Partially Disabled

This car on Cotham Road South is parked with the rear wheels in a disabled parking slot. A slot that exists so that the wheel-chair bound resident of the house immediately adjacent to the parking place can get to their house from their car. But not today.

Someone has actually stuck a note on the window of this Alfa Romeo #BG51ZSR


"Why have you parked in a disabled slot? You have caused a wheelchair user great difficulty getting in to his house".

Also, interestingly enough, is a note from the police, something tucked under the window that wasn't noticed until later. I wonder what it says? Possibly a please-don't-do-that-again note, because we clearly don't have a functional vehicle towing organisation to deal with such incidents

But here's a thought. What if they are partially disabled? Like a sore foot, a bit of a limp or something. Or the driver hears voices telling them to overtake on blind corners. Nothing too serious, but inconvenient enough that having partial access to a disabled slot takes the edge of things. That could explain this driver's actions.

It's an Alfa. It's obviously broken down, and is awaiting the services of the local friendly Alfa garage to relieve the owner of an arm and a leg. Again.
