Speak for yourself. Some of us walked or cycled or took the bus, and weren't picked up by dad or mom.

Jeez, that's awful, people defecating freely around your estate. You should definitely do something about that.

Worse yet is if a visitor was to be clamped, crazy embarrassing. Gates are the answer the question is who do we have to pay to get gates .
Karen will do the clampers heads in, and they'll be well used to it. Karen won't whinge her way out of this one.


The only embarrassment arising from a visitor being clamped is the embarrassment of the visitor for parking illegally. No-one else has anything to be embarrassed about.

Then don't park on roads. This is your problem to solve. Your ignorance isn't someone else's problem to solve. Get your own act together and don't park on streets until you know what the story is.

Actually, quite a few do live in managed estates, like the K Club, Mount Juliet, and what was the fancy one in Malahide for the northsiders (yer man from Anglo Irish and some of the Boyzone or Westlife lads).

I do and I have done all of those things when older not as a 6 year old, young children need to be accompanied and you're not going to walk or cycle in the hammering rain.

I can assure you I did walk by the age of 6 and no, lifts were not provided just because it was raining. It's Ireland ffs, that's every second day!

This thread reminds me of an apartment block i rented in years ago.
There was loads of parking in the place. So much so that there werent even any designated parking spaces. No need.
There was a creche around the corner on a main road and some of the parents you to park in there when bringing their kids to and from creche. No problem at all. So much space to park.
So this one resident banded a few others together and got 2 space marked out for each apartment. So people used to park in the no marked out space. Still loads of room.
Next thing there was a clamping company brought in. And there is the woman every day sitting at her window checking and calling the clamper when a car would park there.
It got so bad that visitors to people living there were getting clamped.
Had she nothing else to do but spend her days working on a cause for no other reason than she didnt want people parking in HER apartment block car park.
People need to lighten up.

We've an automated gate where I live. It stops working occasionally, it's 50/50 if it's open or closed when it gives trouble. There's a way to open it when it won't open using a mechanical key in a locked box. The insurance company did indeed request modifications to the gate in the last few years to ensure it's safe (sensors in case there's someone in it's path etc etc) ............. Overall, it's brilliant, works well and doesn't cost much when the cost is spread out.

you think that's bad? Near where I live there is an apartment block with the car park on the ground underneath (the block is effectively on stilts). One of the residents got out of his car one day and was approaching the lift shaft. Out from behind a pillar steps a woman who demands to know who years and wary is going. He explains that he is a resident of 10 years standing and continues. 30 seconds later before he gets to the lift shaft another woman appears and a similar conversation ensues.
These women were standing behind pillars in the car park trying to catch trespassers, not even sitting in their apartments.

Lots of people walk or cycle in the rain, though I would disagree with the other poster about how often this happens.

I'd agree about accompanying a six year old, but there are lots of children of an age not necessarily requiring adult accompanying being chauffeured short distances to school, just because.

I walked to school in the rain, snow, hail and wind. I also walk to work in the rain as well, I wear a raincoat! Irish people are so reliant on their cars, no wonder obesity is at such a high level.

I never said you didn't.

I said young children need to be accompanied and not drowned on the way there or home because that's a fantastic way to get sick.

If you think it's alright to send a small child off to school in the rain on her own maybe you should talk to some other parents because it's not.

As an adult you can make a choice for yourself but as a parent your default choice will always be the option that keeps your children warm, dry and safe. Your choice will not be cold or wet or unguided for children. The latter choice may even be ascribed as neglect.

There are lots of warm and dry places to exercise, obseity is a function of available lifestyle and inequality, simply more income allows better choices and better lifestyle.

Such dramatics over a bit of rain. Just clad the kids in a rain gear and wellies and walk with them to school. They're not made of sugar you know. This notion that their walking in rain is somehow neglectful and unsafe is just ridiculous. Poor Oisín and Fionn can take a bit of splashing in the 'hammering' rain if parents dress them properly. No need to be clogging up the whole place and trespassing with SUVs just to keep them 'warm, dry and safe'. Such hand wringing nonsense.

It's actually a fantastic way to stay healthy, and to set down habits of a lifetime that don't encourage obesity and don't poison your neighbours and classmates with toxic emissions.

I recall some research showing how children perform better academically in school when they use active modes of travel.
