There's been some debate in the comments as to whether its the faster German cars that tend to be the ones that park the worst. We don't have enough unbiased data. We do think that 4X4s park badly, but that's for physical reasons: they are wider and reverse really badly -you can't park them into small spaces and are forced onto the yellow lines and the pavements.
German cars are just like any other: they need somewhere to park. Here in Clifton, this BMW H837GLM has found a nice spot on the pedestrian buildout on Royal York Crescent.
That could be endangering pedestrians. Someone might try crossing from the other side of the road, and not be able to get safely onto the pavement. That could be hazardous.
Fortunately, a driver of a BMW Mini has seen the risk and selflessly parked their car YH57URU in such a way as to block anyone from running out.
Only a small car like a mini would be able to parallel park on this buildout -it has done it without damage to its wingmirrors or bodywork. Nicely done.
This is a German brand, but the Austin Mini comes from Cowley, 100+ miles or so east of Bristol. Does its presence on the pavement prove or disprove the "fast German cars park worse" hypothesis?
