Cops too quick on the draw

25may03
WHEN police accused John Simpson of parking in a disabled space and threatened to tow his car away, he thought they must have the wrong man.

He had left his Peugeot 405 in an unmarked space 100m from his home, with no disabled bay in sight.

It was only when he went to investigate the scene that the truth emerged.

Council workers had drawn a disabled bay around his car, and added a signpost.

"It's got to be the most bizarre situation I've come across," said Mr Simpson, 55, a London graphic designer.

"The police were very blunt ? indeed, quite aggressive.

"I didn't remember parking in a disabled space ? I thought surely I would have noticed and it's just not the kind of thing I'd do."

A spokesman for Haringey Council said: "It is not normal procedure to paint around a vehicle, but in this case a disabled bay further along the road had to be moved, which may account for the anomaly."


I love the real life stories, they are just too funny.

later.........
