symbology Maybe they're hoping somebody rams it and totals it for them so they can get a different car without so many problems.

I kid.

moosehead89 perhaps they were expecting a new fiesta to park directly behind them in the space provided.

I know of people who did and only relied on the hand brake, but I haven't really seen or heard from them since college/ university. My old manual had the hand brake cables broken off at the drum or some place along there so I always left it in first gear, well usually, once when I was first learning I left it in third accidentally on a slight slope, but because the wheels were pointed towards the curb it didn't get very far. That only ever happened once, but even that would be more than enough to remind myself never to leave the car in any gear other than first or reverse as those have the most torque multiplication and the greatest resistance to rolling without power applied to the car. Even with the dct my routine when parking now is to stop the car, foot on the brake, put it into park and pull the hand brake before releasing the service brake pedal and shutting the car off. The car complains its not in park if you reverse the steps and pull the hand brake with your foot on the brake (at zero miles per hour) before putting the weight on the parking pawl/ gear.

If this was true, I would have been so tempted to push it to the other end of the parking lot and waited till the owner came out and tried to find there car.

TheGlassMaker I've actually had someone park like that behind me once we was in the spot sitting in the car a car pulled up directly behind us and the people got out and went in the store. We both looked at each other like really. Sure enough they parked in the aisle way like above but on the other side. We moved to another section of the lot so it looked even worse when they came out to find their car parked like that.
