I do the same thing.

Don't get me wrong, I know I don't have a Ferrari, but it's something that I pay for and I don't want it messed up by careless people (women).

These are the most recent pics that have been taken, but we actually hit a parking bar pulling into a spot and cracked the front lip about two weeks ago.

you could probably park sideways in that. Definitely big enough to fit 4 smart cars.

This one wins, I think. I'd passed this space a few times before and it's ALWAYS taken but today it was free.

How does that even get enforced? Someone give you the stink-eye? Big deal. Waste of paint on the ground (wonder if it was lead-based paint).

It doesn't get enforced, as that whole roll either says "Fuel Efficient Vehicles Only" or "Carpool" and no one has either the hybrid car or even carpool... lmao Its a joke to us from day 1, I think they were bored with extra paint left over??? just guessing.

I hadn't found any worthwhile spots until just recently when I got two great ones in 24 hours.

At DQ...


And Wendy's. This one is in the hood so I'm glad I got it.
