Nicely put!In my experience, compact spaces are legislated to encourage people to buy smaller (as a proxy for more efficient) cars. This policy though has some undesirable side effects. Even people in small cars don't want door dings or to have someone park so close that they completely lose access to their own vehicle. This motivates some compact car owners to park in non-compact spaces. In lots where there are a limited total number of spaces (ie: more people want to park than the lot has space for), this forces some non-compact cars to either go find a different lot (not always a possibility) or to park their non-compact car in a compact space. And in extreme circumstances, it results in large vehicles being parked "in" compact spaces. This just exacerbates the feedback loop of compact car owners wanting to park in non-compact spaces. And large cars being forced to park in compact spaces. And a further side effect is that when large vehicles are parked in compact spaces, there is no way to defeat the physics of space so they end up "spilling over" into neighboring spaces. This spillage ends up lowering the total number of available spaces overall which again exacerbates the feedback loop.
I am VERY much looking forward to the CT where I can ignore the dangers of door dings, use summon to get access to my CT even if someone parks too close, and theoretically with parking ticket avoidance "find" additional parking if no other reasonable spaces are available.
me too, whenever possible.In our little town the chain grocery store has a fair sized parking lot with unrealistic parking lines painted for a car. Problem is we are a truck town, everyone has their mirrors extended for the trailer that is not behind them including me. Quite a few of us have large guards in front of the truck to keep deer out of your radiator. We also have a lot of duallies running around including me. Most of the trucks park in the back 40, not a rule we just do. New comers figure it out when a car parks next to them and they have to squeeze, I use to be able to squeeze in but now days I will walk farther in hope I will never have to try. I will be parking Cybertruck in the back 40.
They said 14" of travel in the reveal, IIRC.Where did you see that? I have yet to see concrete specs on the exact amount of suspension adjustment.
(And the 75" number has been repeated since tho not on twitters.)Where did you see that? I have yet to see concrete specs on the exact amount of suspension adjustment.
