After parking on the street, sisters discover messages “attached on Range Rover with silicone.”
After parked on a quiet street, two sisters driving matching Range Rover Velars reportedly had notes pasted to their windscreens with glue and silicone.
Ellie Newman, 36, and her sister Jordana Timeyin, 39, park their cars in Whitefield, Greater Manchester, near where they both work. The women, however, discovered sticky notes on their windscreens after returning from their shift at lending firm Bridgewater Acceptances on Thursday.
The following was written in black felt tip pen on the note: “Please don’t park your automobile on this street.
“Residents can’t park on their own street when they go home from work or shopping!!”
Ellie and Jordana, on the other hand, claim that because they pay taxes, they are permitted to park on the street.
Ellie, a Whitefield resident, told the Manchester Evening News: “There are no yellow lines to be found.
“We work in the region, and it is for this reason that we pay road tax.
“Our offices have been in the same location for 20 years.
“This has happened four times so far.
“Our car has been scraped, and there are around four notes left, which have been put on with super glue, gaffer tape, and now silicone.
“This is criminal destruction,” says the narrator.
Rachel Shard, Ellie’s friend and coworker, said she used to park her own car on a nearby street but was also vandalized.
She stated, ” “I couldn’t afford to get my car repaired, so I won’t be parking here any more.
“I believe it is a case of envy.”
Ellie claims to have reported the incident to the police via the internet.
The row erupted after the Daily Express found a loophole that permits random vehicles to legally stop their car outside of dwellings since homeowners or tenants are not given special consideration.
The official RAC parking guide states: “Parking outside someone’s house is entirely lawful, unless the vehicle is blocking a driveway or a wheel is over a dropped kerb.
“Streets governed by residents’ parking permits or any of the restrictions listed above, such as double yellow lines, are examples of other places where parking is prohibited.”
The police force in Greater Manchester has been approached for comment.
