It’s a pretty simple concept. There are lines marked on the ground that help guide one driver into one said location in which to leave our vehicle. As I was so kindly reminded by the guy taking two spots at the store today, it seems many people didn’t get the friendly “How to Park” guide at the local DMV. So I am going to give you a little Cliff Note version of the rules.
Rule #3: No back in parking. Are going inside to drink a quart of Hennessey? Is there something that you are going to do inside that will take away from your ability to back out of a parking spot? I have some news, you are not going to save any time backing in. It is merely a redistribution of time. And certainly don’t use my bumper as “Yup, I’m back all the way” guide.
Rule #4: No bumper kissing. If some crazy reason you touch the car in front of you, move the car back, check to see if you did any damage and then go inside. If you leave the car like this. Your better pray the car in front of you is worth more than yours
Rule #5. If there’s snow piled in the spot, it is no longer a spot. Is it me or is it always the same 1995 truck or sport utility that “climbs” the snow to get that last spot? I can’t remember the last time I saw a Prius or a Camry parked at a 45 on the snow hill.
Rule #6: Owning an expensive car doesn’t give you special parking rights. If you’re going to take the Ferrari to go pick up a half case of Diet Coke then give the car some breathing room. The last thing you want to do is give people a reason to say the old “When I’m done with him he’ll be able to legally park there”
