ROAD ETIQUETTE WHEN PARKING?
Previous | 12 | Next

on driving down a normal suburban road (1 lane either direction) you encounter parked cars. 2 cars are parked parallel to each other and the gap is too small for you to get through.

Hmmmmm BO! BO! Chick.............. Chick a chickaaahhh!

If there is enough space on the pavement and its safe to do so, why not?

Click for sheds

option C: hold horn till twunts who've parked their cars come out of their houses and get them to move them.

Option D; change your car for a Daewoo Matiz.

HTH :lol:

Option E relies upon you owning a small tank, armoured car or other ex-army transportation.

You can work out the rest, and it involves crunching noises.

I'd probably u-turn - some nosy prick is bound to spot you and call the cops if you mount the pavement, citing the 'think of the children' argument - not worth the potential hassle.

I don't disagree with the concept of riding the pavement - if I saw someone do it, I'd not complain a jot providing it was clearly safe to do so.

Sadly getting up onto the pavement isn't an option in my car :(

I'd toot the horn for a while. If no one came out, I'd do a three point turn, then go and let their tyres down. (Ok I wouldn't really)

well i was on the pavement when some noisy b'stard came out to tell me that pavements are for pedestrians - not cars. :lol: :lol:

no shit sherlock :roll:

well, if your bloody neighbours had a bit of common sense then i wouldnt be on the pavement at all would i dipshit.

thinking about it, what happens if a fire engine or summat needed to get through?

from a similar experience at school (false alarm in old peoples home close to school), with a mates car being the offending vehicle. The fire brigade informed him that if it had been a 'live shout' then they would of used the fire engine to barge his car out of the way - then he'd have to pay for repairs to the fire engine becasue he was obstructing a public thoroughfare.

yours,

I'd go for C but you're dead right about the fire engine.

It's also one of the reasons I have a "small car".

The slowest loser on the EVO forum

I can't be the only person who's surprised that nobody's suggested self-immolation. Or setting fire to the other cars. :wink:

Even the Russians know better than to fuck with me.

Early this AM when I dropped off the girls they were parked staggered;

Not enough room to go straight through but at a fairly steep angle.

I was bloacked in by a car once (shared carpark area though didnt recognise the car) it was a fairly new car so i got out, grabbed the top of the window/roof and rocked the fucker til i set the alarm off - that got the owner out.

Be a cunt and call the traffic warden out.

had i had a traffic wardens phone no then i would of...

easiest thing was to go on the pavement (esp as i was a passenger andit my old dear driving - didnt fancy getting her to reverse out of the slalom and then manouevre a 3 point turn.

if i'd been on my own then i might have told the nosy parker to fuck off or prepare for immolation.

need to sort out local dibbles no actually for next time.

Pavement is quickest and easiest method granted but I'd be option C also. And then I'd give them a right roasting for being ignorant cvnts while I was at it.

Regarding the Fire Engine - they have the right to move obstructions any way they see fit IIRC - and whilst they'd most likely be fairly sympathetic in most cases I could see them just dragging a car out of the way if needs be. And rightly so imo.

I would hold on to the horn for a while until someone comes out, have had to do that in the past in similar situations.

Gav is correct. It really pisses them off as well. This is always my preferred option. I do sometimes just wish I had a wreck though and would just drive through.

I like the idea of the fire engine barging cars out the way, the only problem being you don't always know who was the tard/tards. I've parked before on an empty road and come back to find two cars on the opposite side front and back making it look like i was the selfish twat who created the slalom.

The wee beastie

Barry is correct about the fire engine. I have a mate who is retained & he says the guidlines are that if you need to move it, then do so. Obviously a lot of common sense comes into it, i.e. if it's a mini & you're on your way to get a cat out of a tree, then you'd try & find the owner or physically bump-move it out of the way using man-power, but if it's a house fire with people reported missing, then the 20 tonne+ fire engine will move it for you pronto, although they do have to return to the scene or report it to the police afterwards.

Same goes for speeding. If you can justify doing 80 in a 30, then you won't get done. Do 80 in a 30 on the way to pump someones cellar out & you'll probably be dismissed & fined heavily.

As for the origional topic, that happens a lot round my way, & I've driven on the path several times & no-ones moaned. I think as long as you're driving dead slow & not reving away, then you aren't going to leave yourself open to abuse from the nosey neighbour.

Gwaredd.
