Sorry its downright appalling that you suggest that. How do 4 flat tyres solve the issue for you? If anything the car will be parked there for much longer. I really dislike this tendency to take the onus on to oneself to punish. Please never do that to anyone for that matter.

I guess you didn't read the sarcasm in that post. I will definitely leave a note - but not do anything harmful.

Might be possible to get five cars parked there. But that guy would not be able to get out again without two cars leaving before him.

Would be a shame if they had parked there and left for a business trip abroad

I suppose security guards will be there in the parking lot. They should direct people to park their vehicles within the slot like we see them do when we visit shopping malls.

I think, 2 cars should have been parked both at front and back to complete the "I".

Unbelievable that such moronism exists! Or did he just park with his handbrakes off?

Thing is people who do this rarely realize that what they do causes so much inconvenience. Or they are just not bothered.

OT: Is this ASV sun tech in Thoraipakkam?

When I was a teenager, I saw the red car parked parallel to the kerb when spaces had been marked for diagonal parking. So, I (in the green car) parked in that spot, making it impossible for the red car to get out, and walked away.

When I had finished my work and came back to the car, I saw the car owner fuming at the "inconsiderate" behaviour of people and shouting at the parking attendant for allowing that green car to park that way. Parking attendant was not interested in listening to the story. So I hung around for a while and watched the fun!

Red car owner noticed me enjoying myself at his expense, and asked me if I owned the green car. I shrugged "no" - I did not look 18, so he proceeded to ignore me.

I took the car out after letting him cool his heels for another 15 minutes. The look he gave me was priceless!

Saw it parked like that for 2 days late last week. Was gone after the weekend though.

There are security guards, but not enough to handle all the cars/bikes that come there. And anyway, this is about common-sense, not something that needs others to prod us to do.

That lady who parked must have been specially gifted . A note stuck to her windshield should propably send the message home. Kiloalpha, that was funny.

Lol that we can call the fiber of death, just wondering how the fellow is maintain stability over a hump or pothole, plus he needs to avoid getting close to other bikers or car.

He needs a sticker at the back "Wide Load, proceed with caution"

Have you tried posting this on the BTP FB page or their app?

I agree with you, the amount of risk these guys take and also the risk they put others under, they deserve a harsher punishment than a mere Rs. 100 fine.

Spotted this moron somewhere between Karur/Dindigul last month. I was cautious while overtaking as the total width was more than a truck/bus. He was doing 80-90 also
