It wasnt a passing car that clipped it as it was the wing mirror nearest the kerbside rather than the roadside! Just bloody vandalism!!!

No im not being targeted as a couple of other cars have also been done. As to the question of whether the car was parked partly on the pavement or not, no it wasnt! Dont think that would justify damaging someones property anyway would it?! Ffs...

No, but Friday night = Drunk people

Drunk people + darkness + cars on the pavement can = broken wing mirrors. My 3 year old even knocked one off with her head once

IT WAS NOT PARKED ON THE PAVEMENT! IT WAS PARKED LEGALLY ON THE ROAD LIKE MOST NORMAL PEOPLE PARK! Yeah it could have been drunk fools crashing into parked cars but who knows?

2 weeks ago we had 50 cars damaged on our road in S6 my mirror is broken on the casing but still useable, some got more damage, the police held a gang of teenagers by the shops on Halifax road but I've not heard of one being charged with anything.

I live on Cobden View road in crookes. In the last year, I have had my wingmirrors kicked off I think, 4 or 5 times now. Before you think i'm terribly unpopular, I have checked and found that pretty much every car on the street - and i'm talking 30 plus here, has been done - yep, it's pretty much drunken ********s walking home. Mine are fixed , so they don't just flip inwards, they snap off - and have had to replace each time, grrr.

I have called the police numerous times, who have been very sympathetivc, even come out, but basically can do bugger all about it.....

It;s not nice.....

Judging by the way some women park it doesnt surprise me.Ive seen some parked so far away from the kerb you need a bus to the pavement but hey its always someone elses fault init?

Haha I was in Meadowhall and was letting a car pass as I went to park up. For some unknown reason the driver came past really slow, and close to my car knocked my wing mirror and didn't even stop to say sorry she just kept driving.

A bin lorry knocked mine off once, I rang the transport department and they gave me a new wing mirror and put it on for me
That was a pleasant surprise!

Alot of motorists around our area park on the kirb and the pedestrians who are pushing prams have to use the road because they can't get through, so to those drivers who park on the kirb and have no respect for pedestrians they deserve all they get
