A parking problem!
‘I am a resident of Livingstone Road, Hove. In 1955 I bought my first old Morris 8 and my problems began. Outside my house is a lampost, that has been in position since the house was built in the 1880s. Why oh why! did Hove Borough Council have to position the post flush with the kerb.
With idle intent I have always tried to park outside my own house, the times I have slightly scraped the post are legion. The only time I have been happy parking is when the colour of my car was British Racing Green.
As the years passed and my neck became creakier I made myself a promise – if the only parking position left is outside my own house – to hell with it – I will park in another street.’
