That is an interesting collection of artworks.

Judging by the chalk writings style and the color choices, the same chalk artist created all the artworks.

This only tells half of the story. There are also the inconsiderate people who wing their doors into cars parked next to them without a second thought. When parking my Model S, I have always taken the approach of "parking in the next county," well away from other cars. It requires a bit more walking, but it's worth the peace of mind. Often, upon returning to my car, I'll find a pristine Porsche or BMW parked next to me—birds of a feather.

You can combine that with hypermiler parking:
(1) Park as close to the exit as possible to minimize driving distance
(2) Use your momentum, coasting into your parking spot
(3) Pull through so you can easily drive out.
(4) Park on a high point in the lot, so that when you leave, you can just let the car roll out its spot

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the "******* parking" is to prevent dings.

I'm not so sure. Different handwriting.

Great photos. People who park like this do not deserve to have their license plates obscured.

Sounds like you have a choice and you're making a smart one.

I am generally quite happy if I manage to get any parking spot when I need one. My little world has become so congested with cars that poor parking prospects drive my decisions on where not to go and what not to do.
