Congratulations to this week's PaveParker of the Week!
The driver of Aberdeen Car Vauxhall Zafira Estate 1.8i Elite (oooh!) reg. YC08GYO demonstrates full PaveParking outside this house in the city's Mayfield Gardens.
This perspicacious PaveParker is demonstrating his public-spirited safety consciousness; can you see the advanced aspect of his chosen parking strategy?
Yes, that's it! He has noticed the yellow Fire Hydrant sign. Concerned that should the worst happen (God Forbid!) our award-winning PaveParker of the Week has made sure that his rear offside tyre does not obscure the hydrant cover - you can see it in plain view, just beneath the bumper overhang. So, in the event of a dangerous fire, the emergency services will be able to use the hydrant without too much difficulty. A little difficulty, yes (it's best to make sure that these people know that they are public servants - not the other way round). We agree; it's probably best to inconvenience them just a little, but not too much.
So we say, well done, YC08GYO - the houses of Mayfield Gardens are quite safe, thanks to your considerate and advanced PaveParking! And, you've done just enough to remind the feather-bedded public sector workers of their place in the hierarchy. Beneath and behind you!
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.
