This will be a banner year for the auto makers...with all the accidents during the winter storms...thousands of new cars and trucks...they love the winter.

What is that Yellow down there...a bit of SUNSHINE.

This July...Naples/Bonita Springs area...

I see you are smart...get the end spot and park it as close as possible to the curb...no dings from the other drivers.

Nice! Congratulations! So you're in for the Poconos?!

Good guess, but I am actually right across the city line in Bala Cynwyd very close to the Easr Falls bridge.

Ok I'll bite, why are 95% of the cars parked towards the left?

funny!

the short answer is, the only access out of lot and to the main super artery highway is left.

But it is odd, considering that the center dual rows of cars, both the drive lanes front and back have same access at the bottom... so i funny that on the way in everyone loops around to face left/out.

Interesting! I have never seen that sort of consistency in parking

Lots of software engineers here. Probably calculated the most efficient way to park for quick exit.

If they're like me, probably because the sun will be at the back of the car when they come out.
