No More Door Dings?
“Murphy’s Law for parking lots: never park next to a car in worse condition than yours.”
I have no idea if local grocery store chain Byerly’s in fact came up with the idea — but that’s where I first saw it, a few weeks ago: a double stripe between parking spots.
Unlike the single stripe, it creates a buffer between adjacent cars — and a safety margin between you and the sloppy parker next door.
Will the trend catch on?
I hope so.
But, I’m guessing only at the cornfield-sized, suburban parking lots where overcrowding isn’t an issue — not at the too-close urban ones where it is (like the St. Louis Park Trade Joe’s, and the 50th & France Lund’s).
