Re: When someone Parks like a moron.... This

I'm tempted to buy one of those angle grinders in case I ever get wheel clamped. I wonder if you can buy a smaller version to run off a car battery? Wink

@Minivanman It would be a waste of money.

Being a kind, caring & considerate member of the Community you would never put yourself in such a position where your wheels would be clamped...........

Not on purpose no, but I'd hate to get caught out unfairly by some piddle taking private company with the rules, regulations and small unreadable signs.

Be easier to use an invertor from the car battery & run a mains grinder.

A decent cordless grinder isn't cheap & you need high Ah batteries to run it if you want decent run time from it.

SWMBO says that sort of thing is a regular occurance out there; when it comes to cars, apparently, they are just crazy.

 

It seems the number of accidents that occur where the drivers just get out and walk off leaving the car is amazing but frequently due to no insurance and being drunk.

 

I used to say that I wanted to drive there but not any more as, from my observations in Ukraine, no one appears to adhere to any rulesShocked

If you want to avoid wheel clamps, either park responsibly or you could always move to Scotland where it's illegal*

 

* With the exceptions of Law Enforcement, DVLA or at a push the Local Authority.

Re: When someone Parks like a moron.... This

Sorry, but I see no right in immobilising my car and effectively putting a gun to my head in order to make me pay some exorbitant charge for some minor offence. What next, clamped for not paying car tax, clamped for not paying child maintenance, clamped for overdue library books? It's a sledgehammer cracking a nut.

Let the punishment fit the crime, not the clamp. 

Now where did I leave that angle grinder. Smiley
