    If the car is parked so you can’t get her pushchair through on the pavement…, it might make the owner think twice before they do it again.

    Wilful damage to property is wrong and two wrongs don’t make a right. I struggle to dredge up sympathy for people whose cars get damaged when they park like pillocks and take the cowardly stance of “I wouldn’t have done it but I’m not too sad that someone else has.” 🙂

    How much damage can you do with a cereal box?

    It’s the sickening smugness on Facebook that gets me.

    Horrible.

    Careful- she has a cornflake box and she knows how to use it.

    Facebook is full of mongs. Give up.

    I faced this dilemma about 15 minutes ago, and her point of view is valid. If you actually understand what she’s saying, she’s faced with a choice of squeezing through a narrow gap on the pavement or using the road. I think she’s taken the right choice.

    I often fold in wing mirrors on cars that are blocking the path. No damage done but may encourage the driver to leave more room next time.

    Forget prams, it’s wheelchair users I feel sorry for. They really are stuffed if some idiot blocks the path.

    Like I said I agree with it being a bit crap when people park on the path making it hard for pushchairs and prams and disabled scooters etc but to deliberately damage or attempt to damage someones else stuff is wrong in my opinion.

    Or is it just the way Ive been raised??

    “We shoved someone’s wing mirror in the other week to get our pushchair through and the glass fell out of it. Shame xx”

    Obviously a low value 1970s car then, no harm done. Door mirrors on the other hand…

    we have all faced this problem [ and it is a pain with a pram] and you squeeze through getting annoyed.
    I have never deliberately damaged a vehicle for doing this – you would be there all day in some areas- and as DD notes two wrongs dont make a right.

    Folk arguing on the internet about folk arguing on the internet …priceless 😉

    Lol at the defenders of property.

    “Just walk in the road you lazy b@tch…”

    Stop parking like arrogant selfish barstewards, easy.

    If you park on pavements you run the risk of upsetting people, personally I don’t blame them, even the cereal offenders.

    Quite nice to know I’m not missing anything by not being on Facebook.

    Heated mirrors?

    Was it deliberate damage? Just sounds like she didn’t go out of her way to avoid the car or keep her shopping off it. Should everyone shuffle along carrying their shopping at head height just to stop it rubbing?

    You only need heated mirrors if it’s a bit Frostie

    I always park my car with two wheels on the kerb pavement, still ample room to get past, but otherwise i’ve had countless wing mirrors knocked off from passing cars. Everyone in the area does it on main roads.

    I wouldn’t deliberately damage a car in those circumstances, but if the pram was to accidently scratch it all the way down the side I wouldn’t lose any sleep.

    Samuri, why didn’t I see that response coming!

    Grrrr!

    I often carry a cereal box for those idiots that park in cycle lanes…

    Ive tried to say that to them all that I agree with it being a pain in the **** when cars park on the path etc but willful damage is out of order in my opinion….

    They are just not getting my side though……….

    If you ran over my child, a child who has to walk in the road because of a car parked on the path, as you were driving along on your way to work….who would you blame Steve . As often when cars are parked on the path you cant see the road properly…..is it a; my fault for not watching my child on the path…b; the owner of the car parked on the path or c; your fault for not being aware then when you see a car parked on the path there might be a family walking on the road to get past it?

    I’m obviously missing the bit where your friend says she deliberately damaged the car. She doesn’t actually say that does she?

    I think you’d struggle to leave so much as a mark on a modern car with a cereal box….

    Unless it’s a Zafira, in which case you’ll easily scrape off the cream cheese paintwork down to the primer 🙁

    Hopefully she left a note if it was accidental. 🙂

    He’ll crunchies nut when sees the damage.

    Give her a Frostie reception when you see her.

    It is a major hassle with young kids having to walk them into a road to get around cars on pavements, and while the risk is small – when it’s your kids, any risk is significant.

    Car drivers don’t pay pavement tax.

    On facebook one of my “friends” has been bragging about how they dragged a box of cornflakes down the side of a car as it was parked on the path and she seems happy that she has.

    This is what she put ……….”Would like to say a huge sorry for the car I dragged my huge corn flake box along the side of….but if you want to park on the path with no consideration of pushchairs or any other pedestrian then hard poo!!! Cause it was either that or I risk walking my son in the road…obviously the corn flake box won xxxx”

    Ive been trying to get her to see that yes although the car shouldnt be parked on the path etc it doesnt give her the right to deliberately damage someones car but she and the rest of her cronies seem to think they have done nothing wrong…….

    “We shoved someone’s wing mirror in the other week to get our pushchair through and the glass fell out of it. Shame xx”

    Am I the only one who thinks this is wrong ???

    I just cant believe it really !!
