  • If you are driving to a crowded area where parking is contentious, park a few blocks away instead of driving around in circles looking for that rock star spot. In most cases you will actually save time, and you probably need the exercise anyway. -–Mose 03/24/2005 11:27 AM CST
  • Back into parking spots when you're at an event that everyone will be leaving at the same time. It will be much easier for you to get out. Scrim 11:18, 20 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • Hang a tennis ball from the ceiling of your garage at the point where it will rest against your windshield when your car is pulled up far enough to leave room for adequate passage in front or behind the car. -- GH 08 Apr 05
    • But, as my favorite handyman has pointed out, you must never, ever hammer the nail from which the tennis ball will hang with your car parked under it. He's replaced two windshields implementing this hack.--J.T. Boofle 22:37, 13 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • 'Always park in the same place
    • Park Bicycle in the Same Place (Only if you are in a Bicycle-intensive environment - for example, if you are a student in Beijing)First, chose a good parking area that's not overused. Then, always park your bike there even if there is a better, nearer space. That way you won't waste time looking for your bicycle all over the place - you'll never even have to think about it !

    • Commute to school? Find a parking space or row of parking spaces in the same general area far away enough from your school to be available any time you arrive at school. You'll never have to try to remember where you parked and you will have a constant feel for how long it takes you to get to class from your "spot." --Sjanes71 20:21, 7 Apr 2005 (EDT)
  • Make your Bicycle Recognizeable (once again, for people in bicycle-heavy places) In order to easily find your bicycle, put some coloured duck tape, or tie some plastic somewhere on it. I find that a small white platic bag wrapped above the rear wheel is hardly noiticeable except when you're scanning a line of bicycles for one whith a small white platic bag wrapped above the rear wheel.

  • Make your car recognizable Stick some random object to the radio antenna, and/or hang something unique from the rear-view mirror.
  • Buy a scooter If you live in a city with lots of traffic, sell your car and buy a Vespa. You can almost always cheat traffic, skip the parking stress, and save tons of gas money. --Hafif 18:09, 20 May 2005 (EDT)
