Advice to motorists

If you have a dodgy motor then may I proffer advice.

Park your car on the street facing the direction in which you wish to travel in the morning. Ensure that there is sufficient space in front of your vehicle for a long wheelbase Transit van with a Luton (box) body.

If you are unfortunate enough to require vehicle recovery by the likes of the AA or RAC the recovery truck will have enough space to park in front of your vehicle and your vehicle will be pointing in the right direction.

Contrast this with the disaster that was my car recovery this morning. It took the manpower from three patrol vehicles to push, pull and tow my car into a position where it was possible to get it onto the back of a tow truck.

Or try a different brand of vehicle?

Actually that's no guarantee.
