Issues over parking space is not something uncommon or unheard of. Many residential areas – in India and abroad – are struggling with the problem of parking vehicles and many people are looking for ways to deal with it. Often, heated discussions and fights erupt over the matter, leaving both parties in a foul mood. However, in a recent incident, a man crossed all lines with his rage over parking space.

An ambulance, whose paramedics were busy attending to a critical patient, received an angry note attached to the windscreen by a resident who complained that the vehicle was blocking his/her driveway. The handwritten note read, “You may be saving lives, but don’t park your van in a stupid place and block my drive.” Parked in a Small Heath area of Birmingham, the ambulance was treating a 42-year-old was a resident of Livingstone House, who later died on reaching the hospital. The incident came to light when a medical practitioner uploaded the image of the note on social media. Soon after, a row erupted on social media with people sharing the note and criticising it.

People were enraged and upset with the words written in the note. They criticised the author for being “selfish” and “indifferent” about the fact that the medical staff was trying to save someone’s life. Sadly, the identity of the person behind the note still remains a mystery. Read some reactions here.

According to the Telegraph, locals and councillors said that parking had become a prominent issue due to parents picking up their children from nearby schools and people trying to avoid the parking fees at the nearby Heartlands Hospital. Several houses on the street have also put up their own signs warning drivers not to block access to their property.
