Images of the scene show the white Audi pictured near St Bartholomew’s School in Rainhill, Liverpool, parked entirely on the pavement.
The car blocks almost the entire way – and was branded as “unreasonable” by the parents.
After the man took to Facebook to lament the poor parking conditions, the photo drew a number of comments, mostly from other angry drivers.
Only a few critics defended the Audi driver, This is reported by the Liverpool Echo.
In the post, the irate parent said: “Why do some people picking up kids from St Bart’s think it’s perfectly acceptable to park on the sidewalk?
“Where’s the common sense to think it’s okay to park your car entirely on the sidewalk?
“How do you think people in wheelchairs, with prams or in this case with a cane on foot get by safely?
“Are they so selfish that they only care about themselves?
“This person (the Audi driver) then argued with my parents who took the picture that as they had an 911 call and had to pick up kids from Rainhill High and St Bart’s it was acceptable, IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE and you did been reported.”
While many were quick to criticize parking, some tried to see both sides of the situation and looked at possible reasons for the “selfish” parking.
One comment said: “I totally understand your frustration but perhaps their child has additional needs and is not street conscious and this is their safest option.”
However, some were not so understanding, branding parking “as dangerous as speeding”.
One comment read: “Obstructive parking should be a traffic offence, if you can’t park safely you shouldn’t drive.
“Three points would have to be on the driver’s license for that, which is just as dangerous as driving too fast.”
