It is extremely dangerous to park car on hilly areas or those with valleys or cliffs. You never know on such narrow and hairpin turns who shall knock you.


I agree with you too that we never can tell them otherwise they will go wild on us only. So no meaning of approaching them. I don't think they will understand until they face something bad because of the same. I wish no one face such thing but what other I can say.

I think when visiting a place, sometimes you do not know what sites you will encounter. When for instance you come across a good view of a hill, the first thing would be to park by the road and take pictures. I understand you might inconvenience other travellers using the same route. However, It would be for a few minutes. After all, it is likely that all of you are are interested in sight seeing. So why not park too and join in the fun of having breath-taking pictures of the site?

I agree with you at this point that parking cars anywhere where you feel like is a common thing which should be avoided as it increase the chances of accidents. I am in a country where road rules are too strict and even the slightest rule break could cause you anything from $100 to 500 besides demerit points which might deprive you of your driving license. Actually we must increase awareness by stricter rules and higher penalties to bring things on track.

Such kind of strict rules are important. I wish here too we can have them so that people will start following those rules because of that. Here no one cares about rules and regulation. They don't even care about creating problems for others by this way. So it is pointless to tell anything to them. I tried it once and I end up listening only.

It was very wrong of those people to park their cars by the side of hilly roads that aren't even spaced enough. Come to think of IT driving on a hill is tough and having to meander pass cars parked recklessly by the side of such roads could e terrible. If it's on a flat broad road parking a car by the side is more understandable as there will be enough space for the oncoming and going cars. While on fun tour good parking is one safety measure that ought to be taken seriously.

Yes it should be taken seriously. It can create problems to others and to them also. I mean it can create small or major accident so it will create problem for both parties. I don't know about other areas, but here hilly roads are mostly really narrow. So to park car on such road is surely not safe.

Some persons will just park their cars and won't stop for a moment to check if they parked properly. Whether they are in a hurry or just being insensitive is what I can't get. The road safety authorities need to wake up to address this menace and stiffen the punishment for such recklessness.

I have seen many people just park like that to have photos and seeing scenery around. So I wonder if they are in hurry for this things. If there is some emergency case or something like flat tire then we can understand that kind of parking. But otherwise they are just being careless.

The worse part of it such careless drivers sometimes extend this reckless parking attitude to the express way. This makes it a tough drive for trailers and other articulated vehicles to use the express freely.
