How to do things right.

From Bad Driving and Parking

This is not a normal post, but rather, an example of how to properly park if you must take up more than one space. As you can see, this is in the back of the parking lot, and is using a four space configuration, such that the vehicle is in the center of it. This minimizes the chance for someone to hit it, and it is out of the way of anyone who may need a closer spot. Most cars that are for sale are positioned this way. Semi Trucks tend to park at the back too, which is also good.

Congrats on making the one and only positive post that will most likely ever be on this blog!

It's that time again!

From Bad Driving and Parking

I might have let this offense go, if it had been somewhere further from the door. It must not be normal to park between the lines in Montana. Then again, since there are only like 10 people in Montana anyway, maybe parking spaces are larger or something. Still, it was very uncool of this person to box in the reddish van, as the van was there before I went in, but the truck was not. I can provide the original photo if that red van needs it for insurance reason (scratches can be costly to fix, I know!).

And now for something else.

From Bad Driving and Parking

Here we have an amazing example of parking. This person was in such a hurry to get into Big Lots in that town full of amazing parking jobs, that they parked not only outside of a spot, but in the driving lane, facing the wrong direction. As you can see on the bumper (you may need to enlarge the photo), this has not been their first run-in with a bad parking job. My guess is that the scratches are from one of those nifty parking barriers, designed to prevent just this type of driver from pulling in too far...

Wooster Winrar

From Bad Driving and Parking

So, I was up at a fine retailer in Wooster, just doing my thing, and noticed this fine parking specimen. What makes it better is how it is not just the red truck over the line, but the white vehicle is also into the space. This is what we call a cluster. If it had been in the back of the parking lot, I could have completely overlooked such an offense. Way to go.

Another amazing parking job.

From Bad Driving and Parking

Okay, so this one is a bit old, but still worth throwing up here (since I haven't put one up in a little while, anyway).

I do find it ironic that this vehicle, parked illegally over a driving area and a no-parking area next to a handicapped spot (for which they don't even have a handicapped permit), is called a 'Navigator.' Appears the only thing this person could ever hope to navigate is failure...

Student Driver?

So, I was out and about, and saw this fine example of how to properly park a car. I wonder, how is this person allowed to teach driving and parking skills if they can do neither?
