Parking on double yellow lines, or in strictly prohibited areas, is tolerated, but only if there is nowhere better. And it does betray a lack of imagination. Parking on a pedestrian crossing? Well, that's better. Double parking on a pedestrian crossing? Now we're getting somewhere. My personal vote goes to the man who double parked on a pedestrian crossing at right angles to the road.
It is surely time we stopped persecuting this art form, and started handing out certificates of merit to deserving cases instead of parking tickets.
