Parking skills

BBC short video clip: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-31500189
Is this rage? Bad parking or something else?  Wiping out cars in a car park.

Re: Parking skills

The first impact looks like they hit the wrong pedal by accent then tried to make off in a hurry afterwards

Re: Parking skills

I saw this yesterday on a different site.  I think on there it said he was a 90-something old, and both that site and the BBC mention a "medical emergency".  My guessing is he's panicking and hitting the wrong peddles.
Edit: This one says he was 92.

Yep an ideal time to employ the young uns as drivers on minimum wage using a fraction of our investment income.

Re: Parking skills

indeed the driverless car would be a huge bonus for most people, just think of all those business hours lost whilst driving, now you can be a more productive drone whilst the drone your sitting in takes you from place to place......
but certainly it would be of major benefit to those who are incapable of being safe behind the wheel, lets just hope when those vehicles make it to the mainstream market you don't need to hold a valid licence to operate it ....

Re: Parking skills

Does anyone here have a car with "park assist" features? The ones which tell you if a space is big enough to park in, and then do all the steering for you. Are they any good?
