This instance points out two things.
· Some people think they can ignore barriers and park wherever they please.
· The workers got on with their job. I'll bet they were chuckling as they did so.
Where I live, roads are narrow and often curved. Elstree is a village in the borough of Hertfordshire, on the former A5 road, which followed the course of Watling Street, about 13 miles north of London.
One car occupies one space almost permanently—doesn't drive away. The owner lives in a cottage about six doors away. But two cars already sit in the garden, so he uses our spot to leave his car. The Highway Department says anyone who pays their road tax can use public parking. And so, people who live right beside the area have to find another perch.
Maybe the island will sink under the weight of all the cars.
