One man claimed that we have all parked poorly in parking lots for years – and showed us the right way.
TikTok user bigbruva_77 shared a video of the technique with his followers – and it quickly went viral.
He was picking up a vehicle from a General Motors lot in America when he noticed that all the cars were parked identically.

Each car had been parked right on the left row of the parking space, appearing to leave a lot more room on either side of the vehicles compared to trying to park perfectly between the two rows.
In the video, he explained, “What if I told all of you that we parked in the wrong parking lots all the time.
“This is where we pick up the GM trucks, look how they’re parked – they’re parked on the line. See how evenly spaced they are?
“Imagine if everyone at Walmart parked on the line it would reduce the number of hits and give you room to get in and out of your car.
“We’ve done it wrong all the time, all of you.”
Some viewers were impressed with the idea.
One of them wrote: “Wow I can’t believe how simple it is! “
A second added: “It’s like the line is meant to help us.”
But others saw major flaws in the plan – including the fact that we all had to agree on the rule for it to work.
Another wrote: “Your people can’t even park inside the lines, do you expect them to park on them?”
And a third agreed, adding, “I think people will have a hard time parking right on the line, which will probably lead to more accidents.”
