This is the moment a ‘horrible’ warden slaps a crashed car with a parking ticket while the driver waits for a tow truck.

The traffic warden is seen in the video writing out a ticket for the car, which is parked on the side of the road in Bolton.

The cameraman, who claims to be the other driver in the accident, attempts to stop the warden from issuing the ticket, pointing out that the car can’t be moved.

However, the warden is unfazed and slaps the ticket on the windscreen, as the man filming blasts him for being ‘an ‘absolute c***’ and ‘horrible, horrible being.’

The clip begins with the cameraman telling the warden: ‘Just so you know this car has been involved in an accident, as you can see.

‘This gentlemen still thinks it’s acceptable to stick a ticket on it. What a nice guy you are.

‘This poor kid whose hit me… and you are going to stick a ticket on him. What a guy you are.

What is this boss doing now? ‘

The man then shows the car’s front wheel, saying: ‘I don’t know if you can see that there but that’s the kid’s driveshaft there – bang, snapped, he can’t move it.

‘Still you think it’s acceptable to stick a ticket on this car you horrible, horrible being.

‘Absolutely disgusting.’

However, the warden still places a ticket on the car’s windscreen before telling the man to ‘have a nice day’ and walks off.

Appealing parking tickets for a car involved in accident

In some instances parking tickets can be appealed.

If a car was involved in an accident, or has broken down, the driver can claim there were mitigating circumstances.

If a motorist claims that their vehicle had broken down, they must be able to provide evidence of a breakdown.

This includes proof of vehicle recovery or a bill of sale for repair or parts.

The clip was posted on Facebook by Carla Walker, who wrote: ‘My son was involved in a crash this morning whilst waiting on tow truck this happened…. share away pls’.

Since its posting on Tuesday, the clip has been viewed more than one million times and shared by more than 46,000 people.

Many were outraged over the ticket, according to the Sun[2].

Cyrus Church said: ‘Definition of a JOBSWORTH -an official who upholds petty rules even at the expense of humanity or common sense’.

Dave Waters said: ‘Complete c**kwomble’.

But some thought the warden was just doing his job.

Matthew Scaffold Boyle said: ‘Number of things to point out, where is the owner? Why is the vehicle unattended? How did it come to rest where it is and on a double yellow line?

‘Why wasn’t it rolled 10m further down that side street where there are no restrictions?

And most importantly of all, why did some d**kless thunderc*** think it was acceptable to attack someone for doing their job?

‘I do wonder what stance the cameraman would take if a vehicle parked illegally was restricting emergency access to one of his friends or relatives?’

Mike Howard added: ‘Fair play to the warden doing his job camera guy needs to find something better to do’.
