Any ideas lads? Do you not hate when people park taking 2, 3 or sometimes even 4 parking spaces? When they park so close to you so that you have to get into the car from the passanger side? I have a little idea but first I want to hear what you think about it, what are your ways of rebelling ?

i hate it too but theres is no way of eliminating the problem so its pointless to even think about it. But I'd be interesting in hearing your idea.

i sometimes take two parking spaces, only because i hate car parks, with people swinging doors open(car park dents) and women carrying bags that are more like suitcases (scraping the side of the car) so i park on the line half a space away from either side, hopefully savin my car from unconciderate shoppers

There's a huge thread about this over on ed38. I'll see if I can find it in a minute.

Very funny reading some of the stuff lads have done to get back at people scrapping their cars. One lad iirc put a screwdriver through the door of another lads car, and there's alot of writing on bonnets etc.

The whole "taking up two spaces" thing is very topical too.

I can't say I agree with taking up two spaces. I just generally park in the furthest corner of the carpark possible where there's no cars, and against a wall if possible. That way if people really want to park beside me, only one can.

Well my idea was:

A sticker which will be a pain in the ass to take off, stick it on the window, it will say something like 'Penalty Poo for Shit parking' And itll have a photo of a shit something like this:


there is something like this in Poland but with knobs. Look at the video, it shows how hard it is to take it off the windscreen:

I have provisionally asked the seller if he would make English version of them and it would be possible, I am just checking now if the demand will be high. The cost will be something like 15 euro for 200 stickers but Im not 100% sure yet

the police put a seriously adhesive sticker on your entire windscreen in south africa for parking offences, its hard as hell to get off but doesnt cause any damage.

If that doesn't work then start mixing the Molotov Cocktails!

I think this is the only way that could work. And in fairness, Id say the gards would start laughing if they saw a sticker like that on someones car

I think the sticker idea is a brilliant idea...

but again... id have to agree with Neil... if I saw someone putting a sticker on my car id have the cops on them straight away... its criminal damage no matter what way ya look at it...

Why not, now this might be a mad idea, but, why not park somewhere else???????

They stopped doing that when people started attempting to drive off without removing the sticker
