A supercar driver who defended his decision to park in a disabled bay in Cabot Circus has been photographed parking across two spaces in a different car park.
The owner, who asked not to be identified, claimed he had done nothing wrong when parking in a disabled bay in Cabot Circus car park as he said he was told to park in the space by an attendant.
Now another image has emerged of the same car parked across two bays in the car park of the Imperial Way Retail Park B&Q in Bishopsworth.
The Lamborghini, which is worth more than £250,000, was seen parked in a disabled bay in the multi-storey car park for Cabot Circus on Saturday afternoon (August 5).
A notice from car park management was left under the windscreen of the vehicle saying the car should not be parked there but that no further action would be taken.
The car’s owner then contacted the Bristol Post to defend his decision to park in the disabled space.
He said: “When I pulled into the car park in Cabot Circus yesterday, I was stopped by one of the parking attendants on site.
The Lamborghini drew a lot of attention at Cabot Circus car park
“Now overall, I don’t actually mind people having an opinion on how some people park their cars, but in this instance I did nothing wrong.
“There were dozens of disabled parking spaces available and I spent 30 minutes letting two young families sit in the car and take some photographs.
A “polite notice” was left on the car when it was parked in a disabled bay
“When I returned to my vehicle, I was surprised to see the notice which had been put on my windscreen as I had been instructed to park there.
“I visited the parking attendant’s office and when I told the attendant in there how I had been instructed to park there, he apologised and said his co-worker had not informed him.”
The Bristol Post has now been sent a picture of the car, with the same number plate, parked across two bays in the B&Q car park, believed to have been taken at around 4pm on Sunday, July 23.
