      I guess we need a 'who cares how badly they parked because there are lots of spots' thread

      Sidewalks are not constructed to take the weight of vehicles and will eventually crack the concrete. Sidewalks are typically 4-inches of concrete, driveways are 6-inches thick by code here in Portland. Plus, in this city, sidewalk maintenance is the responsibility of the abutting property owner.

      Not sure if he had a handicap tag or not in his window. He had something hanging from some kind of chain or something inside his car. Looked more like a hotel Do Not Disturb sign. Anyway, even if he could legally park there his parking skills weren't particularly good.

      Maybe they consider bad parking a disability now, neither in that pic got it between the lines.

      They're not parked in a handicapped spot or fire lane, that's totally different: disrespectful, impeding a possible emergency & just wrong. What a stretch your argument has jumping to illogical conclusions...extremist reasoning?

      Edit: there are very good examples in this thread of idiotic parking & people that ARE just a-holes!

      So basically you come into the bad parking thread to complain about people who are actually posting bad parking jobs. Maybe this thread just isn't for you, huh?

      Two for one, eh? Neither the van or the BMW could put it between the lines. I spot a missing valve cap too!
