But they got what they deserved - the driver was reported for obstructing the pedestrian crossing/footpath.

"We came across some questionable parking earlier this evening on Warwick Road," said Kenilworth and Warwick Rural Police.

"The vehicle was unattended upon arrival with the hazards flashing.

"Shortly afterwards the driver returned stating their reason for parking on the footpath at a pedestrian crossing was due them looking for a restaurant and thinking it was OK to leave their vehicle as pictured.

"We routinely encounter poor 'parking' but thankfully parking of such calibre as this isn't an everyday occurrence."
