Wing mirror worries


Even when it's perfectly possible to park legally with enough space, Bristolian drivers prefer to use the alternative free car park which used to be known as the pavement. Apparently, the need to protect your wing mirrors from getting broken is greater than access for pedestrians. You'd think drivers would be more familiar with the mechanical aspects of their vehicles and that wing mirrors can be turned in towards the vehicle. Obviously not in this case.

Sometimes those wing mirrors just seem to fall off when I'm squeezing past. You just don't get quality these days.

Depends on the nationality. I would avoid hitting german cars' mirrors, especially with the small child I have to look after. French and italian cars have more disposable parts.
