I had a reply for your earlier suggestion, but I had to reboot and decided to scrap it because I was in the middle of editing it.
The old truck idea was funny, if nothing else
Speaking of the post about making room though:
I once saw a guy in NYC - this was years ago in a bar after a softball game for the league the company I worked for participated in - make space.
The only thing is he smacked into one or both cars (in front of and behind his car) pretty darn hard, instead of just nudging them.
I don't know if he:
1) couldn't care less about anyone else's property
2) was drunk
3) was a bad driver
4) was having a bad day - not that that is an excuse
5) all of the above
Another time in the park:
This young, immature kid who the gang played street hockey on rollerblades with, almost proudly, told a bunch of us haning out in the park that, in his drunkenness, he had side swiped a car (pretty badly) on his way home from a bar or party.
The police came to his house (I guess there was witness?), but he told them he didn't do it and his car was parked in the garage (I don't remember all the details since this was years ago as well).
Another time we were in NYC having a pre-wedding get together at a hotel's bar the night before my brother's (and my) friend's wedding.
All of a sudden we heard loud sounds.
Some person (presumably drunk or incapacitated in some other way) had side swiped hall a block worth of cars!!! The tow truck was there to remove them one by one.
