PADOVA. On Sunday morning he found two tires out of four on the ground. Cut clean. A clear vandalism, made even more serious by the fact that it is now the fifth time – in less than three years – that a similar episode has occurred. The lawyer Davide Ferraretto of the Padua bar can only denounce and hope that this is the last time.
The lawyer recounts what has been happening for some time now in via Giulio Zanon, in the locality of Torre: «In three years someone has cut the tires on my car five times. The two wheels facing the road are punctured. And it doesn’t just happen to me, unfortunately ».
In most cases, in fact, the same fate has befallen the tires of the cars – three or four at a time – that park on the same stretch of road. “Precisely at street number 27, where there is no parking ban, much less insist on some driveway”.
Saturday night, in fact, the last episode: in addition to the Infiniti Q30 of the lawyer Ferraretto, another has remedied the flat tires. “When I find my tires cut, I usually avoid parking there again. But sometimes it becomes necessary or I forget, and vandalism punctually arrives ».
A sign, therefore, that those attacks are not random, but targeted. And the fact that they affect several car owners without distinction also makes it certain that it is not retaliation against the lawyer.
“Maybe someone bothers that you park there” Ferraretto underlines “Yet I repeat, parking in that space is free”.
On all occasions Ferraretto filed a complaint with the carabinieri, which will also be done in the next few days for this new episode. It is not known how many cars have been damaged up to now, but the balance seems to be important.
The real problem, beyond the incivility of those who carry out these attacks, is that there are no video surveillance cameras along the way, which is why it is really difficult to trace the perpetrators of the vandalisms.
