What about the merc driver swerving at the pedestrians on the pavement in the other picture or the Vauxhall’s inability to park within the lines as well?? Daily mail..nuff said!

Have to say looking at the cars either side of him, if he had parked in the space properly, the other people would not have been able to open their doors as they are not in the middle of their spaces - they are parked on or over the lines.

Interestingly, or scarily, Mailonline is one of the most visited websites in the world.

This article came up while I was reading something else and I read some of the comments. I'm amazed that a newspaper ran a story over something so trivial. Its hardly news and can we witnessed most days in most supermarket car parks Question Question

Me too , I spent ages looking at it and all I could think is are they upset because he didn't park with the white line central under his car or was it the astra parked over the white line. other than that all I saw was some perfect parking very considerate to ensure he didn't bang his doors against the cars parked next to him what can be wrong with that Grin Grin Grin

This news story did make me chuckle today and surely all of the parents picking up their children would be in parent and toddler spaces

What really annoys me is when parents with kids park in non-parent child spaces. If they have run out of those spaces in the car park they should go somewhere else, not just use a normal space and bash the other cars. Don't the realise why the spaces are there!!!

I have a 10 month old myself and you don't know how valuable these spaces are when you are getting a small child out of the car in a supermarket, the trouble comes as people take the p**5 who have children old enough to get themselves out of the car, you quite often see someone pull in with a teen in the front seat who jumps out of the car and the parent thinks it ok.

Like you have said though i have been in a supermarket car park and seen a mum just shove the door back with her ar5e as it kept closing on her while strapping the child in but didn't give any thought to the car behind her, she did this for a good few minutes and must have hit the other car about 10 times.

I think the disgraceful behaviour was from the newspapers
I'm sure any sensible porsche owner would do the same and do so as far away from the entrance door so any respectful motorist would understand his actions


no doubt waynetta from hull in herZafira with 3 children of unknown fathers wouldn't give 2 hoots to opening her door and denting the Porsche

Outrageous behavior to be honest, at least get the white line smack bang in the middle. Thumb
