Urban parking is a constant problem for many. You simply CANNOT park anywhere without paying a bloody fortune for the pleasure; that's if you can find somewhere, especially in 'green' Brighton.
My oldest (Kimbo) and I were discussing how we could counteract this wretched modern phenomenon. And I think we may have found the perfect solution.
The answer is to make a large, car-size, version of a workman's roadside tent, with which to cover your parked car. A few bollards to spread about, and a tape recording of hammering, drilling, or pumping, would complete the scene.
I can almost guarantee that you will receive no more parking fines.
