Finding a parking space in Dubrovnik in the winter is tricky, but finding one in the summer months is nigh on impossible. This Italian driver on Sunday proved that you don't even need to find a space to park your car, just park right in front of the entrance and leave your keys on the dashboard.
There is just so much wrong with this driver's parking that we don't quite know where to start. Firstly she, yes it was an Italian tourist, parked right in the middle of the road blocking the whole car park. Secondly she parked right across a zebra crossing making it difficult for pedestrians to cross the road. Thirdly she parked right up against the steps making it impossible for prams to pass. And lastly she didn't even attempt to pay for her wild parking, although she did get a fine.
And yes she even left the keys on the dashboard. The car was open and by leaving the keys on the dashboard we think she expected some valet parking to move it to an empty spot.
According to a witness the car was parked from 10 in the morning to around 1 in the afternoon. In other words she was sipping her cappuccino on the Stradun whilst causing havoc.
