Does parking on a closed road count as a live parking thread? ๐Ÿ˜

So they have closed the road I live on to resurface it. It will be closed for the next two nights. Weโ€™ve had multiple letters from the council, there have been signs up for at least a month and yesterday they painted NO PARKING THURSDAY AND FRIDAY all over the road.

8 cars are still parked there with 15 minutes to go until resurfacing begins. One of the cars is right outside my house and when I saw them out the window, I tried to explain to the two women (looking like they were off for an evening in town) that they were probably not going to be able to get their car until morning but they told me to fuck off!

The road is lorry central, a guy is taking pictures of the remaining carsโ€ฆ itโ€™s all go here.

Anyone know what they do? Do they just resurface round the cars? Tow them away? Do they get brutal? Thereโ€™s a fair few annoyed looking men in hi-vis walking up and down! Should I get wine and a comfy viewing position?

When DH was a student he lived in a flat very close to a major football ground. People would abandon their cars all over the place, it was really quite dangerous as fire engines couldn't get along roads for all the cars double parked. The police would wait for the kick off, then swoop in and lift all the cars causing an obstruction. It was so funny watching the fans come back after the game and walk up and down the street several times before clocking what had happened.

Can you make the nice men some tea and ask them to tow rude ladyโ€™s away first please.

Just gone upstairs to have a better look and there are more cares up the road! Weโ€™ve known about this for weeks and there are signs everywhere. Are people mad?
