Most people don't care Allanman, use bumps to judge. What surprises me is how many people hate the idea of reversing into a bay!

I don't like that either sorry. But l was watching a guy reverse his car had the little beeper things in the bumper and and camera, there was quite a bit of room but he drove off in the end. So much for Menz drivers

To stir it up, I don't like any parking, means I'm stopping driving..

There is a lot of tech on cars these days to do the parking for you, numerous cars parallel park themselves, the 7 Series will park itself in a garage. Soon cars will just drive around by themselves and we will all stay at home.

Well you can order the food you want and it turns up on the doorstep. Maybe we get in the car and say John's house or whatever and off he goes. Just like married men do for their wives today:-)

As long as we don't have to do a special license test to drive 'manual' cars while everyone else swans around in automated ones I'm happy :p

Frauen Parkplatz & Behindert Parkplatz These 2 signs are in were l park they are much wider than normal. The handicapped l can understand, but Frauen why should women need a bigger space to park in than men?
What dissed me off today was as l was driving out a bloke with a 4x4 thing was trying to park in the woman one he thought it was tooooo tight. 'Kin plonker. Could have parked a tank in there.

There are people out there who drive for the sake of it. these people most likely drive cheap bangers. whenever i go to a car park (mainly to go food shopping) i like to go on the second floor because the first floor tends to get busy plus you get more people walking between cars though this depends on how close you park to the store. another thing i try to do is park on the last bay (where you dont get two cars parked between you) and you can park as close to the edge so you can leave a lot of space for someone parking next to you. the only problem with this is that you do get people who put their shopping in the car and just leave their trolley in the middle of the road and it could wonder off and hit your car. i have been careful with my car, never damaged the bodywork on it, the only damage i would say i've done is the wheels although this was not caused by parking but by other people

My new car is coming up to two years old. So far I have some minor scrapes on the passenger side wing mirror, a minor scratch inside the drivers side door, a tiny dent in the right hand side tridion cell, a minor scrape on the passengers side around the wheel arches and what looks like tar spots on the left hand side which I’ve been unable to remove.

All of which I’d describe as minor, I’ve caused three of them and the minor dent and tar spots weren’t my fault.

Well Neil they are mounting up. Pretty soon you're Smart will be a write off.
I only have one scrape near side front bumper, my fault hit a wall while parking (idiot).
