This week’s My Sunday Photo is a bit different to my normal photos. It’s a rant. A rant in picture form. About bad parking.
A busy car park yes. All the more important to park well enabling the full use of spaces for everyone. If you’ve a massive car like a Range Rover I might give you a bit of leeway because we all know parking spaces aren’t always big enough for the larger cars we have today. But when you drive a tiny car, there’s really no excuse for not managing to park inside a space. I can manage it with a car much wider and longer, with and without the assisted parking. Yep, that’s mine, the blue massive beast of a car. Well inside the space and parked straight. Despite there being another car waiting for me while I parked.
This week I’ve been on a bit of a rant about car parking. This one on Saturday just topped it off.
The first one was people at school driving into spaces, despite the rules being to reverse in. For the safety of children because you’re not reversing out into the car park where children are walking. And for ease of seeing and being able to drive straight out quickly when others are looking for spaces. But there’s always a couple who seem to think the rule doesn’t apply to them.
Then a Gran who does school pick up every day ‘parked’ her (small) car not only well over a line, but half sticking out the front of the space. And that’s despite her arriving when there were hardly any cars.
Oh and then there’s the people who stalk you back to your car when they’re searching out a space. Is it just me who likes to take their time and sit getting ready for ages before driving off?
What bugs you about other drivers and bad parking?
