Mysterious Spanish flyer asks bad parkers to practise ‘colouring in this tortoise’ to learn to keep within the lines

DRIVERS in Spain are notorious for flouting the rules of organised parking.

But one do-gooder has been leaving anonymous flyers on badly-parked cars to ridicule wayward owners of their ‘childish’ behaviour.

The flyer shows a picture of a colour-in tortoise, with the words: ‘Many three-year-old children also struggle to keep within the lines’.

BACK TO SCHOOL: The flyer was anonymously placed on a poorly parked car

“But if you practise colouring in this tortoise, it just might help you park better.”

The flyer was spotted by Oliver Byrne, marketing manager at Caroutlet.es, on the Costa Blanca.

He told the Olive Press: “A friend sent it to me because he had parked badly, it wasn’t me I promise.”
