Ignoring the issue of vehicles parked in the bus parking in Cotham Road, round the front of Cotham Grammar, there are almost no cars exploiting the parent-parking areas kindly provided by the council. This shows that in secondary schools, most students walk or bus to school. Indeed, a fair few take the train and walk up from Clifton Down or Redland stations. Very few parents appear to drive their kids in -only the very important ones.
This mercedes is one of the exceptions. The van that is blocked is actually a council vehicle on the way to the school; the gardening equipment hints they are going to maintain the greenery. It's not a job where every minute counts, yet they seemed distinctly unhappy that this car was stopping them get through. Can they not see it is a Mercedes? That they should wait patiently while the owner drops the kids off before going to whatever important appointment awaits? Some van drivers have no respect.
