try and park in a spot with nowt around it.Strange how when you return theres always some c*** parked right next to you even though you both parked miles away from the next car.ARRRGGHH

    I dont use Disabled spaces because Im not disabled.
    I dont use use Parent & Toddler spaces anymore because my daughter is no longer a toddler.

    But neither do a want my car damaged so I find a space at the end of a row or the quiet corner that no one else can be arsed to walk from.

    Works just fine for me and Im happy in the knowledge that my car is safe, and Ive done my bit to leave the consessionary spaces for those that will benefit from them.:icon_thumright:

    Amen (its the Sabbath btw)
