    It was a big weekend for plonkers. I saw loads of stuff.

    First in Matalan carpark, a couple of guys who weren't disabled and didn't have a disabled badge parked in a disabled bay.
    When they returned to their car they couldn't unlock it. Looked as though the key had just stopped working.
    They called Green Flag but the man who turned up couldn't gain access either.
    I didn't hang around to see the outcome but it was a deserved lock out! :laugh:

    [​IMG]




    Next up - an Adsa carpark parking fail! The owner of this Smart car obviously isn't that smart!

    lmao Ads!

    It was a very stupid bit of marketing, you couldnt notice the car if you were walking around that area. I only noticed it whilst on the tram! thought this pic was made for this thread :lmfao:

    p.s. that astra is solid :| almost took the house down and still looks like the bonnet hasnt folded in!

    @Ads - It's a shame that Smart wasn't Morrisons. You could've got a load of trollies and 'ring' clamped it. Release fee only £1, but I reckon they'd get the message. Still, the temptation was surely to get three beefy mates and just carry it to a better parking space? (How heavy are they? I know for a *fact* it's possible to carry an old Mini!)

    @55_UK - That is some piss poor marketing. It makes me wonder if any of the 'creative' team went to Cambridge though... My cousin was showing me around the colleges after his wedding last weekend, and he was talking about 'the Night Climbers of Cambridge' - obviously Cambridgeshire isn't known for its peaks, but among Cambridge alumni various stunts and traditions have come along which use the ancient architecture for climbing-related sport(/pranks). Apparently, one morning in 1958, scholars awoke to find an Austin Seven had somehow made its way 70ft upwards onto the senate house roof! -link-

    Here is another example of how well women park their cars...
    As you can imagine, I was foaming at the mouth after returning back to this!!!! :wtf:

    What about this numpty traffic warden, one rule for them and another for us drivers...

    Not exactly bad parking but makes finding your car easier when your name's printed on the side of it.

    Here's what happened to a guy's RS4 on my local VW forum when he parked between two spaces...

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    Gotta say you're asking for it if you park across two bays. Having said that the perp is clearly still a ****er for desecrating an RS4!
    The RS4 had just had a respray 2 weeks earlier aswell!

    Another one someone posted on my local VW forum...
