Stupid Parkpermit In Douglas

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I'm living in Douglas and just bought a VAN.

I'm living in a Disc-Zone Area and was going to get a Park Permit for my VAN,

but they told me that I will not get a Permit for my VAN!?

How stupid is this please? I just bought the VAN and that's my only vehicle and

I'm just using it for privat stuff, I do live in Douglas and I can not

Park my privat vehicle in front of my home?! wtf - I'm so angry and I don't get that s.... sry but :angry:

If I would park the VAN out of the disc -zone I would need to walk nearly one mile to my VAN.

But they can not be seriously, we are not in NY or in Sydney, that is just a small Town with 15k residents and

I'm not allowed to park my VAN all day long in front of my home without changing the clock every 2h??? wtf :huh:

Is there anything what I can do? thanks a lot!!

(and it's actuelly not an option for me to move or to sell the VAN)

1. Population is 26,218 (2006 census), not '15k.'

2. Disc zones are very clearly marked as being for 'cars - not vans.'

3. Live with it, or live elsewhere.

should have checked before you bought, but I agree its a bummer.

 

may u right, but I never ever thought that you do not get a permit for ur only one pri. vehicle - I mean the vehicle belongs to category "B", so actuelly there is no different to a big car or to a 4x4 or something else it's still the same for me, I would understand if it is a Truck or a different category... ohh dear....

And the best thing will be, when I will park my VAN out of the Disc-Zone-area round Douglas - the Neighbours at this place - will ring the police when I leave the VAN for a while. I know it, it did happen to me with an older Car before!

Why so many people have a problem with parking here? the same thing round the airport? if someone left his car there for a while, even there is no disc-zone - some Neightbours get's so angry if u do so? what's the matter here, there is so many space, why some people have such a problem with it?? sry but I don't get it!!!

I want a van, but before purchasing one I checked and discovered that you can't get a parking permit for one. So I bought a car instead.

I've also had a garage built, so I can now get a van if I want.

Yeah I have the same problem with my van (although I'm more chilled about it now) you just have to get used to parking it on the outskirts of Douglas. Usually outside some irate household who leave little notes on your van asking not to park it there.

 

You'll do a lot of walking that's for sure.

Yes, but you see, rod doesn't have a van... he has a VAN!

I think also the fact people don't want a fucking ugly transit van or moptor home blocking light right outside their window becaause the owner has another car outside their own house also has some effect.

But you can park after 6pm anyway, so that defeats the object of your complaint, when everyone turns up after work in their vans.

 

I don't use my van for work so I park it outside of the disc zone. Smack bang outside of someone's house. Unlucky.

Yes yes, but even if rod had a car, it would be a CAR!
