Regular visitors to the Aberdeen Cars blog will know that Wednesday is our regular 'PaveParker of the Week' slot, and this most recent week we broke the format by awarding a 'PaveParking Location' award.
Well, we recieved a few complaints, and have decided to rectify matters by awarding a special discretional award, the "Weekender PaveParker". This award goes to the driver of this Aberdeen Car spotted parking on the pavement of Aberdeen's Broomhill Road outside the recently re-branded and re-launched 'Cafe au Clay' (formerly The Ceramic Experience).
So we congratulate our first 'Weekender PaveParker'; the driver of Aberdeen Car Fiat Brava hatchback '80' (?) reg. WN51LWS who demonstrates that double-yellow lines are advisory only (particularly at the weekend), that pavements and pedestrian-build-outs provide demand responsive emergency parking, that accesibility dropped-kerbs assist the PaveParking maneuver and that, when it comes to child safety, the safety of one's own child is greatly more important than the safety of everyone else's - particularly those who might be using the pavement. We all know that pedestrians demonstrate their lack of importance in the most evident way possible - by not being in a nice car.
Thanks very much for that, WN51LWS! We think you're just great!
A blog about cars in Aberdeen.
This is a blog about cars in Aberdeen because most people aspire to the convenience of personal motor transport, pay dearly for the privilege, provide much employment, contribute greatly in taxes, and then people expect them to ‘leave the car at home’, while their money is spent creating cycle lanes and the like for freeloading cyclists.
