New Audis come fitted with parking sensors and rear-view cameras
Drivers of small black Audis are the worst when it comes to parking correctly and considerately, AOL Cars has reported.
A study by stressfreeairportparking.com looked
at more than 8,000 vehicles parked in city centres and out-of-town retail parks and judged them on quality of parking.
The surprising results showed that 24 percent of the Audis were parked badly compared to less than 3 percent of Land Rovers – despite the size of 4x4s.
Other poorly parked vehicles included Mazdas and Mercedes.
British planning guidelines haven't been revised since 1999, with regulation stating that a parking space should be 2.4 metres wide - even though many supermarket spaces have been recorded at just 2.3 metres.
However, despite modern vehicles coming with parking sensors, rear-view cameras an even the ability to park themselves, the figures continue to surprise observers.
