FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Traffic Warden writes book
Somewhere in the UK— Bill Sticker the Local Authority Traffic Warden who writes the blog ‘Walking the Streets’ has published his first book.
Walking the Streets – the book not the blog is a number of things; part collection of anecdotes from life on the Streets and car parks of an English provincial town; part humorous biography, and part guide to challenging that pesky parking ticket with examples of how to write parking ticket challenge letters.
What the media have said about the original weblog;
Jane Perrone; The Guardian “… a one-man manifesto for the rehabilitation of the traffic warden in the public consciousness.”
Tim Worstall; The Independent “Bill Sticker gives us his mordant view of life from the kerbside. Idiot drivers, irate myopics……. Like most of those who blog about their jobs he is not overly impressed with the current style of British management.”
The Click; Times Online “This Parking Enforcement Officer’s story of life on the job is grim, funny and gripping.”
Hiding from his employers behind his pseudonym, Bill Sticker routinely takes mocking pot shots at the greedy, blinkered and often downright angry on his day to day weblog at http://parkingattendant.blogspot.com. Alternatively Walking the Streets – the book not the blog is full of rewritten and never before published (On or off line) material available for purchase at www.lulu.com or http://www.lulu.com/content/919364.
