Drivers stunned as car is left on ZEBRA CROSSING at Lidl despite car park being empty | The Sun

DRIVERS were left stunned after a car was left on a zebra crossing at Lidl – despite the car park being empty.

Motorists couldn't believe their eyes on Sunday when they spotted the wee car blocking a pedestrian crossing outside the Hamstead store.

Local resident Mike Mackin snapped a photo of the Vauxhall Astra because he couldn't comprehend the choice of car park – especially because there were so many other options around Lidl.

Mike then posted a photo of the bizarre parking to social media.

He told BirminghamLive: "I was just stunned that someone would park there as there was lots of spaces available.

"It was on a Sunday so it it's empty and never ever full."

Another showed a silver Ford Fiesta parked in front of a charity shop door, blocking it and forcing the shop to shut.

And, there was one photo that showed a Volkswagen Golf left diagonally across a traffic island with its wheels hanging onto the road at both ends.
