Anyone who’s ever been to the hospital will know how tricky it can be to find a space, with roads around the infirmary regularly jammed bumper to bumper with cars grabbing every last available spot.

We’ve all driven endlessly up and down the roads around DRI looking fruitlessly for a space, often spotting one but by the time you get there, finding it’s been grabbed by another driver.

But the driver behind the wheel of this Smart car came up with a clever idea – wedging their tiny motor between two cars on Armthorpe Lane after reversing into a miniscule gap between the other vehicles.
