Driver DEFENDS deliberately parking his ageing Nissan across two spaces saying he is fed up of his cars getting dented and insists he always buys two tickets

  • Chris Jameson claims he has had eight rare cars dented or scratched since 2012
  • The 27-year-old has vowed to park across two spaces after buying a rare Nissan
  • Mr Jameson, of Lowestoft in Suffolk, pointed out that he always buys two tickets
  • When he bragged about his technique on social media, many were unimpressed

A petrolhead who got so sick of his beloved cars getting dented has bragged about deliberately parking across two spaces as a ‘f*** you’ to bad drivers.

Shop manager Chris Jameson has owned eight cars since 2012 and claims each one has been scratched or dented by careless drivers, costing him thousands in repairs.

So after buying a Nissan Fairlady 300Z in October, Mr Jameson vowed to park the 27-year-old Japanese import in the middle of two spaces to avoid any scrapes. 

But defending himself against those who branded his parking ‘selfish’ on social media, Mr Jameson pointed out that he does in fact pay for two tickets.

Mr Jameson, from Lowestoft in Suffolk, said: ‘I’m considerate about where I park. I haven’t done it to be a d**k deliberately.

‘I’m just trying to minimise the damage to my car as much as I can. I pay for two tickets. I can see why people get p***ed off when people park badly – I hate that myself.

‘But I always park well within the lines, leave a good space either side of my car. I didn’t deliberately just go and do that.’

The 30-year-old’s technique has become known as ‘Clarkson parking’ after Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson was spotted parking across two bays in 2016.

He added: ‘It’s a Japanese import – a really rare car. I’ve only had it a few weeks.

‘The car I had before this was a BMW and that was damaged, my Audi TT before that was, and my Nissan 200 SX had the same thing happen. And my Toyota before that.’

When Mr Jameson bragged about his technique on social media, many were unimpressed by his antics.

One user wrote: ‘It’s difficult enough trying to find a space without emasculated drivers taking two spaces for their toy.’

One woman said: ‘So where does it end? Can he take up 2 lanes on a motorway for fear someone may pull into him.’

Another pointed out that buying two tickets may not save Mr Jameson from being slapped with a parking fine.

One wrote: ‘The contract entered into normally state you need to park between the lines of A (meaning one) space. So you could buy 100 tickets and still get a notice.’
