It's becoming a disgrace the way they are making these car parks. I look at morrisons car park. It is dangerous. Cars causing blockades everywhere. Taxi drivers mainly by the entrance. I hope for a speedy recovery to the lady that was run over

Taxis aren't supposed to stop at the entrance to morrisons any more but they do and cause chaos. I'm a taxi driver and I always stop further along where we are allowed to. The problem though is that the pick up bay is usually occupied by cars from Telecars who are waiting for a job, not necessarily from morrisons, and sometimes we have to double park in order to pick up customers. Morrisons really do need to sort things out. Another problem, and all drivers will have come across this, is pedestrians that walk out in front of cars without bothering to turn their heads to look for cars. They forget that they are walking across a car park, which is where moving cars can be found.

I was hit by a car 2 years ago in the disabled area of this car park. I had just parked and was walking to the store when the idiot came tearing round and would have hit the parked car if I hadn't been there. Luckily there was a police officer who saw everything. After some checks it turned out he had no licence and his car was confiscated. However because it is private land he couldn't be prosecuted.

I'm surprised there aren't more accidents on supermarket car parks, I've lost count of the number of times I've had to leap out of the way of some wild-eyed woman hurtling round the corners practically on two wheels. Does the "baby on board" sticker in the back window really mean "get out of my way, I'm far more important than you are and I'm in a hurry".

Yes and it also means I will somehow park this rather large 4x4 in one of the spaces not really meant for it and stuff the damage to cars either side!

That's not true. Of course he could have been prosecuted. They chose not to, for whatever reason, but not because it was private land.

The young lady who was hit by the car should have been enjoying her own wedding reception tonight with all her friends and family. Instead she is in hospital having had her broken leg pinned and waiting for further surgery on the serious wound on her leg caused when the car dragged her across the car park ...... We will save the wedding celebrations for another time but I hope the reckless woman driver who hit her feels as bad as she should do

Im g he victim of this accident. Still in hospital and will be for some time before what i gather is going to be a very difficult and trying few months of recovery. I dont wish to comment on what happened as my flashbacks are pretty horrific but i would just like to thank the kind people who came and helped me compress the wound and try to stop the bleed at the scene. I really appreciate all your help. The staff from sainsburys and most importantly my husband....fortunate
ly our ceremony was the week before, but the reception which we had to cancel was on saturday with lots of family and friends who had travelled from across europe as well as the uk. The comments ive seen about taxis etc has been irrelavant to this. The last comment not sure who this person is pretty much sums up the event. Thanks once again to those mentioned and whoever called the ambulance....i believe the driver was too busy calling her insurance company from what ive heard.
