So how are you supposed to gain experience and skill (and no it *isn't* pretty simple to master for all people, as some posters have attempted to explain) if you aren't even supposed to be on the road driving? That makes no sense.
And being an imperfect parker doesn't automatically mean being an unsafe driver.
I'd much rather be an imperfect parker than someone who speeds, tailgates, drink drives, texts while driving etc. I think those people are much more of a danger and annoyance to the community.
Some of these comments are pretty harsh IMO. I can how it's annoying but it's really not the worst thing that can happen on the roads. And there's a difference between people that don't give a toss and those that do their best as well.

I learned to park in shopping centres on a Sunday. Where there are ppl but not a whole heap of cars in a rush.
I get that some ppl have difficulty parking, I know I do. And this often meant parking ages away till I got my confidence up.
I parked yesterday at the gym nice and straight with enough room on all sides. Then some moron parked so close to my drivers side that my pregnant belly and I couldn't get into the car. I had to climb over from the passengers side.
I was furious as they were crooked and way too close to my car, especially as there were heaps of spaces around.
wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

I haven't read this whole thread so this may have been said but sometimes the cars already parked in surrounding apps are very poorly parked and you have no choice but to do a fairly dodgy park. Then the original offenders drive off and you are left looking like the idiot who can't park.

I'm an average parker I'd say... But I always get out to check if I'm in the bay and correct it if I'm not. Life has rules people!

A family friend posted a picture on Facebook of her poorly parked car (it had crossed the line) and complained about the council giving her a fine. She was very nasty about the parking inspector and said she would be complaining. She was clearly in the wrong... Her "friends" totally ripped into her... It was pretty amusing, she shamed herself!
Clearly some people have no concept that they could be wrong as demonstrated.

This is the kind of parking I hate. I'm on the right. These parks are quite narrow. I came out from night shift to find this. I had to climb across from the passenger side as I couldn't open my door properly to get in on the drivers side. This is just an example of laziness and sloppy parking. Very much unappreciated when I've been awake anywhere from 15-24hrs.
