    especially this one in particular..... every year, and nothing changes. :Doh:

    scarborough council started 24hr parking patrolling a couple of years ago, but i have yet to see a traffic warden (or whatever the modern name is :RollEyes:) after around 7pm in summer.

    police have no say, or at least they aint bothered, unless you park inconsiderately and cause an obstruction etc

    some authorities have employed someone to invent new names for coucil staff such as recyling officer=binman. Traffic wardens have been called (keep it clean) parking ambassadors,visitor superviser,parking attendant and the best one which sums up really what they do=parkiing finace protection officer.

    No need to worry! You see it everywhere, doesn't matter what it is.

    I saw a driver overtake on a solid double, nearly hitting the car in front - Idiot Driver.

    I have seen ramblers leaving gates open so animals escape - Idiot ramblers.

    I have seen caravans being towed at 90mph - Idiot carvanner.

    I have seen cyclists jump red lights, and swear at the people he nearly collides with - Idiot cyclist.

    I have been driving off road, and seen laners going off route to mess about - Idiot laners.

    I have absolutely no doubt that there are many Idiot Camper/motorhome owners out there - like everything in life - not everyone sticks to the rules, or respects the etiquette!

    There are probably more Idiots who are just jealous, or nimby's that don't like anyone else enjoying the environs that may just stir things up for their own amusement...they're just called idiots!
