March’s parking masterclass

It’s been a while, and I have tried so hard to refrain from snapping pictures of Israel’s world class parking practitioners, but this one simply demanded that I record it.

Here’s the background.

I am in Ra’anana, having parked my car in a car park. The car park has all that you would expect from a no frills car park: parking spaces with white line markers, and a ticket machine. The car park is not busy. There is plenty of space.

While I am on the phone, a driver brings their car into the car park and abandons it. The driver gets out, and walks away.

This is how it was:


It maybe doesn’t look so bad from the back, but this next view gives you a better appreciation of the quality of this parking.


Truly in a class of its own.

In summary: let’s take up more than one parking space, and let’s not bother about partly blocking the flow of cars around the car park. If you look closely at the background of the second photo, you can see that our practitioner of the black art was inspired by an earlier demonstration of the art.

No excuse, but great inspiration!
