Bloke Gets Creative To Avoid Parking Fine And Lifts His Vans On Top Of Apartment Building
Vehicles are no longer luxuries in the present times as having a car is necessary. But every vehicle needs its space, aka parking and there's no denying that parking issues are universal. Thank your lucky stars if you have an assigned space for your vehicle because parking is a nightmare otherwise.
Densely populated cities have made parking issues worse. A man in Taiwan got creative when the officials repeatedly fined him for parking his vans in front of his apartment building. The bloke took an extreme step to fix his van a "proper space" because every other option failed. When the situation intensified, he managed to lift his two vehicles to his apartment building's rooftop. The Taiwanese man had two vans, so he positioned one on a higher part of the roof while the other van's part slightly protruded out of the building's parapet. LOL! Extreme problems, extreme solutions, right?
It worked for a while but soon the neighbors started raising concerns. The man's parking decision troubled his fellow residents but the anonymous man couldn't care less. When residents saw the vans parked on rooftops, they reported the incident to local authorities as it seemed dangerous, reported Central News Agency (CNA). When he was approached for an answer, he told the China Times, "It's not going to affect the building, don't make a fuss." Woah, entitled, eh? He put all the concerns to rest by reassuring distressed people that his parked vehicles will cause no damage to the building.
Additionally, he said that "the building was made of steel and concrete," per LadBible. This means the strong materials shall easily support the weight of the two vans. But people didn't seem convinced and demanded the man take down his vehicle from the roof. What could've been his response? Of course, he refused at first. In the end, he did comply with the authority's command. He brought his vans down but insisted he had not violated any law. But we're still left wondering how he managed to get those vans up.
Well, the man in question was reportedly a civil engineer. Cars around the building are positioned in extremely small places and it's difficult to move them around. There are certainly no access points big enough to lift the vans to the rooftop. So what did he do instead? He hired a crane, duh! The bloke also shared that he used the vans as storage space as he could not fit all his civil engineering tools in his house, reported by EBC News, per Mothership. According to local district chief Lin Kuan-Jen, "The two vans have been there for two years," per CNA. Lin said they informed the van owner to remove them after residents showed concern. All said and done, we're still in awe of the man's efforts to park the vans on the residential building's rooftop. Bold and creative. The man also revealed that he will move the cars to the mountainous area of Taoyuan sometime in October 2023. We wish him the best.
