Woman Fought Off the Car Clamp in a 30 Hour Standoff

No one wants a parking ticket, but not everyone has the fortitude (and bladder stamina, if you know what I mean) to fight one quite like this young woman. She fought the clamp ... and won!

A YOUNG carer from Salisbury took a stand against a wheel clamper in an ordeal lasting 30 hours.

Jessica Davey, 22, barricaded herself in her car outside her home at Wesley Court, Harnham, after her vehicle was clamped in the early hours of Monday morning – despite displaying a valid parking permit.

She was worried her Renault Clio would be towed away and she wouldn’t be able to afford to get it back.

For much of the time she was sitting in her car, Miss Davey, who works at Winterbourne Care Home, in London Road, was being watched by clamper Anthony Brindley who was demanding £110 to take the clamp off.

How is this a civil matter? They didn't mention whether it was a private lot, or who the car clamper worked for. I'll never understand how things work in the UK.

Interesting conundrum. Stickers are to be stuck so that they cannot be transfered between cars. My solution would have been to attach the sticker and then argue it should not have been clamped or towed. Methinks there is a larger story.

If you're going to try to remove these, first, try deflating the tire. This worked for me the only time I had to do it for myself.

The other time I removed one was for a friend, the deflating tire trick didn't work. But a cold chisel and a BFH did. Tip: the welds are the weakest link.

Comments are good at the click-thru. I was surprised that while she was told to deal with them in civil court, the bf was arrested for trying to remove it. Talk about a double standard.
