      ^ Sadly, we require licenses to drive a car but none to park one.

      You have to be able to guess which customers are there for which franchise like 99% of the time!

      ^ I hate parking lots that are laid out like that. Granted, Sunfire driver was stupid not to notice that there was already a car in the spot, but the Escape was pulled up way too far as well. In situations like that, I usually hang toward the rear of the spot just to eliminate confusion.

      Same here in MI (now.) Didn't used to be that way, though....

      Of course, just because someone manages to pass that part of the test (all of the parking maneuvers - one doesn't even get to the road test unless those are passed), doesn't mean that one will retain said skills....

      If your car feels like it's on rails, then you're going too slow.

      I see it everywhere here in CA.

      One of my friends from NY use to do it all the time. Park out in the middle of nowhere, diagonally.

      For a 1992 Chevy Silverado with 1997 front end. Nothing special.
