Quentin Willson's Motoring Column: Kerb this madness.

Byline: Quentin Willson

I WAS walking down the Old Brompton Road the other day when I saw a Post Office van stop to drop off some parcels. While the postie was doing his delivery, I watched a traffic warden sprint towards the parked van to give him a ticket.

The postman couldn't have been away from his van for more than a minute, but when he returned the warden was busily printing out the dreaded piece of paper. The postman gave him a look of utter contempt and drove off before the ticket could be stuck to his screen.

This sort of rabid and obsessional parking enforcement is completely out of order. If a postman can't do his deliveries, what's he supposed to do?

Will we see ambulances and fire engines getting tickets too? What about paramedics, police cars and doctors?

This is taking things to extremes.
