Police in Yorkshire recently tweeted this photo. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it has now been deleted:
If we're going to be pedants, then yes, living in your car, especially if it has no insurance, is illegal. But come on, did West Yorkshire Police really have to be such twats about it? The only thing you can draw from a tweet like this, is that whoever constructed it literally took pleasure in the misfortune of this couple. And that's really shitty.
At least tell them what services are available to them, given their situation. At the very, very least, don't take a photo of what is very likely one couple's lowest point.
