I’m fed up with selfish drivers using parent-and-child parking spots – so I got my revenge

A DRIVER fed up with selfish drivers mistakenly grabbing parent-child parking spots has revealed how she got revenge.

Amy Fenton was furious after the birth of her daughter when her trips to the supermarket were thwarted by “single, seemingly healthy young adults” occupying the parents’ reserved spots.

writing for LancashireLiveAmy angrily: “I remember making my daily trip to Morrisons one day after a particularly horrible sleepless night.

“There were no more parent-child seats, so I parked elsewhere and slowly made my way to the store, Abigail’s car seat banging against my perpetually bruised shins.

“A young guy in a BMW returned to his car with a sandwich and a can of soda. It was parked in a parent-child lot and I just lost it.”

“I’ve sworn I’ve gotten more looks of disapproval than anyone else in their lives for wrong-parking in the parent-child lot.”

Seats are reserved for parents with children under the age of 12 and are usually located closer to the entrance to the store.

This allows parents to get in and out without having to carry their young children and their purchases all the way across the parking lot.

In fact, motorists can face a fine of up to £100 if they use the car park without children in the car.

While Amy admitted that she would be happy to see people circumvent the rules for older children with disabilities or pregnant women, she found it unacceptable for fit and healthy teens and even single adults to fill them.

She added, “My daughter is now eight (and finally semi-independent, thank God) and even then I sometimes feel a bit cheating parking in a parent-child lot.”

“How on earth a parent of a 17 year old would have the courage to use one of the premium rooms is beyond me.”

It comes after a homeowner was enraged by a “Karen” neighbor who pretended to own the local parking lot and let her play her own game.

Meanwhile, a new survey found the UK to be the worst-hit by road riots, with clashes between motorists increasing by 40% over the last year.
