Rides to school on cycle again. No traffic worries. Until this Vauxhal HOS was spotted. So dismounts. Tap Tap Tap on the offside window.
“Gidday mate! Can you move your vehicle please? You’re illegally parked on the kerb, on double yellows and less than 10m from the corner – I can’t cycle past you safely”
“I’m just waiting. It’s picking up time. Everyone’s doing it”
“Please move your vehicle, otherwise I’ll be reporting it to the police and the council”
“OH YEAH?!? WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE OTHER CARS UP THERE PARKED ON THE PAVEMENT?!? ARE YOU GONNA REPORT THEM TOO?!? ARE YOU GOING TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM TOO?!?”
“Yep, but you’re first” <smiley face>
Thinks to self – BT05NMF – you really need to leave earlier and get a proper park, not block the safe vision for other road users near a corner opposite a high school and just up the road from a primary school.
Thinks to self – some adjectives come to mind. Perhaps better not to share those.
