Hang your car, not tow

Hang not tow

Towing a car away by another car creates unneccessary consumption on fossil fuel and effects traffic condition. Just hang it. Multiple hanger can be designed to handle multiple parking violations. The parking space that is set free can be used by another car looking for space.

Be careful when you hang ........ [normzone, Oct 04 2004, last modified Aug 06 2008]


       Are you proposing to hang the car in place, or a new design for a towtruck?   

       What about my coffee?

       Some NY tow trucks actually work this way, lifting the car sideways onto the flat bed. (This, I guess, to deal with the tight parking conditions around here.)

       I think he/she means suspending a misparked car above the space in which it is illegally parked via some sort of cradle, thus rendering it immobile but freeing up the space for another user.

       I dunno. This don't just sense. Make.

       So if a car had multiple parking violations logged against it, would the "multiple hanger" be like hanging the hanger on another hanger?

       Oh...I see. The offending car would be hanged by its exhaust pipe from the nearest lamp post. Like Mussolini. Yes, I think I like it.

       Hanging the car in the air makes more sense than getting the orange wheel boot. I suppose that it would bring you more embarassment and ridicule because your car hanging in the air would create a spectacle.   

       It would also make it difficult for you to retrieve your personal items.

       Wouldn't the "hanging truck" take up more space than the absence of the hanged car frees?

       The small sport untility vehicles weigh in at 2000 kg. This sounds quite dangerous.

       Will I park my compact right under a hanging SUV. I guess not !

       It would be quote a shock returning to your car that is dangling there 4m from the ground .   

       What would it take , um ?   

       A mobile lift crane with capacity to lift 7000 kg. A tensile cable of taking said weight . An anchor point on a building , or structure that will take the weight . An anchor point on your car that will take the weight . The people with the smarts to move and attach said weight . $$$$

       No no no, you're all thinking too three- dimensionally.   

       Just shift offending cars through the fourth dimension of time. Once the time on the meter runs out it shunts your car one week into the future and mails you a reminder to come back to collect it then.

       Violator Car B would be shunted strait throught previous violator Car A . My ticketed car becomes a pile of interwoven mass .
