If they're not going to tow it, he'll get away with it. They're not going to trace the owners address because of a parking ticket. Last month we parked our Austrian registered car at a P&R parking in Hoorn, near the train station. We paid for our ticket, but were unable to park in a designated parking bay. So we didn't and found a note on our windscreen (in Dutch) informing us to await a letter with a penalty notice. Yeah right!!!

Spinoza, do some shopping while you're in the neighborhood:

Help keep legitimate mapmakers and publishers in business.

Come to think of it, is it Piotr71 or Geogregor who works at Stanford's? Maybe he can recommend a pub.

Can't they boot or clamp it? (Different terms for the same thing.)

Heck, it could have been stolen and abandoned. Or the owner could have had a heart attack or something.

That'd be the only reasonable option if they don't want to tow it.

I'll basically have close to no time to visit the city (I'm arriving there at 5.30pm, and my hotel is at Teddington, 1h by train)... but if I manage to free up some time, I'd love to go there

Thus it is kind of that "Schrodinger visit". You will / will not be in London

Are wheel clamps still legal? It's forbidden to use them here since 2012.

Is this today's picture?
I think that car doesn't look like this .It's probably dirty.

Only when triggered by an atomic transition. People always forget that bit about the atomic transition.

A Bulgarian car stayed parked on my street for 15 months. Since no permit or payment is required to park there, is just hogged a space for all that time. Over time, two tires got flat, and the car became very dirty. Then, one day it was gone.

Where I live there was parked a Fiat Tipo with the insurance expired in 2007 and all tyres flat. It was removed only few months ago. Currently there is a car with a temporary Slovenian plate, abandoned for more than a year. It's weird to have abandoned vehicles unnoticed for years in a small town, where everybody know someone's else businesses.

Maybe those cars were used for criminal act,and they got left on other sides of Europe,so that nobody can find them.

I feel bad for him. I guess media significantly contributed it. Students literally put him down. It should not have ended up like that. But why the hell did not they lock the door?
