Well, to the drivers defence there are not that many cars around at the time, but that is still quite lazy. Would it really have taken that much effort to park properly? Now the car is taking up three spaces. (You are supposed to park the car so that the front faces the building and power outlet is on the left or on the right side.)

10 years, and an average of 31 150km on the clock? i think i drive that much in a single year :?

I think Air means just that - 31 150 km per year.

Oops, I typed in km in error, Bilprovningen's statistics are in mil (x10). Total average milage.

Odd that it was so bad since its a 626 underneith.

Apparently it has a very cult like following as well
I suppose it's because KIA in the late 90's was a weird brand selling cheap crap to people who didnt care about servicing their cars. Statistics are also skewed by being a very rare car, making the percentage number volatile. But it's in all likelyhood pretty crap. Apparently one of the extremely few cars sold in Sweden and mainland Europe with double speedometer markings.

Also here's parking

There were more than enough normal spaces but none good enough for him :) Though in all honesty he wasn't in anyone's way just funny how he parked.

It would be funny as hell if he got boxed in by trucks parking in the spaces on both sides of him though.

And where else is it exactly going to go? On the sidewalk? It has to be level and on loan bearing ground. :)

Well, they could simply drive it away overnight and open the closed road for traffic.

When the lines aren't there anymore, some people are more lost than others...

This Cayenne driver made his/her own spot on a platform.
