Default Re: parking officials

There was a belter today in the Daily Record in Glasgow.

A gentleman parked his car on a single yellow line, and whilst he was away, some pleasant Glasgow "youths" stole all four of the wheels on his car.

So he phoned his insurance company who said they would pick up the car the following afternoon, and he proceded to write a note explaining his predicament to any passing parking official.

They STILL gave him a ticket.

Currently the chap is going through an appeal process with the local council, and it looks like he will get off with it, and quite rightly so.

And ALSO, Tutin will back me up on this, in Scotland its ILLEGAL to clamp any car, anywhere. Some guy took the clampers to the court and won on grounds of Blackmail. Pay us money and we will give you yer car back!!
