Ah! *Those* people. Sorry I thought you were talking about those who had
obtained credentials under dubious circumstances, or using someone's tag
when they shouldn't. Me being dumb again :)

It seems that chronic laziness and a tendancy not to give a flying fsck
about anyone else is quite widespread. It's not just handicap parking
spots they target ... they'll park anywhere where it could save them a
few minutes or (horrors!) a little walk. Blocking pavements (sidewalks)
with Chelsea tractors (SUVs) is common ... many pedestrians can't
clamber over one of those (I haven't yet, but I have been tempted to
stomp my size-12 boots over the top of one). I've even seen people
'park' in the middle of a one-lane road to visit a shop, and ignore the
honking queue of traffic behind.
