Selfish drivers slammed for ‘self-permitted’ parking after £230,000 from Ferrari and £150,000 from Mercedes dumped in illegal spaces
Drivers of INTITLED supercars have been slammed for having “more money than courtesy” after parking their engines in illegal locations.
Residents of Melbourne, Australia say they have been driven mad by owners of luxury models, including Mercedes and Ferraris, who have left their cars wherever they please.
A brand new £150,000 Mercedes Benz Coupe has been pictured shamelessly parked on a pedestrian crossing at Melbourne Zoo.
Fed up, a passerby shared a photo of the brazenly parked motor on social media on Thursday with the caption: “This tool at Melbourne Zoo today.”
Nearly 1,000 people piled in to slam the driver in the comments on Reddit.
One user said: “Call a tow truck, these c****s need to learn they can’t park where they want just because they gave away a nice car.”
Another added: “Seems perfectly reasonable to walk on top of the car or push a pram in front.
“It always amazes me when people with these expensive cars put them in danger.”
A third commented: ‘I can confirm that on the way back to our car this car was fined (although something tells me that won’t phase this person).’
Meanwhile, another cheeky supercar driver outraged other motorists by leaving his £230,000 white Ferrari in a clearly marked ‘no stopping’ zone in a city park.
A furious passerby shared a photo of the illegally parked car on Reddit with the caption: “More money than courtesy”.
One user said this particular car was a repeat offender in the area, with the driver often parking wherever he pleases.
Another lambasted: ‘When you have that kind of money, a parking ticket is usually pocket change.
A second replied: “Right. Take a photo, with the license plate included, and inform the appropriate council.”
In Melbourne, fines for parking violations range from £55 to £110.
Meanwhile, near Dubai, thousands of supercars are rotting away in a junkyard after being abandoned by wealthy owners too lazy to resell them.
In scenes that would bring any supercar fan to tears, the world’s most luxurious engines, including Lamborghinis worth over £165,000, are left to gather dust in the desert.
Each year, up to 3,000 cars, including exorbitantly priced Lamborghinis and Aston Martins, are abandoned in Dubai.
From Rolls Royces and Ferraris to Bentleys and Mercedes – many of which are worth millions of pounds – once-gleaming models are doomed to decay.
Some were dumped by high-profile businessmen who went bankrupt before fleeing the country to dodge tough UEA debt laws and potential prison sentences.
Others are dumped by wealthy owners with so much money they’re too lazy to sell their used cars.
In other cases, drivers have crashed their stuffed cars and decided they should spend more to fix it – so just buy a new one and leave the motors stuck.
