    Ah,entitled Merc drivers.Don't you just admire them?

    Pig ignorant selfish van driver blocks man using mobility scooter. CRW is six months out of date.

    Probably too lazy to open the gate. I saw the same in my old estate, people would park across the path with the gates closed and the driveway empty. People without gates never left the drive empty...

    NCT out over 2 months, a prime example of a driver you wouldn't ask to do a bank job with 😂

    The NCT doesn't bother me. Mine was out by six months due to backlog until yesterday. But his bouncing off the kerb as a way of stopping the car would bother me.

    Loading bay aswell, thought blindness was a disability that banned you from driving

    Wouldn't it be easier for him to just get "I've a tiny cock" tattooed on his head than wasting so much money on such a monstrosity

    Saw this today in Athlone and just had to photograph it as I think it ticks all the boxes for bad parking?

    Park on double yellow lines-tick

    Park on Yield sign-tick

    Block road completely-tick

    Plenty of parking spaces available-tick

    Quality of driving-THICK

    Not bad parking but laziness. Got stuck coming out of Blanchardstown car park (the side with Smyth's, Starbucks etc). Queue of cars trying to get out, cars coming in would sit with the indicator on trying to go between the cars into an aisle but couldn't because it would be blocked. Instead of parking to the right where there was spaces or alternatively driving further down past the queue to get into an aisle then driving back to get closer to the shops they would just sit there.

    I had someone nearly take the back of my car off inching forward to force me to move but I didn't as there was nowhere to go. While someone was trying to turn in front of me I could see their passenger pointing to an empty space directly beside them as they were just sitting there not moving.

    Screenshot shot as an example. Empty space to the right, someone approaching would sit for a minute or two trying to go to an aisle on the left rather than driving further down and looping back.

    Actually not a "Legal loading bay". The harbour master in Howth is a dumb ass and hasn't displayed time plates in the loading bays.

    This one taken yesterday


    this one taken this evening (trying to not look too obvious taking it so picture is crap) same car, blocking different spaces

    The thought of sharing the road with that kind of sociopathic idiot is not a nice one.

    Fingal County Council are certainly not competent to be making decisions about the most important piece of infrastructure on the island. They need to stick to badly designed cycle lanes and deciding on whether Mrs Murphy can have her kitchen extension.

    I met his relative at Taney School, Dundrum this morning, taking not one but two disabled parking bays, with no blue badge of course.

    All part of merc, bmw, Audi and traveller club



  • Registered Users Posts: 28,639 ✭✭✭✭AndrewJRenko


    Driver from fgwilson.ie Trigen chose to block 2/3rds of the footpath on Barton Road East, and leave the driveway nice and empty, squeezing wheelchair users and parents with buggies out.




  • Registered Users Posts: 28,639 ✭✭✭✭AndrewJRenko


    White van man chooses to block footpath on Taney Road, leaving driveway nice and clear.

    Is anyone seeing a trend here?




  • Registered Users Posts: 6,085 ✭✭✭Be right back


    Plenty of spaces to her left and right and not a child in sight!




  • Registered Users Posts: 4,381 ✭✭✭snorlax


    This guy parks every day in the disabled bay. Got aggressive when asked to move ( nicely). It's terrible that because they are aggressive get away with it because they intimidate others. I'm a mom of a kid with a disability. Glasnevin, Na Fianna CLG

    Outrageous, time for some public shaming, catch him on video. Is the parking spot on the club grounds? You could call out the club on Twitter for action.

    Not trying to derail the thread but what if anything can be done with people who wrongly park in disabled parking bays? On a public road / street I'm fairly sure it's a matter for the Gardai but what about car parks owned by the supermarkets?

    Supermarkets could clamp, but I think only the biggest ones do.



  • Registered Users Posts: 709 ✭✭✭Sir Galahad


    Call Roads Policing in Dublin Castle and ask to speak to the member running “operation enable”. That person is heavily invested in blue badge enforcement and for a regular offender like the GAA one he will put in time and visits to the car park to meet & greet the driver 😉

    Whitewater Shopping Centre Newbridge, words fail me, this is really bad and yes damage was done.



  • Registered Users Posts: 73,410 ✭✭✭✭colm_mcm


    Handbrake related?



  • Registered Users Posts: 264 ✭✭pale rider


    Not really based on the positioning of the car in its actual parking bay



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,755 ✭✭✭✭Dtp1979


    You’re not de railing it bud. This is the ‘with chat’ thread.

    yea people parking is disabled spots is a personal red alarm for me. Absolute scumbags. I’d call the guards except they’d take too long so I end up calling the shop and saying it. The dick parked in the spot us usually shamed by one of the staff.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,085 ✭✭✭Be right back


    Didn't even to attempt to park properly. Why have one space when you can have three?!🙄




  • Registered Users Posts: 34,272 ✭✭✭✭Hotblack Desiato


    Bonus points for encroaching into the disabled space.

    These cars should just be towed away and crushed into a cube.

    Tesla driver taking up 4 car spaces in Carrickmines. I've seen plenty taking up 2 spaces but 4 is really taking the piss.
