@majorp The problem here, if you had not already realised, is that the council stuck the notice on her windscreen with water soluble glue.  The owner could not have driven the car away without first returning with a bucket of hot water to remove it, and that is totally irresponsible behaviour on the part of the council.

I have to disagree with @DEEDOODLE . Those that place graffiti on a wall or do anything to other peoples property are clearly breaking the law--unless they have permission to do such a thing.

Owner's emotional reunion with puppies stolen from Devon farm - but one is still missing https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/owners-emotional-reunion-puppies-stolen-3295999

Criminal damage, if a wall is damaged by a slogan being painted on it then by the same ruling a car windscreen that has been impaired with a semi permanent glue so as to reduce its properties is also the same. As the sticker was glued in a place on the windscreen to impair the drivers view of the road with knowledge that it would be very difficult to remove. I would argue that, under law, it ...
