OscarTamerz: Does anybody actually think some Benz owner is going to leave his car where it's going to get tar on it except for the douchebag bird cage lining writer? It's a parking lot and he parked there long before the cordon went up and he'll have the parking stub to prove it as well as surveillance footage. The asshats at the paving company and the train company will be splitting the costs of a new paint job, new rims and "tyres" and if he plays his cards right an empty suit bureaucrat or 2 will get shiatcanned like a tuna.
edmo: Somebody will troll here eventually about how lazy those union workers are for not pushing it off to the side and finishing the whole lot.
Aulus: The two times I was in Rome in the early Seventies, I noticed a lot of drivers would park on the sidewalks, especially near the fora. One day I witnessed one get removed from a sidewalk on the Via Cavour. They brought in a flat bed truck with a crane, placed four hooks by each wheelwell and lifted it up onto the truck. The Italian grad student I was with told me they trucked them out of town, about halfway to Tivoli to a lot where the office was open oly for half an hour a day and it cost something like $200 to get your car out.I took a photo of the lift, when I'm home from work, I'll see if I can find it on my computer and post it.

Thraeryn: cunning stunt
Satanic_Hamster: Was doing a job in New Jersey years back and a car was blocking one of the entrances to the tunnel we were working on. While this wasn't the only entrance / access point to the tunnel, it was the only one were we could pour concrete down and we had to schedule shutdowns / no parkings on that road two weeks in advance. Locals were notified, signs put up, etc.Normally the cops would be real quick to tow cars for us but that day there were some problems else where in the city so the cop told us; "Listen, I know you have to get this car moved so you can start, but it's going to be two hours. I'm going to go around the block to get some coffee and it's gone by the time I get back I won't ask questions."We moved it with a CAT 980 front end loader w/ forks on it.[www.tradesparq.com image 800x407]
ecmoRandomNumbers: Fear_and_Loathing: They could have had it towed. I hope they at least had it booted.And then put it on a ship to Denmark.
