The law applies, even to you

Posted on Mon, May 31, 2010 at 12:16 PM

To the driver who parked his car in the fire lane in front of the North Street Sobeys:

You idled your vehicle for a while, trapping me in at the exit (the store's display of flowers & plants blocks the path to the sidewalk) and subjecting me and my baby to your car's exhaust.

When you decided to put it in park, you obstructed a pedestrian crosswalk and the fire lane (which is illegal), forcing me to walk out into traffic to make my way back to the sidewalk. I objected. You had some passengers with mobility issues. This doesn't exempt you from the rules, guy. If your passengers can't make the journey from the parking lot to the entrance, they're in need of a walker or a wheelchair. If they can walk around inside the store, they don't need to be ferried to the entrance.

I'm not trying to be an asshole but I hate it when people impose on others because they believe their needs are more important. And I really hate it when I'm forced to put my kid at risk for the sake of someone else's convenience. Rules exist because of people like you. Try it again and I'll insist that the store and/or police get involved. —Mama Bear
