Wow! such good news I should be jumping for joy

Pffftttt just had an email from one of the police officers dealing with the car vandalism cases,at the top it states that they have good news for me........as I read on they have arranged for me to rent a garage with the council and a tenancy agreement is in the post,garage isnt even near my house either!

Geez i havent replied cos im so livid i have told them time and time again i am not paying rent on a garage,2 of the cars wont fit in a piddly sized shoe box of a council garage and if i garage one the others would be left to be targeted,it seems garaging the mg is a cure all to them,hide the car and the problem will go away attitude

sensible replies to their email considered please lol

I'm off to look at another place tomorrow too so am hoping it will be just perfect for us (trying not to get my hopes up again)

tell them u need ur car on the drive...do u have a little un...then u cant be expected to park up far away from house esp when its raining etc.

tell them u bought the ho having to use with the off street parking/ drive/ parking space, therefore u cannot justify further purchasing additional parking. running and hiding from te problem isnt a solution and the police should work harder to ensure u can live peacefully and in ease.

May not be what a lot think but I believe that it is excellent by the Police, a really thought out response rather than just words.

Realistically it will protect one of your cars and the alternative is what?

I think you should go half way to meeting their ideas really, if you dont it looks like your not overly bothered really, if my car was being bashed about i would want to do all i could to protect it from happening, even if it was slightly inconvenient, sadly the police have to follow guidelines and cannot go around accusing every tom, dock and harry without proof, no matter who they are

protect one? but i have 3,the alternative is they sort out whoever is doing it and i can then park without fear of having the cars trashed on a regular basis,I dont want to be paying out on garage rent,I shouldnt have to,the area needs more policing or cctv,the police have said that themselves
They did sit in the car park one evening,4 police cars and a dog unit now it doesnt take a brain surgeon to work out that nothing will be done whilst they are on display,i know their resources are limited but i find their "cures" naff

I have not seen your previous posts re vandalism to your cars but whats the alternative? Save up the £9.81 to pay out on car repairs?

Genuinely sorry to hear of the problems you have.
#11
get rid of 2? sasve money in the process?
#12
But what can they do?

Increase patrols - won't they just do it when the police aren't around 99.9% of the time?
CCTV - expensive and will take a long time to be agreed, annoys a lot of people in residential areas.

There is no magic solution to crime and it's not the fault of the police nor the government. I think they have offered you a very practical solution.

even if i do rent the garage it still leaves my other 2 cars out in the parking area,whoever it is doing the damage has damaged all 3 so i dont see why putting one in hiding would make much difference but see where youre coming from sass,it just seems they want the mg gone

i just think if you try what they suggest, you have at least shown you are willing to help, it isnt just a police problem. If you try what they suggest and it doesnt work then they will have to try other things, sadly elimination is a slow process and as i said the police have to follow guidelines whether we like them or not, good luck

I agree, I think that's a pretty decent offer from the police - they're not going to fit an extremely expensive CCTV system for some car vandalism. When my car was being trashed quite regularly the police couldn't really do much which was understandable, if they had offered a garage for a fee per week even if not nearby I would have jumped on it as bodywork repairs are not cheap.

did you ever get to the bottom of the vandalism?

Nope, it stopped after I moved to a quieter city. I was living in a central part of Edinburgh which simply isn't good for cars and garages are far too expensive.

Someone raised an interesting point. WHY do you have 3 cars?
#26
why are loads of people having a go at the OP? a garage too far away is obviously not practical for her and so what if she has 3 cars. maybe she needs all 3? or maybe theyre other members of her familys? or maybe work vehicles? she came on here asking for advice and i think a couple of people could have really done without saying anything as what they say was just unneccessary.
mardy i hope this house is ok for you tomorrow and good luck. if not i hope the vandals soon get bored and move on to other things
#27
I agree, that putting them away in a garage is impracticable.

The car comment, was not made to have a go, it was genuine question of why she had three cars. I am aware that one may be hers and one her husbands and one for someone else, so that's why i asked, before jumping to any conclusions

before you jump to conclusions i may not have been talking about you as you stated that someone else earlier mentioned her having 3 cars. im not having a go at one person in particular but to me the OP seems very stressed about the situation and i dont blame her. i just think other people saying she should accept the garage and also mentioning her having 3 cars without knowing her situation is unnecessary

I have 3 cars...............one is a work horse that hubby often uses for work (the jeep) the probe i use when i have to ferry the kids or passengers about,the mg is just my lil fun car that hubby bought me after i underwent the chemo as a "boost" for me
