An Australian mother of three who owns a $ 120,000 Hummer is infuriating other motorists by using two spaces when she parks her car, but is she wrong?
Gillian Bromley, from the suburb of Sorrento, Perth, bought the six-liter, five-ton vehicle three years ago and describes it as her "fourth child", but not everyone is so excited about her choice of car.
"I've had many people who feel the need to unload their frustrations on my vehicle," Bromley said. dawn.
Many have left notes on the Hummer, abusing Bromley for occupying the two spaces he needs to place his car in a parking lot.
"You know you do not need 2 parks," said one note.
"Why not use 3 underrated parking bays?", Wrote another.
A Twitter user questioned the need for such a large car when he lived in the suburbs.
"It's hard enough trying to get away from the parking spaces next to a four-wheel drive, which is dangerous and annoying," they wrote after the Sunrise report.

Bromley described his vehicle as his "fourth child", but not everyone is so convinced
Bromley told reporters that putting her car in a standard parking lot is inconvenient for her and those who park nearby because it means that neither party can enter or leave their cars.
In addition, local council law states that a person with a vehicle that is too wide or too long to fit in a single bay can park using two points.
Many have devoted themselves to writing notes and leaving them in Bromley's car, calling her "imbecile".
But Bromley's last interaction with a parking inspector at the Karrinyup Shopping Center left a bad taste in his mouth when he informed him that he would receive a violation notice if he did not park in a single bay.
When Bromley said it was impossible to accommodate his car in a single space and asked what he was supposed to do, the inspector allegedly told him to "buy a smaller car."
& # 39; It's a kind of intimidation, and [in] the world today, you are not allowed to do that, "Bromley said.
Tim Richards of the Karrinyup Mall said the center's management was working with Bromley to address their concerns and offer adequate alternative parking options for larger vehicles since our bays have a standard size of 2.5m & # 39 ;, reported The Stirling Times.
"The safety and well-being of the people who visit and work in our center is our number one priority and this includes our parking lots," he added.
