    In the last few releases, probably since 7.1, I've noticed the P symbol in the IC (instrument cluster) pop up randomly where I knew there was no "real" parking space. This would happen when driving relatively slowly in city traffic.

    So I finally got a screen capture of such an example as I was stopped at a red light. I put the car in reverse, and the display confirmed what I suspected: where the heck does the car think it's going to park? No way it was going to fit in that "space", which is basically a break in the curb for a crosswalk!

    Mine want to park in the middle of a 3 lane road when stopped at the red lights. Cars on both side.

    Just goes to show that the Tesla is game to give it a try just in case you wanted to park in a nontraditional space.
    Early on it was sometimes difficult to get it to recognize a real space. Now it seems to have a more liberal view of the world. I prefer the latter since I can tell the difference.

    The OPs situation looks like a reasonable mistake, the break in the media does look like a parking space. In Rome that would be parking for two cars or 20 mopeds!
