If you want to double park... following are some basic rules...
- If you are driving an auto car, keep it to "N"
- Keep the brake down
When you need to move out and someone is blocking you, its not unusual for a passerby to stop and help you push the car aside. You have complete strangers coming up to you and there is no need for introduction, shaking hands or any formality. They know you are in need and they have been in that position before.
At hotels, shopping complexes and crowded places there are Parking Attendants present to assist.
As a matter of fact, its a very good and efficient system. It often alleviates parking problems, increase parking space at a small area and provides a solution for an unorganised metropolitan overcrowded city, like Bangkok.
But... but... I hate it when a 4 wheel truck blocks me! So big and heavy to push :-(
