Falkland's Vet with Parkinson's Disease gets Parkin' ticket

Deckhead_Inspector

Lantern Swinger
Last week a now ageing Naval vet returned to his car to find that he had a ticket on his windscreen. As he has Parkinsons desease he has a disabled parking badge. His wife, of course he does not drive himself, had parked the car outside a disused shop in a "Loading Area". The time on the ticket would indicate that the Warden (Paid more than a private soldier, according to CGS) had watched them park and slowly walk away then pounced. Amazingly several Taxis went unpunished. Dispite the area only becoming a taxi rank Some three hours later.

Proof that parking restictions are for raising money from the innocent and not about maintainig trafic flow.

FFS is no one safe from these people. How the feck they sleep at night is beyond me. This country is going down the pan. Last one out turn the lights off and shut the door behind them.

I didn't realize that war veterans are allowed to park wherever they wish.

He wouldn't normally, however the disabled badge that he carries confers certain dispensations.

A true dit with no reference? Hmm, without knowing the full facts of the story I don't think many of us can comment in this case... :?
