Not really extreme parking but local train station bays are ****** narrow! Only way round it is to park right at the end, which usually works as no one wants to walk that far
They say they're normal size but the bay is literally the width of my car!

Pictures make it seem like there's more room when in actuality the bay is ever so slightly wider than my car, if someone parks next to you I wouldn't be able to get in my car!

Think I read somewhere that the width of parking spaces were based on an old old old 5 series BMW many moon back and haven't changed since! Today's 3 series BMW is wider than the 5 series the spaces were made for!

Makes a lot of "sense", it's quite an old train station. Beggars belief how some are happy to squeeze their car between two cars with a bay this size, and you see them trying to squeeze out the door...all the while their car door is resting/banging against the one next to it . Horrible.

Yep, some people are basically lazy and not prepared to walk the length of themselves if they can help it.
Looking at the red car(Peugeot possibly)....can it get any closer to the kerb? :D

Earlier in the week I drove the wife to the local Tesco Express for some essentials, I parked away from the main entrance! The car park had loads of spaces, yet this numpty parked right next to me :blink: I put my window down and elbow out so that he could see me! he had to squeeze out of his car to not hit mine with his door, he then had to squeeze past my mirror and in doing so his ar5e hit my mirror :wtf: He turned and looked at me, the look I gave him said enough :D I would have said something but he was holding his keys (as if you were unlocking a door) so I thought he could key my bonnet if I say anything obscene :p

I'm just glad I was in the car, I bet if I wasn't he would have just ploughed his door right into the side of my car without a care in the world.
What annoys me the most is that he had plenty of options! spaces to either side of me as well!!!

Judging by the state of his car I think you're right! Plenty of scratches from the looks of things reckon he'd have been fine dinging your door if you weren't there.

I really have a hatred for people who park next to me when there’s loads of other spaces elsewhere and you’ve taken special effort to park out of the way, like why do they do it! :wtf:

I don't think this guy had a brain to give him the ability to think! Why would you park that close to someone and make it so hard for yourself to get out of the car, when there are plenty of spaces with nothing either side!?!?! It just doesn't make any sense at all :blink:

It’s got to be intentional, frankly unless they are completely stupid they know you have parked there in the hope no one parks next to you, so they get joy in their sad lives by parking next to you on purpose.

At least in my experience I find this to be the case 9 times out of 10.

So, as you may or may not know, I been polishing the be Jesus out of my car this week.
I needed to go to Tesco.
Parked in a row of empty spaces, only to come back to this.
Livid was not in it, and I waited a full 50mins to give the owner a mouthful

I bet they couldn't have give a toss, or were completely oblivious to what they had done

Old woman, small and fat.
Totally blase about it.
You don't want to know what I said to her lol

Doesn't surprise me in the least, to most people a car is just something to get from A to B. They will never understand how to some people it is so much more.

Of course some people are just *********, with no respect for other people's property.

Looks like a shopping trolley was on the prowl..It had your car in it's sights lol

Nooooo - don’t scare me. I do the mental topographical map for where abandoned trolleys would end up. I learned that lesson when my first ever car was hit by a runaway trolley on the front near side quarter - it wasn’t pretty..
