A Taste of Their Own Medicine

A van belonging to LBS Enforcement, a private company that enforces parking regulations, was out and about ready to put a wheel clamp on cars in violation in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England. However, the Southend Council found that the vehicle's owners had not shown proof of taxes paid, so government officials clamped and towed the van! A neighbor took pictures of the incident.
The resident, who didn’t wish to be named, said: “It was such a fiasco and so funny.

“The clampers obviously hoped to take the van away, but the council beat them too it!

“I don’t think they were amused as one of them stuck a finger up.

“I took the pictures because it was so hilarious and I think a lot of people will be very pleased to see them get clamped for a change.”

An employee of LBS Enforcement blamed the matter on a clerical mixup. I'm sure they've heard that story before themselves. Link -via Arbroath

Here's a tip, a cheap cold chisel and a BFH can defeat a wheel clamp in under a minute. Look for the weld spots.

Failing the proper removal equipment sometimes you can remove them be deflating the tire.
