Are Parking Lot spaces Too Small for your SUV or Truck?
I can tell you from my own parking experience or nightmares that many larger vehicles now dominate the roadscape lately in the city. When parking you can easily be stuck in a space where you can not easily open your car door wide enough to get in or out and forcing you to wait until the other vehicle moves out of their spot. Moreover, there are a number of doors that when opened often ping and dent the vehicle parked right beside them. There are cars or station wagons that have 2 doors only and their doors are wider and open up farther and often ping and dent the side of the car parked right next to them. Should parking lots be made wider to make room for these types of vehicles and allow more room for people to easily get in and out of their vehicles?
Yes I think parking lot space is too narrow for most Sports Utilities Vehicles and Vans and Trucks.
Parking spaces in outdoor and multilevel parkig garages are way too narrow for safety and convenience.
Even if people park properly there is always too liitle space to get in and out with my bags of groceries.
The old style parking lot is old school, for when cars were more common and Trucks, SUVs and VAns were not so much driven.
I drive a compact car so I have plenty of space to park. But I would hate to be parking a pick up or a van.
