Parking attendant needs to retake driver’s test

Parking attendant needs to retake driver’s test

A Phnom Penh parking attendant was revealed to be especially ill-suited to his job after first backing into a tuk-tuk, then driving forward and knocking over no fewer than nine motos in front of the restaurant where he worked on Thursday.

A guest had given the man the keys to his car, probably believing the vehicle to be in competent hands.

This was not the case, however, as evidenced by the ensuing demolition derby, which also saw two bystanders slightly injured. Police were called to the scene and hauled the vapid valet – and the damaged car – down to the station to await a legal resolution.
