But I put money in....



Look familiar? Always a hazard when Christmas shopping, your local friendly traffic warden. This just cost her £50. But as she is driving a silly 20 mpg 4x4, I don't feel too sad. I've already made my feelings clear.

Doesn't look like he's too sad either lol he's just casually walking on by while she presumably remonstrates. Looks quite funny, but i wouldn't be laughing if i had a ticket. Then again, i wouldn't be driving a silly 20 mpg 4 x 4.

The curse of the Chelsea Tractor. Perhaps the warden might have been a bit more lenient if she was driving a Smartcar.

Shall we do a DP traffic warden shot Ham? An idea for theme day, what do you think.

How about those hummers? Do you see many in London?

Every time I pass one, I want to flip them off! LOL! But I don't....

The worst part is that it often is driven by a KID (teenager or early twenty-something). Makes me ill.

Wow, this struck a chord internationally. I too hate it when the people in the SUVs drive so close behind me with their lights blinding me (SUV = 4x4). Or pickup trucks. Since when does owning an expensive car give a license for stupid aggression. And yeah I feel a little hostile just seeing a Hummer.

Well I share the 'anti-SUV' sentiment. But I'm afraid that here in the states, probably 30% of the vehicles are SUV sized. Hummers are a not uncommon sight either... with lavish expensive Hummer commercials on TV.

But finally the car buying public has had a dose of reality when gas goes over $3 a gallon.

And now more and more hybrid electric cars are appearing on the road.

Doesn't matter what she is driving - if she has been rooked it is WRONG. Get off your leftie high horses all of you. Older and smaller cars often pollute far more.
