Pedestrian revolt. What happened to a driver who parked on the sidewalk?

Gone are the days when car wipers were parked in vain. Pedestrians have moved to the next level. What happened to a driver who parked on the sidewalk?


A Ford Fiesta owner was punished by a pedestrian who failed to pass him on the sidewalk. He found his car with a suggestive message on the hood. “I have to go on the street with the cart,” the angry pedestrian wrote using the color green. “It is left 1 meter away from the wall,” he added. (see PHOTO GALLERY).

But even the distance of one meter would not save the driver, in this case, from a fine. Article 72 of the republished Emergency Ordinance 195/2002, regarding the traffic of public roads, updated by GEO no. 63/2006, prohibits “occupation of sidewalks with immobilized vehicles”. And when this is allowed, the minimum width of the sidewalk left at the disposal of pedestrians must be at least one meter. For parking to be allowed on the sidewalk, there must be signs and / or markings announcing this.

The image appeared on the Facebook group “You parked like an ox in Bucharest” and attracted hundreds of comments and a wave of antipathy for the one who posted, although he wants to mention that the image does not belong to him, but is taken over. So he is by no means the perpetrator.

In the image, a cloth appears on the hood. Thus, we can assume that the author of the message practically helps the driver to clean his hood.

“You had to use a nail, the marker is erased”, several members of the group suggested, more jokingly, more seriously.

What is the risk of the one who wrote on the hood of a car parked on the sidewalk

“Let’s go to jail!”, Several of those who saw the image demanded in revolt.

However, there are slim chances that this will be the outcome of the incident, even if the authorities find the author of the message.

According to Article 253 of the Penal Code, “destruction, degradation or rendering of a property belonging to another unusable or preventing the taking of measures to preserve or save such an asset, as well as the removal of the measures taken shall be punishable by imprisonment of 3 months. to 2 years or a fine. “

But it is not certain that this is about destruction. The car remains functional, and the marker on the hood can most likely be easily erased.
