Frustrated school run mum parks her car in the middle of a ROUNDABOUT…and insists she CAN leave it there
AN inpatient mum on the school run decided to dump her car on a busy roundabout – and insists she is in the right.
The woman was spotted by cops who gave her a hefty fine, but the motorist wasn’t having any of it.
According to Birmingham Live, the woman claimed that she was in her rights to park in the middle of the road.
The altercation between the motorist and the cops took place outside Swanhurst School after parents and staff moaned about careless parking.
But this isn’t the first time a brazen parent has flaunted the rules and turned a blind eye to parking rules.
A Mercedes driver was caught on the same roundabout in Billesley, Birmingham.
I just wanna know how did she pass her driving test if she thinks this is legal?
Billesley Police said: “PCSO Owen and PCSO Yasin have attended Swanshurst School regarding several issues this morning.
“Please be considerate when dropping your children off to school. More fines in the post.
“Today we have been at Swanshurst School, whilst there we have come across parents badly parking their cars around the island.
“A parent was advised why parking across an island exit was wrong as they felt they could park there. #ticketfairy #fineinthepost.”
On Twitter, people were not amused by the offenders’ approach to parking.
One wrote: “You must know this has been going on for years. We call them ‘flouters’ as they think they can flout our rules and laws.
“It’s the same with altered number plates.”
Another pointed out: “I just wanna know how did she pass her driving test if she thinks this is legal??”
With nearly 38.4 million motorists on Britain’s roads, poor parking is a bugbear for many.
Some people have been known to go to extreme measures to teach dodgy drivers a lesson, including wrapping stationary cars in cling film or foil.
However, if that isn’t enough to make your blood boil, one man from Doncaster deliberately parks over two spaces to ensure no one gets close to his pride and joy.
