We went to see a movie at the Avalon Mall last night, and parked at the lot off Thorburn Road - the one with the pedestrian overpass across O'Leary. Here's what we saw when we approached the lot:
And they didn't just park illegally ... they did so with style. This shot show how perpendicular parking leaves not a whole lot of room for everyone else to get by:
You can see from both shots that there were plenty of other vacant spaces on the lot, at least when we got there around 6. Perhaps it was possible that the driver of this car had come for the massively popular retro car show over at Hickman's on Kenmount Road, earlier in the day (the crowds were so heavy that a chunk of Kenmount had to be closed), and wound up parking here. Still, this takes the cake for not thinking about others.
Alternatively, perhaps the person parked the car in the space behind it ... and left it in neutral, and it just slid there.
In any event, I'm inclined to take more shots like this whenever I see bad parking, along the lines of this one last month.
