Should the beating of parking attendants be legalised?

I vote yes!

The little scruffy tossers wait until you're out of range, then leap in with a 60 quid ticket and scuttle off!

And what's the point of clamps? If your motor's causing an obstruction, clamping it's only gonna make the obstruction last longer :evil:

B*stards

There should be a hunting season for them as far as I'm concerned. Having said that though, some cnuts park in the most stupid places so I laugh when they get a ticket.

Clamping is a revenue thing in my opinion. I believe (from various TV programmes) that most clamping is done by private companies and some do not follow any code of practice or regulations. Under the law, if you see a 'Vehicles may be clamped' sign and park your car there anyway, you have agreed to a contract. If the sign is not clear or obstructed, you may have a get-out clause. Someone mentioned bolt croppers in another thread and that is something of which I thoroughly approve. Or you could scratch your £400 Rover Metro to bits around the wheel arches and claim damages against the barstewards.

Edited because of my mongness

condering the local wardens here have been known to book, a pregnant mother with 12mins left on her meter, a hearse picking up a coffin and the (welsh i think) team rugby bus as the they were disembarking outside their hotel, i'd happily turn warden beating into a national sport!
cnuts one and all!

I think this remark is unfair. Parking is becoming much moore of an issue and there are alot of unscrupulous companies out there who go about clamping vehicles who are parked on private sites which they have nothing to do with yet take the chance to make a fast opportunistic buck.

I agree that if an area is clearly marked. eg double yellow lines or an official sign then anyone who chooses to ignore the rules should get a ticket but sometimes these areas are not clearly marked. In my home town parking restrictions are in place yet they are not enforced and the result is often chaos.

I do think that your To$$er comment was a little unfair on hogspawn. you don't know the facts and I'm sure that if he was in the wrong he'd admit it. It still p1ssed me off when i got a ticket and I did deserve it.

I seem to remember a couple of years ago a South African company would attach a flame thrower system under your car so you could torch any scrote who tried to hijack you. Think of the hilarity that would ensue if you could get REME to install a switch somewhere on the wiper blade to activiate it.

Since Fox Huntings is goin to be banned and you get so many protesters towards it.. why not replace the fox with a traffic warden. Kidnap him from the high street, pump him up wif cocaine so he is more willing to play, and let him run about in the country side being chased by hounds and double barrel shot guns... seems fine 2 me...!?

How about just burn the illegaly parked cars and crucify the drivers .
whats the matter pie shop to far to walk too. Poeple think they can park where ever they like and then get upset no sympathy .And those turds who think hazards lights mean i can stop anyway well words fail me

Or even better, how about using them as enemy on live firing exercises?

I think shooting is to good for this type of scum. You come up to them when their writing out a ticket. You say politely "sorry mate, I'm going now" and the tosser replies "well it in my book so I can't cancel it, I woul;d if I could". Bullshi'ite. These sad people get off on the power trip.

Christ! what a response Right then :

Ventress you cheeky cnut! I'd expect better from a colleague!

Illeagally parked = get ticket = not a problem, annoying yes, unfair, no.

But: sat on motorcycle with engine running having just let my girlfriend get off the bike cos she was throwing up, the wee to$$er came up and handed me a ticket in about 30 seconds, you'd have thought he'd have noticed the vomiting bint next to me! and I appealed and they rejected the appeal. :(

Next, my local council instructs the parking nazis to stick someone on without any hesitation, I know as ive read the policy in the local councils publications.
No waiting time, no Q's and A's as to why you've parked here etc. If they want to keep traffic moving, they could walk up to the driver and say 'move your car or you'll get a ticket' rather than go straight for the revenue.

But they let the local mini scabs park on the pavement or on the yellows outside their office!

There are no decent Cash and Flash car parks, they're all about £3 an hour!

I do despise those who use the 'park anywhere' lights,

but as for the first comment, you can't keep forcing more and more rules and bylaws on people who already pay through the nose in council tax!

Especially when there is no flexibility in the system, and nowhere to bloody park.
