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 one’s 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.
