Advanced search think it's being a bit cheeky parking in a parent and child space when you don't use a car seat?

Now I know it says "parent and child" so any child is technically included, but I thought the point is to give you extra room to manoeuvre a push chair/trolly and/or open your door fully to get a kid into a car seat. I only have a two door car and need a ton of room to open it all the way to get my boy into the back seat.

Today at the grocery store I saw a dad with his 10 year old or so son getting into their car in the parent and child zone. The kid got into the front seat on his own. Frankly I think this guy was taking the mick, especially because they were giving me the eye until I actually pulled a child out of the back.

Opinions please!

<puts out homemade scones, jam and clotted cream>

if i leave these here while i put DD to bed can you save my seat please?

As my brother helpfully pointed out when parking in one with my mum - it says Parent and Child. She's the parent. He's her child. He's 38 tomorrow.

Op ..... I'll be nice, search parent and child spaces. You will then find the mumsnet consensus. It ain't pretty grin
