      I'll only do that if I'm in the pickup, which is large beyond cartoonish proportions and I feel like I need to give as much room as possible to drivers in the lane.

      If I'm in one of the cars, the whole car goes in the spot -- no hanging over. I hate when I'm trying to walk down the sidewalk and I have to walk around the front end of every single estrogen egg since they just kept driving until the front tires slammed into the barrier. That, and if the spot hangs over grass or bark, you won't like what the kid getting paid $8/hr to landscape does to it when he can't weed-whack all the way up to the curb.

      I think I have the thread winner here!


      this guy was boxed in literally bumpers touching on both sides. the first two were shot via iphone5/panorama so it may be a bit distorted but you get the general idea

      these cars were literally touching the highlander's bumpers, on both ends, i don't know how much pushing he's going to have to do but it will be quite substantial.

      Bay Ridge, across the street from Salty Dog, what do you expect? If you took those at night, I would say that is normal. That has happened to my car several times in that neighborhood.

      why the insults? no not at all.

      people that do not want there car dinged it is better for them to park far out in the parking lot then parking like a weirdo and taking up three stalls.

      and parking like this is very ridiculous

      like i have posted on page one or two of this thread......

      There is NO excuse for one to park like a moron. Taking up one stall on the other side of the carpark is just as effective.
