CAR PARKING IN A CAR PARK SHOULD BE PART OF THE DRIVING TEST.
Not just in multi-story car parks, but in ALL car parks; people just do not seem to understand them!
I thought I’d seen it all when I saw kids abusing disabled spaces (see Asian Youth Flexing), and when I saw folk who couldn’t be bothered to find a parking bay abandon their four by four in a car park (see Urban Off-Road Adventures).
However, these pale into insignificance with what I saw at the weekend [Click on pics to enlarge]. Yes, things are getting worse!
For some unknown reason, three cars were found in a car park, parked neatly across the access roadway — completely avoiding the car parking bays! This meant that cars (coming both ways) had to drive AROUND these cars — by using proper car parking bays as a route.
This workaround route meant that between five and seven car parking space ON EACH SIDE had to be kept free and clear to avoid a blockage — thus three cars managed to effectively take up between 10 and 14 car parking bays! Brilliant!
