    Question Top Gear in trouble again!!!!!!!

    My god have people got nothing better to do with their time?

    Have just been having a root around and found this......

    http://uk.autoblog.com/2011/08/02/to...led-only-bays/

    I watched it on Sunday and had a good laugh as usual, was very moved by the wounded soldiers hoping to participate in the Paris - Dakar

    I never noticed this, did anyone else? I'd imagine that it is only people that are actually looking to pick fault and go out of their way to find things to complain about, or maybe I'm just being a bit negative.

    Yes it is wrong to park in disabled bays if not entitled to but if they had permission and would have moved if needed and I'd imagine they probably weren't there that long anyway is it really worth all the uproar?

    I know Clarkson and co. are sometimes their own worst enemy but.........

    Am I on my own with this being a bit of an over reaction or do you agree???

    Exactly. Everyone knows how staged Top Gear is. They would not take that shot without being fully aware of where it was, but the shot worked with the cars and themselves sat there, so for a minute why not just park in the disabled bays. People need more hobbies.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Mileage : 72K

    Reminds me of an occasion when someone complained at the college I used to work at that someone without a badge had parked their car in a disabled space. When asked where he parked his car the complainant replied 'I do not drive'. He also asked for the the classes to be disrupted in order to identify the culprit and have the car moved. His request was not granted. At the same college there had been instances of disabled drivers blocking other cars in because there were no spare parking spaces.

    What about disabled drivers taking non-disabled spaces in a busy car park when there are empty disabled spaces? Now that really annoys me.

    An unnecessary and pointless storm in a teacup, nobody was actually inconvenienced and denied a buckshee parking space.

    Oh no, people who aren't disabled parking in a disabled space. That NEVER happens in real life let alone on an entertainment show on TV.

    Hold on a minute.........

    Hmm. In this case, I would accept Top Gear had permission, perhaps not well thought out though.
    Parking in disabled spaces does seem to be a natianal "so what" case. Being a disabled space user, the argument of ATM users etc that "I'm only there a few minutes" doesn't wash, as they often are far longer than that, and with cars queueing for spaces, you can't always stay there blocking access for "a few minutes" waiting.
    Then you end up having to park in one of John K SRI's non disabled spaces, causing serious inconvenience to the people who can't get in the other 99+ non disabled, then struggle to walk the extra distance and back, with shopping, or go elsewhere.
    Top Gear really should have thought about this and set an example. It's not clever, or funny, parking in Disabled, or Mother and Toddler, if you're not entitled, but as long as it's peceived not to matter, people will do it and block the spaces.
