Seen It All....London Life

Post by Marco46 » Tue Dec 06, 2011 8:53 pm

Early this morning, while walking to work after parking my bike. I saw some poor sods BMW car parked up by the side of the road. The car had been clearly involved in an accident. Front wheel and most of the front was missing.

An hour later I walk past it and some warden had given it a parking ticket !!!

few days ago I had to call the Rescue man out to get me out of trouble. On the way to the garage he told me that the week before, he had picked up a biker who had been involved in an accident. The poor sod had been knocked off his bike and was waiting for the paramedics to fix him up before being taken to hospital.
A warden turned up and slapped a ticket on the bike which had been picked up and parked up by a passerby.......

Yep, its a lucrative source of revenue for councils. They'll clamp postal vans as well.

There was a guy who got stung with a penalty charge for being in a bus lane* becuase he'd been hit by a car and had to roll the bike somewhere safe.

*bus lanes are mostly fine to use with exceptions in certain boroughs.
Lambeth is quite keen on handing out penalty charges.
