I have OCD and no matter what I need my bloody van parked straight laugh
Know the feeling. I see people drive into a car park at the same time as me and jump out (not perfectly straight, of course) while I'm still straightening up. I'm not talking spending 30 minutes parking but I'll often do a re-entry to straighten up - mind you, having an oil tanker sized turning circle doesn't help.
I had a chuckle the other day when I saw some old git park perfectly in a space first time & then shuffle the car about for several goes to get it over the white lines on both sides & the front of the space.
It wasn't me, then. I have yet to park it perfectly first time.
laugh

They were so old I just assumed it could only be MBH.

Problem is the Volvo turning circle is so big, you drive into a Tesco car park, find a free space, drive forwards with a view to reversing, reverse, tidy up, get out and find you've parked in Lithuania.

I am o.k with bad parking...and I do it often...as sick of bad door opening skills by other drivers / passengers....resulting in bent panels...most cars park have space sizes for 70's cars

Some Volvo drivers can actually manage to park.



All I can say is thank god for reversing sensors, sorted. biggrin But I know what you mean.

At first we thought this had broken down in the middle of the roadway at Lidl, but no, the owner duly returned with shopping and left.



For reference the silver car is at the end of the parking row on one side and the coloured bricks mark out the next row.

Id like to buy a Renault Twizzy for the school run when the weathers better, but its fking selfish wkers like the BMW driver seen earlier that just dump their cars in the electric charge points with no fking regard for the poor sod that might want to charge up the car. The problem is the charge points are right by the front doors of shops so easier to dump and pop in i suppose.

Seems I wasn't alone judging this as crappy parking in Rome, so did the Traffic Warden!!??
Interesting how that Smart car is parked. Always wondered if you could get away with parking it like that.
That Smart car (and many others like it) was protruding only about 4 inches out onto the main roads beyond the normally parked cars.
Isn't there some law about having to park in a way were your reflectors are visible?
Good call unless in a marked bay. Parking nose in probably wouldn't work either, depends on reflector design. It's a German car and they park properly in Germany, maybe the reflectors are designed to reflect to both rear and side.
Hey this was in Italy!!!! Not sure they are that bothered with the small print!

I don't know what is worse. The parking, the stupidly worded sticker, or what the sticker is implying. smile

I saw a guy I went to school with, who once punched me in the back of the head as I left a pub for speaking to a female friend of mine who he thought I was moving in on, he was driving an i8, on his own but it was plonked in a P and C spot in a busy supermarket car park.

Nice car, but still obviously not a very nice bloke.

Suggesting that the turning circle is so big that you cross countries while lining up the car.

Excuse the crappy phone picture. Parked up to do a delivery the other morning, when I climbed back in the cab I was greeted by this...



Yup, that's parked. Not enough room either side to get my way on out frown

Three in one shot...and all three couldn't be bothered to straighten their wheels either.



Despite having dedicated spaces for their cars, the Co-Wheels car club drivers just abandon them.
