We know that it can be a bit of a squeeze in these kinds of car parks but there is no need to take over three spaces with two cars!

Clearly in a rush for an ice cream and a ride on the helter-skelter, this driver forgot that you’re not supposed to park on the path.

It’s is always great when you can’t see anything because a car is parked on the corner. Not.

Tesco needs to get a bigger car park! This poor driver had to park in the middle of a tarmac area as they couldn’t find a space.

We think their reverse bay parking needs a little work.
