Smart car, dumb parking! Driver squeezes his tiny vehicle into gap HORIZONTALLY and leaves the bonnet sticking out causing traffic delays

  • Dashcam footage shows car squeezed between two other vehicles in Edgware
  • Several other cars have to wait while vehicles carefully get around the tiny car
  • Filmer said the parking was ‘selfish’ as there was free spaces 50 metres away

A driver who managed to squeeze their tiny car into a small gap might have gotten a good parking space but they caused delays for other motorists. 

Dashcam footage of the little car shows it squeezed in between a black Lexus and a white van on Deansbrook Road in Edgware, London, last Thursday morning.

However its bonnet is sticking out into the road, meaning other cars have to slow down and carefully go around so they do not hit it.

Video shows one driver approaching the unusual parking and exclaiming ‘I can’t believe this’ as they wait to get past.

The motorist has to wait for five other cars in the opposite lane to drive past before they get a chance to move when a white Mini lets them through.

Mrs Price, from Stroud, Gloucestershire, said at the time she was ticketed: ‘I have parked like this in Stroud, London and Bristol and never had any trouble before.

‘If you go to the Smart website they show you pictures of their cars parked in this way.’
