Fabricator? I should cocoa.

From one of the comments:
I know its not the done thing to fall on the side of the council. However, we dont have the full story on the DM article (as usual). The road has had yellow lines for years. It was being resurfaced and lines repainted. Signage was up well in advance. He parked the car mid works after the resurfacing but before the line painting.

If you pronounce 'MRD' in French, it means 'shitty'*

It's part of a trend in journalism to spell out in the hook line all the pertinent information. The theory being that there's so much content out there that the average viewer or reader will skip over if there's any ambiguity or necessity to read deeper or think.
