Living in Marbella, you get used to seeing some fairly, ahem, “interesting” driving.
Especially during summer when the madrilenos come down with their Mercs, Puerto Banus is full of playboys posing with their supercars and tourists getting confused in their rent-a-cars.
And that’s not even mentioning the annual migration of Moroccans hurtling bleary eyed to catch the ferry at Algeciras.
Parking is another minefield. Every long term Marbella resident has a horror story of having their cars scratched, bumped and dented by drivers who simply fled the scene. Or has watched an idiot park too close and repeatedly bang their door on your precious paintwork as they struggle to get out. And then there are those who seem to think that the white line in a parking space has to go in the middle of your car in a Scalextric sort of way. And don’t get me started on the morons who park in disabled spaces “Just for five minutes”.
I would be all for drivers undergoing a refresher course in basic parking, until I saw this. It’s a Sunday lunchtime outside McDonalds so the car hasn’t been parked by a student….
Feel free to send your own observed outstanding parking fails to me. Who knows. We may have an award at the end of the summer…
