Conversation with an Addison Lee driver in Horley yesterday.

"What sign?"

i'm always intrigued by the fact that in Blackheath (south London) where I live, there is one car that appears to be permanently parked on the double yellow, on a corner, outside a specific shop yet, despite the fact that the local wardens seem to find you every time you park with one pair of wheels slightly the wrong side of the dotted line marking the border between residents' and businesses' parking places, never seems to be ticketed. 

I presume the owner has a special financial arrangement in place with the wardens.

Fire engine can't reach fire due to parked cars. Worth noting that the cars were not actually parked in an illegal place. Ironically, the fire started in a car.

given that it would occupy 4 spaces wherever it stopped, unless there were dedicated van spaces it is actually considerately parked, avoiding blocking adjacent spaces and through ways. If you've ever had to pilot a van like that in a standard parking area, you would realise that quite quickly.
