Caught on Thursday, 17th August, 2006 at 2000 hours at Block 105 Edgefield Plains, Deck 2B.

Driver of the white Ford Mondeo parked off the center of its lot and onto the white lines on the left. Driver probably parked like that because he or she wanted to put some extra gap between the Mondeo and the wall on the right. Therein lies the design flaws of these HDB multi-storey carparks. We always have difficulties getting out of the car if we park too close to the walls. So we have no choice but to widen the gap between the car and the wall to facilitate ease of exiting and entering the car.

The lorry on the left seemed to have no choice as well, but to park off the center of its lot to perhaps prevent denting the driver's side of the Mondeo, with the lorry's door on its passenger side.

Come to think of it, the lorry driver appeared to be the considerate one. Lorry and van drivers are typically stereotyped as those who can't be bothered to park properly since their vehicles are primarily meant for delivering goods and not for looking good. A van driver whose van gets dented on the side by an opening door, would not feel as much pain as a car driver. Afterall, the van could well belong to driver's company and not the driver himself.

lorry should just park just nearer to it, so the driver have to crawl in from the other side.

To Rational Neurotic: Yeah. Lorry driver should have done just that. But he didn't.
