The parking standards at Tesco...

The place to socialise, and relax, if it doesn't fit into anything below it fits here, so tell us that joke, or share that story of your last off-road escapade, but remember new comers the virtual drinks are on you!

The parking standards at Tesco...

Saw this happen today...

Woman driver, on her phone, drove through an empty space then instead of braking she floored it. And she had kids in the back. Thankfully there were no injuries to them or any pedestrians. I took this pic then got told by a spotty Tesco 'yoof' to stop. I told him exactly where to 'park' that idea...

She will probably try and blame it on the kids distracting her

I freakin' HATE these jumped up little bullies who think they have some kind of authority over the rest of us, and abuse that "authority" by making illogical demands. It's about making them feel big usually, not about the actual rules.

UK law specifically states that you can photograph anything you want on public or private land unless there is a reasonable expectation of privacy, or the premises has a specific exemption under law (such as the London Underground). Alternatively, if a person wants to prohibit photography on their land or from within their premises, it is a legal requirement that they place signs at every entrance and exit specifically stating that photography is prohibited. You are also not permitted to rest your equipment on anyone's property (including the floor) which means putting your camera on a wall to take a timed shot, or using a tripod would also be deemed illegal. That is only the case in the UK, excluding Scotland (where it's perfectly legal to put your tripod down on private land).

This basically means that in any publicly accessible building or land area photography is legal unless clearly signposted as otherwise. It also means that a "reasonable expectation of privacy" would make it illegal to photograph someone through a curtain that had not been drawn fully, as this can be described reasonably as a mistake, and that the person inside had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

I've had a security guard order me (and some people with me) to delete photographs taken in a public place before, because the land was technically private land, but open to public thoroughfare. I politely told the guy that no, I would certainly not delete the photographs. When he started to get threatening, I told him that he was in breach of harassment law, and that if he touched me or my equipment, I'd have him arrested.

His boss turned up seconds later and was *SUPER* polite! I agreed to move to another area because he asked nicely. But I made it clear I wasn't deleting any photographs, nor were any of the people I was with.

Yep I know my law too matey. The are just little Hitlers with very poor egos that need inflating. Hopefully he got fired as I did really complain to a manager (another zit strewn urchin) about him.
