An uncaring driver left a disabled man stranded on a pavement, unable to get through after he halfheartedly left his car parked between the pavement and a zig-zag zone.
The silver Vauxhall Astra was left unattended near another parked car which left very little space for anyone to pass through on Teville Road, Worthing.
The man on the mobility scooter waited patiently even as the driver sauntered out of the barbers where he was getting a haircut on Christmas eve, to move the car out of the way.
The male driver, was halfway through his haircut at Fresh’n Up, stepped out of the salon and confronted the mobility scooter rider.
The young man, in tight skinny jeans and t-shirt, then pointed to the man, saying something before dashing off.
Teville Road, in West Sussex allows cars to be parked on the kerb and was busier than usual as the furniture shop next door to the barbers were having a sale.
The lad pointed to the disabled man but didn’t seem apologetic as he casually stepped out of the barbers he was in
Sauntering to his car, the lad didn’t seem to be in any rush after he caused the inconvenience and made people wait to get through
Although cars are allowed to park on the pavement, a larger car was already outside the pavement, making it hard for any pedestrians to walk through.

He remained calm and reversed as he chatted to another man who pointed to the silver car, both annoyed at the inconvenience.
He looked directly at the man on the mobillity scooter who remained calm and went on his phone
Zig-zag lines mark the approach to, and exit from, a pedestrian crossing.
It also means you must not park on them or overtake the leading vehicle when approaching the crossing.
Parking here, as the young man did, blocks the view for pedestrians and the approaching traffic.
