    I know how you feel. I always try to park where it is "safe". I have just got back from The Isle of Wight, and was very careful where I parked my motor. I dreaded it on the ferry, but I managed to park in my opioion the best place on the boat.

    That winds me up. Just because other people don't take care of there car, they think you shouldn't either!
    I always park miles away from other cars, but it seems i'm a magnet to idiots.

    Yup ...runs the same ethos as hire cars that always go faster over speed humps than your own car too

    This really grips me.

    I've been sat in the car in the past and people have pulled up, got out and banged the door.

    my words were not fit for this forum.

    If in a pay and display car park, take 2 spaces and pay twice.

    Heard of this being done and the guy got away with a fine as he'd paid for both spaces!
