Somehow I have a feeling certain drivers would still manage to park on the line

Or they can squeeze in between the lines thinking it's 2 spots.

Did someone not do their math when they were painting spaces? That space is as wide as it is long.

All of the other spots in the parking lot are normal sized except for the ones on the left side of the curb. SUV parking I guess

Agreed. I was feeling a bit lazy and wanted to park close to the building but I opted to walk a bit further so I had the big spot

I'm not gangster enough to do that.

Notice how I spelled it with a "er" at the end instead of an "a". If I would have spelled it gangsta, I would be G enough to park sideways.

Yeah I would have the E55 without the awesome V8 up front

And thanks Brian! I love looking in my rearview mirror at a car behind full of people trying to figure out what the plate means.

Sorta what I was thinking. Most likely it was just someone who can't do math.

Can't say I've ever heard of a "limo only" parking spot.

I love your car, much as I love all 3G TLs. at your plate, it is awesome that someone actually allowed that in your state.

Ask and ye shall receive. The stripe on the passenger side of the car actually ends right under the front bumper but I pull almost all the way to the curb side when I don't have passengers. I fuckin' love this space.

Thank you sir! Yeah I was surprised when I submitted the plate to the DMV for approval and it passed.

Good! Just don't try to do them yourself. I did and it was a huge headache.

that would be a great parking space when I drive my mom. She needs a wheelchair-would it easier to be able to push the wheelchair close to her.

Tyler, now that you're doggie is back home, you should seek out all the large parking spaces. Take pics of you and the dog at the space and tell us which store that parking spot is at.

These size spots are common where I'm at. Then again, it seems like everyone drives a lifted Ford F-350 complete with sidepipes a 30 x 20 American flag mounted on a pole and of course truckballs the size of grapefruits. Makes Texas look like a bunch of wusses.
