That is a pretty design, that basket weave pattern. I used that pattern on deck. Parking wasn't a problem, but it did save me a a zillion miter cuts.

Front seat doors also look to be opening into gaps, between and behind cars so other cars parking up against the white line doesn't cause as much of a hassle (or, as in German: painenzeparkendööropenjämmed)

As with anything, it depends on the user having a grain or two of common sense*.
Several floors of a local multi-storey car park are laid out in the classic herringbone pattern.
It's simple, the bays are slanted at about 45 degrees to the centre line of the 'road', you can park with minimum of delay to queuing traffic behind, and when it's time to go reversing out automatically points you in the direction of the exit.
Unfortunately not everyone has grasped this concept. One user actually reverses into the bay.
Why burden yourself with the hassle of making a 135 degree reversing manoeuvre when you don't have to?
Equally driving out, while giving a visiblity advantage, requires a corresponding right turn of 135 degrees again.
The driving lane between opposite parking rows isn't that wide so it's likely that exiting will require, at the very least, a two stage operation.
Life puzzles me at times.


* The trouble with common sense is that it's not very common.

I think they (who ever they are) are putting stupid powder in the water, every time we go out some idiot tries to kill us. We hide at home now, and go out only when necessary.

You guys have to have front licence plates don't you? If it weren't for that, I'd say there was a good chance he was hiding his plates from mobile plate-readers.

A lot of towns/cities in states that don't require front plates have an ordinance/law prohibiting backing into parking places. In some locales, even your own driveway.

Yep, plates are required both ends.

In this instance, I think that the driver may have been one of life's non-conformists.


Or perhaps just a bit daft.

Ah, but! If you accidentally went the wrong way down the parking lane in the first place, that means you pass the free space, then back into it as if your car were moving in the correct direction to begin with.

Don't ask me how I know.

Looks nice and neat.
Apparently their little old ladies are better at backing up than ours.
And I don't see any one-ton pickups with duallies.

45 deg Herring bone with an overlap like the Germans, or there's an invisible wall between like the junkyard.

We have mostly the 90 deg, and 60 deg. I do like the look of the third option.

It seems to be the most common arrangement in the UK.
It's simple and has stood the test of time.

I did a Google search and stumbled across an academic paper that resorts to the most byzantine of maths to prove a point that everyone knows*.
It's the second link down (Optimisation of Car Park Designs) if you're really that interested. Or bored enough.

*We're back to common sense again. See above.

Of course, why didn't I think of that?

I had to edit that, the first time it ended up like this...
