Residents of Huntley Street, Darlington were warned well in advance of a planned resurfacing of their road, but the owner of a BMW was thought not to have understood the message so did not move his car , reports Teesside Live.
Result: the paving work had to be done… around the car! A funny situation that the inhabitants did not fail to share on social networks. ” Whoops. Someone didn’t read the road signs,” one netizen commented, while others wondered if the owner was on vacation or hospitalized.
“As the vehicle in question was left in an area without parking restrictions, we cannot take action against the driver for these facts,” said the municipal authorities. Attempts have been made to contact the owner to ask him to remove it but so far without success.
