Frustrated Driver Throws Paint And Eggs On Fellow Motorists Car Over Parking Spot

Frustrated Driver Throws Paint And Eggs On Fellow Motorists Car Over Parking Spot

A frustrated driver has been slammed for covering a black Lexus in white paint and eggs.

Alasdair Duncan was on his way to work on Monday morning in Ladbroke Grove, London, when he spotted the parked car with wet paint covering the passenger door and splashed over the bonnet and wing.

The car, which was parked with roughly four-foot of space behind it, also had an angry note stuck to its bonnet that demanded 'consider others when you park!'.

The 48-year-old support worker slammed the shocking antics as an 'overreaction' to what he said was 's**t parking' and believes he just missed the angry motorist as the paint was still wet.

Dad-of-one Alasdair, from Lewisham, London, said: "Even if he was parked like that it obviously doesn't justify in any way that [reaction].

"It's an overreaction but an overreaction to what? But it's a bit nuts, isn't it? Somebody is not very settled in themselves. It's a weird thing.

"Perhaps they know the person, perhaps there's some history. You don't know if it's the same person who left the note who [threw the paint] although we presume [it was]."

Alasdair continued: "The paint was wet when I saw it, so I guess it was a fresh action. The paint had no sign of drying. There was a bit of space behind where he was parked and he was parked in a way that perhaps if he'd been further back another person could have been there.

"As lots of people said on my post, you could have easily had a motorbike or two [behind the car] and you get delivery drivers all the time.

"Obviously car drivers [reacting to the post] are thinking 'oh my god, what if it were me' and other people seem to be very happy and gleeful and enjoying the spectacle of it.

"I'm guessing it's a water-based paint because it wasn't super smelly. It's possible that it had been there for just a couple of minutes."

When Alasdair walked past again at about 1pm, the car was still there with no owner in sight. The 48-year-old then posted it to Facebook the same day with the comment 's**t parking in Ladbroke Grove gets paint splurge' only for people to start speculating on what could have happened.

Alasdair's post has since racked up more than 335 comments and 20 shares with one person even branding the vandal a 'psychotic painter'.

Someone wrote: "What is the issue here? Parking four feet into the bay? For f**k's sake," with another adding: "What a c**t you need to be to do that. Get the CCTV and make them pay for the damage."

In a statement to LADbible, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: "An allegation of criminal damage to a car parked in Ladbroke Grove, W10, was reported to police on 2 December.

"It was reported that paint had been thrown over a vehicle sometime between 20.00hrs on Friday, 29 November and 07.25hrs on 2 December. There have been no arrests."
