Car park extortion

Car park extortion.. Argentina says “Fuck Yeah”

When you park in a popular place here in Argentina, such as near the beach, shops, clubs and resturants you need to pay for protection for your car.

There is always a seedy looking dude near the street corner which you must pay so that your car remains safe. Not paying this fee could quite possibly lead to your car being inadvertently smashed to pieces.

Luckily the fee is only about 10 pesos depending on your bargaining skills.

Now where are those Gold coast style meter maids?

Should have paid the fee

    The only difference is that a parking fee here doesn’t mean your car is safe. ( broken into / towed away / parking fine )

    I’ll take the extortion fee thanks. At least I’ll have someone to blame if something happens

    Erm…I’m not convinced by the Photo Richard!!! that is a mid engined lamborghini which has been smashesd to piceces. Firtstly do Buness Airians have enough coin to afford one of these? Secondly the flats in the backgound look to clean and finally the guy smashing the car is of asian decent…oh and wait so is every other person in the photo.
