Oops

My first thought upon seeing this scene in Paris was that an accident had occurred, but I soon discovered that no, the car was designed this way………I will will keep my new car, thanks :)

I wonder if the wheels turn sideways........

Thanks for indulging me on my side trip. Tomorrow, back to our regularely scheduled city!

I would guess the person will have to limp a lot in front of spectators before somebody picks the car up and moves it out in the street.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

I'm wondering how they got out of that tight spot.

Delta sure has its parking problems

Are you running out of things in your country to photograph? :)

Wow, that's really smooshed in there. I hope it goes sideways. Wonder if its a battery charged car.
I don't mind your side trips at all. Very interesting.

I do think those little Smart cars are perfect for the tiny streets in lots of European cities. I hear they'll be sold here in the US starting next year. I do worry about their drivers on our interstates, surrounded by all the huge trucks.

Smartcars and huge inter-country trucks seem to get along just fine in the autobahns and autostrada and freeways of Europe!

ya, i saw them park so closely too when I was in Paris.

i think their parking brakes are never engaged, so that when you need to get out, you push the other cars away. haha...
