This Epic Parallel Parking Battle Has the Internet in a Heated Debate

By

Finding parking in a large city can be a nightmare, especially in a locale as car-dependent as Los Angeles. At least in places like Chicago and NYC, the topography and transit systems allow a good portion of the population to rely on public transportation, but in L.A., it's pretty impractical for most commuters. If your neighborhood doesn't have much parking off the street, it can be a real struggle to find a spot close to home, and that can lead to people engaging in some pretty shameful behaviors.

Mariah Flores, who calls herself "Chicken Tikka Mariah" on Twitter (A+ handle, btw) documented one such incident of car owners behaving badly this week when she spotted two drivers in an hourlong standoff over a spot across the street from her apartment. The scene begins a little after 6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time with two sedans, one black and one silver, fighting for dominance.
