Quick Release Windscreen Wipers

  [vote for,

Once parked, easily remove windscreen wipers and place them inside the vehicle.

The car is now immune to parking tickets.

Just park anywhere, go on. https://www.google....!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

       Well, immune to getting the notice that the city has assigned a fine you'll have to pay whether you know about it or not, one that increases the longer you don't pay it.

       Over here, I think the parking fine notices are self-adhesive, so they can be affixed to your windscreen.   

       The trick would be to pre-empt the parking warden by making your entire car self-adhesive. If the glue were water-soluble, you could remove the accumulated parking wardens by driving through a car wash.

       Love this you rascal.

       "The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal is a vicious wild animal from the planet of Traal, known for its never- ending hunger and its mind-boggling stupidity. The Guide calls the bugblatter the stupidest creature in the entire universe - so profoundly unintelligent that, if you can't see it, it assumes it can't see you." Douglas Adams   

       Then again I have known people who express a tropism towards something like "if everyone ignores it, it ceases to exist" I think otherwise, thinking that there are at least some things which would continue to exist even if everyone ignored them.

       Remove the tires as well so they can't put a lock boot on them. What's better, if you park in the right parts of town, the locals will perform this service for free.

       //Over here, I think the parking fine notices are self- adhesive, so they can be affixed to your windscreen.//   

       Here, it's a paper envelope. It feels quite civilized, its white with a little window. None of that loud black and yellow plastic. Sadly, the envelope is resistant to no types of weather. The traffic wardens don't worry about the adhesive though, they'll shove it in a window seal, door gap, exhaust pipe or nearby school.   

       //city has assigned a fine you'll have to pay whether you know about it or not,//   

       Unless they choose not to enforce. See the ongoing mystery of South Broad St Philadelphia where it's fine to park IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD (link) and nothing happens. I assume this must be mob territory.

       // mob territory //   

       Organized crime, local council ... both demand money with menaces in return for bugger all. Kind of hard to tell them apart.

       It's not difficult, [8th]. One of them is "organized".
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 29 2018

       So not the council, then.

       //Kind of hard to tell them apart//   

       One has a VERY responsive complaints dept.

       ...Why did you all look at me when bs0u0155 said that?

       Why ? "Admiral Byng" ...
