A sore thumb

Take a minute and examine the above photograph. I believe most readers would make the comment that the bonnet of the green Toyota Camry was sticking out of the parking lot too much.

I was driving up a multi-storey carpark ramp when this particular Camry caught my attention. I was a bit puzzled on why it was parked in such a manner. As I recalled, a BMW 5 series can fit nicely within the confinement of the parking lot. I take a look at the rear of the parking lot and found that it was clear. The car will be able to reverse for a good say 50cm.

Due to the parking position of the Camry, the driver of the Mazda 2 on the right would have to accommodate and make a wider turn. Luckily, being a small hatchback, the Mazda would probably be able to move out of the parking lot without having to reverse and make a second attempt. In addition, the parking lot of the Camry was quite close to the downward ramp. A car coming down from the higher floors would need to be extra careful.

It is a good habit to ensure that ones vehicle is parked properly to avoid creating inconvenience to the others. Sometimes, we may forget as we are in a rush. I am guilty of it at times. However, do note that poor parking is actually putting your beloved ride at a higher risk of getting damaged.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Sad to see more and more inconsiderate drivers on the road. Even with the privilege of having the reverse sensor , I would normally get out of my car to ensure that I do not caused any inconvenience to the cars park next to me..
