One thing you must understand about Stuttgart is that the normal rules simply don’t apply to Mercedes drivers. Pavements, bus stops and bike lanes are simple another place to dump their hunk of metal so that Mercedes Man or Mercedes Wife don’t have to walk more than 50 metres to the shops.

This is a prime example of the way Mercedes Man rises to the challenge of the city. As we can see Chrysler Driver inconsiderately took up the last parking space, and Mercedes Man faced the possible ignomony of paying to park and then walking perhaps a whole kilometre to the shops. However Mercedes Man is not your regular driver. Quickly he realises that there is a further parking space, (traditionally known as a pavement) and without hesitation, he launches his 1.5 tonnes of metal into the gap created by fleeing pedestrians.
