      Some inspiration:


      I think he did a good job fitting this BIG truck in the normal sized spot...
      When I was little, my father was famous, He was the greatest samurai in the empire, And he was the Shogun's decapitator, He cut off the heads of a hundred and thirty-one lords, It was a bad time for the empire, The Shogun just stayed inside his castle and he never came out, People said his brain was infected by devils, My father would come home he would forget about the killings, He wasn't scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him

      Today at my office. I get a great view of it all. This lady actually pulled in, backed out a bit, and pulled back in.

      That is illegal in some States. They never enforce it though.

      Just an observation... carry on.

      The story:

      "Was sitting outside Starbucks in the Shopper's Plaza Sunday morning and this guy pulls up....I'd guess late 40's and clearly not handicapped. No hc sticker/sign in his windshield. I said "Buddy, you're actually parking in 2 handicapped spots?" He said "You're very observant" and ran into Starbucks. I started to yell at him when he came out, but he just ignored me and drove off."

      Can anything really be done since it's on private property?

      this was from the process of parking their car. eventually, family members got out and helped direct her into the spot.



      this is the result of her parking ability and their spotting/guiding:



      and yes, that sticker says "STUDENT DRIVER," but that car has had that sticker since i've lived down here (~2 years).

      the parking is so bad at my apartment complex, i could provide daily updates of the crap i see.

      Handicap parking spaces are mandated by law based on certain criteria, and police-enforceable. They're not "maternity" or "parents with small children" spots.

      Now, as for whether anything will be done after the fact or if you could try to block them from leaving until police come, the likelihood doesn't seem to be there. Shame campaign to the Star or Sun? Absolutely.

      Guy at work not only taking up two spaces in his new (to him) lease-spec 328i on the crowded floor of the garage. If that isn't bad enough, he was about 5 feet from the wall so the ass end of the car was sticking out.

      He should become friends with the guy in the scratched up, dirty passat who does the same thigng

      To be fair, this looks like it might be residential parking with a parking garage where they normally have assigned parking spaces. Could be something where they have two spaces but one car or that a car is in the shop. I do that with my two spaces when one of my cars is out (normally in the shop).

      Or they're just an assho1e.

      You need to think about what kind of charge the police could site you with. Is blocking a handicap spot the same as parking in it? Could you be charged with false imprisonment or some siht like that?

      If all I was facing was a parking ticket, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

      This is from a few years ago in a restaurant parking lot, not sure why he parked like that.


      This one is from earlier this month, BMW driver parked like a prick so I pulled in close to drivers door so they had to get in from passenger side. The parking lot is quite large and this was the only open space.

      I wonder how long those shopping carts are there though. There's a big chance that the guy who has to bring back the carts to the store will take them back
