Well it’s the Royal Mail that are caught and getting the public flogging but the problem is much deeper.
Since our local Tesco Express was burnt down my wife and I tend to use these shops on a regular basis and I have often observed the “couldn’t care less” attitude of so many drivers. It’s not just the Royal Mail drivers but “white van man”, “joe public” and also the “yoof of today” that quite unashamedly park in the disabled parking bays or just in the designated turning spaces. They will use the disable spaces even when there are other spaces available just to save themselves a few extra feet of walking. Never a thought for the disabled users.
Of course the problem has been exacerbated by the demise of the Tesco Express which has caused a lot more people to be using the Purbrook Chase Precinct and as we have recently heard, that situation will be ongoing for at least another 18 months.
I’d say that the mail mans actions are just a reflection of society today.
