Would you park your vehicle on the freshly painted surface?

it is organized conspiracy against parking payment. photo was taken in Osijek and most of those cars are from people who are living in that street.

What's wrong with parallel parking? It's often the only possibility in narrow streets....

My car is often too big (Ford Crown Victoria) for parallel parking. At least with 'regular' parking I can let the back stick out. My motto is if I want my ass hanging outta the back of my parking spot, that's my problem

Dutch parking spots are rather short though, like only 4 - 4.5 meters, sometimes 5 meters. But why do you need a driving bathtub anyway

Here it seems parking markings are just to point where is "general area" for parking, and it is up to people to use it best as they can




Maybe they were painting it that day

(dont know the story, but in my town, tenants of one building protested for not being able to choose parking so they also decided to park around, although they were just lazy IMO)

Bathtub, I like that

It's comfortable. Like an ocean liner.

I'm actually better at parallel parking than at regular nose-in parking.

The street pictured though, seems wide enough for angle parking.

I think that even considering km per hour would make an exciting trip to nearby lawn.
