Driver defends his decision to take up FOUR spaces

There’s nothing worse than driving around a full car park struggling to find a spot and you see someone parked like this.

This photo of a selfish parker using four spots for his one car went viral last week and, of course, had people up in arms.

But now the driver has come out and defended his decision.

While shoppers were left fuming, he’s said he doesn’t want “idiots” ruining his ride – as you would expect that hasn’t made people back off.

The photo was posted on Facebook page Spotted: Spalding with the caption "Fabulous parking in Spalding!".

But rather than cringe at the fact he has been publicly shamed online, a guy by the name of Fabio Silva came forward claiming he was the owner.

And tried to explain.

"This is jokes. Nothing quite like parking and taking up 4 spaces. Start spending hundreds of pounds on your car and then you'll understand where I'm coming from,” Fabio commented online.

"Sorry for not wanting idiots ruining my pride and joy."

Surprisingly, some people did side with him saying they hate people that get out and don’t care if they bang their doors on someone else’s car.

Most people though as you would expect were not impressed, suggesting he may need to get ‘better insurance’.

Some even took it further: “And to think the person driving that car was the fastest swimmer! What a poor gene pool.”

We didn’t think he was going to find many friends, especially given this wasn’t the first time his car was spotted hogging the spaces.
