Corner parking a longer car

When discussing Corner Parking, we noted that there is only room to do this in a short car. That's on a weekday.

Here in Cotham at a weekend, the commuter traffic is all gone, leaving room for residents to park their cars with less problems. Which means there is finally enough room to squeeze a long car such as an Audi A6 estate into the corner parking slot.

There's a small problem here, and its one of mathematics. The longer the vehicle length, the more of the pavement it has to cut across. Because the alternative would be to stick further into the road. That would inconvenience other cars and be antisocial, which is why considerate drivers make sure they get up on the pavement instead.
