Times must have changed at Weston Super Mare.
We were near there many years ago with the motorhome. Having parked previously on the old railway station carpark, which was at the time council owned. This time we were met by a female jobsworth who said we could not park on the carpark as we were too big.
Now this said carpark was also a wagon park and when I pointed out that larger vehicles than my 25ft motorhome used the carpark she said yes but motorhomes cause the pot holes and tear up the tarmac.
. Told her she must be joking I drove HGVs and PSVs and articulated HGVs were the worst offenders for causing the said damage.
We got into a real argument.
I advised her to take down the signs she was posting because they were in imperial not metric and illegal. The signs stated that only vehicles up to a maximum weight of 15cwt could park on the carpark.
There was quite a few 4x4s there and I asked if she was going to remove them as they were over 15cwt. This was when Britain had to use metric measurements first and imperial second and penalties were being enforced if traders were not complying.
Couldn't argue with that! So she got in her car and left and the attendant let me in free because I had put his female boss in her place.
