Generally speaking, when you illegally park your car, you're likely to get ticketed and towed, but there is probably at least one motorist in Scotland who wishes that was the case. After workers had blocked off a portion of the parking lot for the Edinburgh Waverley railway station, the driver of this Mercedes-Benz S-Class reportedly moved some of the barriers to park in one of the empty spots.

Rather than having the vehicle towed, the work crew simply tore up the asphalt around the leaving just the one parking spot intact, and as you can see in the image above (posted to the Twitter account of Harold Norstad), the crew even built a small asphalt ramp so the car could get off its blacktop pedestal. Since this happened last week, there's no word as to whether the car was eventually moved or towed for the resurfacing work to continue.

Let this be a warning...

      More of an inconvenience to the workers as they have to work around the car. At some point, they'll have to remove it anyway.

      I like to think the construction workers are showing subtle respect for the car, not necessarily for the owner.

      Why build a ramp? What a waste of time and asphalt

      they should have crushed it with the bulldozer and threw it in the dumptruck, that would have taught the owner a real lesson

      Imagine the amount of shovel-leaning that would have ensued if this happend in the USA. Good for them for doing the work they could do.

      These peeps are far too nice. They should have dug a hole and buried it. People like this deserve the consequences.

      Jesus Christ the people yammering on about this being an S Class and the owner must be loaded blah blah blah. This S is like 12 years old, it is probably worth $10,000 at best.

      We would do things like that on the job site also. We knew damaging the property was wrong but buying us donuts before we released it was a good trade off.

      They should have piled all the ripped out asphalt on top of this car.
