I'm sorry Puntomatt, I can't see you photographs, so don't know all the fact, however, based upon what you've said I have little sympathy for you. As Wrinx correctly said, pavements are for walking on - and parking you car on there might be causing damage to the path. Why should people who have the right to use the footpath have this right taken away from them because you want to park you car in an antisocial manner? It might just be 1 afternoon every couple of months for you, but then if everyone parked their car on the pavement to wash it pedestrians would find the paths almost constantly blocked.
Antisocial? You guys like to think of things in the extreme. I Try to keep my footprint as small as possible so as to not restrict access. Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of a garden or driveway (I usually wash at a friends house) so saying that "what if everyone..." argument doesn't really wash, because we all know that'll never happen.
Clearly you are obstructing access along the path. More to the point, you admit that there are alternatives readily available to you - such as running an extension lead, going to a garage/car wash etc etc. However, it appears from what you are saying that you would rather inconvenience your neighbours rather than choose one of these alternatives. You might wish to refer to the Highway Code.
I have pointed out alternatives, but I think you'll agree that running 3-4 extension cords in series is dangerous plus I'd be running them over 2 further pathways and another doorway!!!
As for garages - as I've stated why should I have to pay for something I can do at home???
The 'multiple route' argument is a red herring if you consider its implications. Would you find it acceptable that someone parked their car in one of the carriageways of a motorway to wash it and refused to move because there were two other carriage ways people could use!!
Not really a great comparison considering the inherent danger of washing a car on the motorway. You could say it's a health and safety issue - would you rather wash your car off the road or on it where you're at risk of being hit by some moron who can't drive.
So, this proves that the problem is not just once every two months...
I was stating that I only require it then not taking into account every man and his dog.
Before accussing others of being petty, pointless and making stupid complaints perhaps you need to reflect on your own behaviour. After all, at the end of the day its you who are in the wrong...
Look pal, there's nothing wrong with my "behaviour". I resent the fact that you're looking at me as some sort of mindless, selfish hooligan due to such a minute incursion of the rules. I'll help people out if they have problem, let them do what they wanna do, I'm generally a laid back guy until someone needlessly make trouble for me.
At the end of the day no one was in danger, no one was abused, no one was displaced and because I decided to something trivia like clean my wheels I get a heap of sh*t of of people like you - I don't need it.
As stated in my first post even the Police thought it was fine and having Wrinx come on here and repeatedly say I was wrong isn't constructive. The Law, just like everything in life is a gradualing scale, if it was black and white all lifers would get life, all rapists would be castrated and everyone who washed their cars on pavements would get 3 points and a £60 fine.
I'm also thinking how well my argument would've gone done had my post count been astronomically high.
Everyday I wonder why I keep coming back here and you know what - I yet to have that question answered.
