    14/04/2021. The CRX is still on auto trader, the price has been reduced to a rather delightful £39,750. Still ridiculous and the other 5 for sale ( bar the “ very rare type r” £20,000 ) are under 10 big ones.

    Maybe your wardens are better than ours, they only seem to enforce the rules when it pleases them, and half the time don't follow them themselves - parking on double yellows etc. One thing that pisses me off is here they'll only fine residential cars, for example I got hit for parking on the side of the curb because our street is narrow and we if you don't, you block busses and HGVs going past. Bam, £60 PCN. Yet whenever a builder, delivery guy, utility vans etc do the exact same thing - no fine, I just see the warden casually walking by. I wouldn't care so much if they applied the rules across the board, not just picking easy targets because they don't want big builder man to shout at them. It's also a pretty well known fact that parking charge notices are an income stream for councils, so that means targets and zero digression. They just go for the low hanging fruit to maximise those numbers. /rant

    Traffic Wardens aren’t hated for what they do, it’s the sneaky underhand way they do it. If they were really about stopping unsafe parking then they would be a lot more visible rather than hiding around the corner waiting till you are just out of sight so they can get you.

    My dad did that with the oxy-acetylene and the trash-bag once before I was born. He smoked back then, and one failed to light off, so he went in to re-light it with his cigarette, and nearly blew his face off. This was back in his hippy days, so he apparently had a beard down to his belly button, and I've never known him to be able to grow a beard since then. They had to graft pig skin to his forehead, but we're pretty sure the beard saved the rest of his face.

    Traffic wardens can be dicks at times. I once got a ticket for parking 3cm too close to an intersection ... now tell me can you spot the difference between 497cm and 500cm by eye? Yeah I took 5 big steps and thought I'd be good ... no the guy actually comes with a fucking ruler and measures me 3cm short ... A dick for sure but damn he's just doing his job.

    Parking wardens in my opinion likened to a faction of a certain European country in the 1940's. I suffered from a horrendous condition which required multiple serious operations and numerous hospital visits. One day, after an op in a hospital, I drove back. Started feeling a bit weird and decided to pull over in case it was a bit more serious. It was a quiet street, marked parking bays but not a single car. I was quite ill by this time.... parking warden comes up. Explained to him, that I wasn't feeling well, showed the hospital wrist band, the huge hospital bag with dressings, medicine etc. Couldn't care less, wrote a ticket and walked off. He was lucky I was so ill by that point that it put me off running him over... which I seriously considered doing, just to improve the human race!

    I fully accept a ticket if i get caught but its still frustrating. When i get back from a 12 hour shift and i cant park down my own road because half the people cant park close enough to fit more cars in, i end up driving around my local area for around ten to twenty mins searching, and sometimes give up and park on the yellow lines down my road. 😪

    to be fair haven't watched this episode yet but there are 3 parking companies in my area 3 areas not clearly defined I have asked for a layout from all 3 which i haven't got and further than that straight after 6pm people park in my area without a ticket because they know they are fine until the next morning at 9 am which leaves me no place to park and its not a pay and display in the area at all and i got given a ticket even though I couldn't park in the place i was permitted and i can get a permit for one of the other areas but their phone line hasn't worked all covid they don't answer their emails and their parking permit to buy online wasn't working either and had the street name is spelt wrong so for awhile i was genuinely questioning the legitimacy of the company in the first place so some of us are just screwed over from start to finish on that's on me getting completed Fd in the A or is that somehow my fault?

    As a Dane it hurts to live in this country. First priority is to move to another country, already got paperwork done with the Canadian Embassy and now it's just waiting. By the time I am done with my apprenticeship as an auto mechanic, I can potentially move immediately. There's a lot of things that I am missing out on, but looking forward to the future of what I can achieve by NOT being in this country. Is what drives me forward.

The traffic warden saw me and told me if I park in the spaces that surrounded the outside of the car park it would be free, saving me £5
