    Can't wait to move. This car park is the reason. I want a garage !

    I've got my fingers crossed they don't open the doors into my refurbed wheels !

    It has been worse than this and her husband reversed into my previous car (reason I sold it) :wallbash:

    Rant over :D

    im not sure i understand your point exactly. it looks like your neighbours have been very considerate and given you lots of space.

    Almost like they think your parking is so poor that they are giving you a wide berth.

    That looks like a mother parking her car quite far over to get a kid out of a booster seat on the other side of the car. Admittedly is very far over but....

    haha - sorry that pic is a 'good' bad example.

    Usually it is the other way round - out cars are the KA and the Mercedes. If I'm at work in the KA, the Clio will park in the end spot impossibly close to my car.

    If I park my car in the corner spot, the cats and fox use it as a short cut !

    Cabe, I understand your point - but to get out, she opens the door into the silver car then struggles out.

    Terrible parking. That black car has got two wheels fully outside the parking bay.

    And the clio next to it isn't much better....

    Mine is centre in the bay :)

    I'll post a bad pic when it happens (probably tonight) !

    Point is, does anyone else have to suffer with communal parking ?

    Unfortunately not. They are the smile and nod kind of Russian.

    I should count myself lucky I have parking I suppose.

    I wish.
    I did once upon a time (flat). Sometimes had to park wherever just to get a space (1.2 spaces per flat which was great for those with two or more cars)...

    Then moved to a house with space for 6 cars in the driveway... woohoo!

    Now I have a double garage and single parking space.

    Communal parking is the work of the devil.

    Certainly is. However he managed to hit the front of our Vito while manoeuvring into that position.
