    Parking in Paris

    Boss Lepton's recent post about car parking in Malaysia kinda reminded me of something.

    Recall that just a little more than a month ago I was at Paris with my baby.

    One thing I noticed was how close their cars were parked to each other.

    And when I mean close.. I mean sooo damn close that it was just NOT possible to get out of that side parking lot.

    Pay attention to the car on the left.

    This is how close its back was parked to the car behind it
    and this is how close its front is parked to the car in front of it.

    How in the world do they wiggle their cars out?!?!

    In the mean time. while we were walking around Paris, my baby spotted her dream car.

    Ahh there it is...
    My baby's little dream car!

    • i've watched a hk tv show about this parking thingy - they don't pull up their handbrakes. So when you wanna get ur car out of there, you bump the car in front and at the back of you for a lil bit and clean up a bigger space, so that u get out of the parking slot.

    • Why do they need to park so close? Space really that limited in Paris??

    • Bumped into your blog and found it hilarious! Been forwarding links to my friends. Keep it up!

      How did they actually get out from the parking spots? Wait for the car at the front of the line to leave?

    • read from somewhere b4, forgot where it was
      they said that if u ever get an accident at the roundabout at the arc de triomphe,
      insurance companies won't compensate u

      french drivers are the owning

    • thanks akmal

      well if you think about it this way... if they really lift up their handbreaks and you bump the car behind u, all the other 10 cars behind u will go back too... who knows what will happen then

    • Wow, the cars really *are* parked way tooo close for comfort! I'm surprised they didn't actually hit. Or maybe they did... time to check for scratches/dents!

    • Gosh..how sweet between you and your baby, boss stewie.

      And I was just thinking about the same thing as jee, they just "push" their cars into the space like shaolin soccer.
