    Very common in Serangoon Gardens. Executing a 3 pointer after dropping my girlfriend off is madness. Barely 10 cm of space.
    same problem can be seen in Sembawang Hills Drive. got house with porch, got big garden... still park on roadside... effectively turning a 2-lane road into a single lane road. and not to say they drive Kancils or Picantos... but Benzes, Camrys and the likes.

    how gracious can society be these days.

    AS long as it's legal to park on the road, I don't see anything wrong with that.

    What irks me is the countless drivers who park their cars head-in in front of their landed property gates, with the rear half of the car sticking out into traffic and the front half blocking the pedestrian walkway. From a driver's point of view, they are hard to see and a dangerous obstruction. From a pedestrian point of view, they force everyone, including children, elderly, and disabled to walk near the middle of a sometimes busy road just to get around the parked car.

    This is again something based either on extreme selfishness or extreme stupidity on part of those who park in this manner.

    Then for normal parking lots, reserve in is correct or forward in is correct?

    Both works unless informed.
