    You know what also thwarts door dings? Your on-the-line parking job. Others may laugh, snipe, or cry foul. I say way to maximize your space.
  • I've never seen a parking garage with those between the cars before. I'd be in heaven. And I second greenpony. The first thing I noticed is hugging the line on the open side. My other favorite (don't know if it helps or not) when parked next to open areas or curbs is to angle the back just slightly towards the other spot. That way they often judge their spacing by the back most edge of the car and end up further away. On the downside though if the angle is too much the other cars may follow the angle into their spot.
  • Wow I wonder why more garages haven't thought of that. They'd go to the top of my list.

    Dan is the man - I echo all the others that cheating on the end parking space plus the foam pads is the way to do it. All honor to you, sir. Parking smart takes so little extra time and effort, and it's so worthwhile to do it like this.
  • The irony here is that the people that go out of their way to park where there are the pads are the ones that are concerned about their cars and could likely park in a tight area without hitting anyone elses car.

    Hey, liners are in, right? As long as its an end spot, that is. Place is called Wally Park. They've got locations at several airports around the country. The humorous name is merely a bonus.
