Motorist stops for a McDonald’s leaving his Vauxhall Astra across FOUR disabled parking bays
- Man left car carelessly abandoned in middle of the spaces in Coventry
- Witness claimed man and girlfriend went in to get a meal on Saturday
- They were said to have been inside McDonald’s for at least ten minute
This selfish motorist has been branded ‘Britain’s most inconsiderate driver’ after he was caught on camera parking his car across four disabled bays.
The unidentified man left his grey Vauxhall Astra carelessly abandoned in the middle of the spaces at the McDonald’s branch in Coventry as stunned onlookers watched on Saturday afternoon.
Witness Ashley Brownsword, 33, claimed the man and his girlfriend had gone in to get a meal from the fast food restaurant at about 5pm and were in there for at least ten minutes.But the driver left his vehicle strewn across four of the six disabled bays available, infuriating scrap yard manager Mr Brownsword from Kenilworth, Warwickshire, who took a photo of the car.
He said: ‘I pulled in to the McDonald’s because my young lad needed to use the loo. But I could not believe my eyes when I saw this bloke parked across four disabled bays, it was just so blatant.
‘I just thought “what an absolute idiot”. It was 5pm, so a busy period for the restaurant and if anybody disabled wanted to use the spots they couldn’t.
‘We weren’t there for too long but they will still there when we left after about 10 minutes or so. I could not believe somebody could be that inconsiderate. It was bang out of order.
There were plenty of other spaces they could have used but they just could not be bothered to park up properly. I was absolutely appalled.’
The image taken by Mr Brownsword was uploaded to Facebook page ‘Spotted: Coventry City’, where it attracted dozens of comments.
Patricia Swindley wrote: ‘Hope to God some of you never have a disabled parent or loved one who needs a disabled space, and you have to watch them struggle because some thoughtless idiot who doesn’t need one has parked in a disabled space. What an awful country we live in when people just don’t care.’
Ben Gough described the driver as a ‘tool’ while Courtney Jade replied by saying: ‘Despicable’.
