Sometimes, I “don’t know what to say”…
How much effort and time it is going to take for this driver to just reverse this small car and park it back properly? Hours? Minutes? Seconds?
No doubt there are other empty parking spots – so occupying 2 parking spots is not really a big issue – it does not really “bother” anyone else but that is not the point. The shot that I took last week or so is just an example.
There are others selfish acts that you will see on daily basis, on and off the road – double, triple parking creating traffic jams and obstructing other vehicles, abusing the emergency lane to a point that you could kill others, jumping queue the moment you see a traffic jam and in doing that, creating even more traffic jam, throwing rubbish wherever and whenever you like, etc.
Why can’t they take a moment out to think about others and do a quick run of some “what-if” scenarios? What if there is a lack of parking space later? What if an ambulance had to use the emergency lane? What if someone had an emergency but your car is blocking their car? What if…?
