Is it because they are poor drivers or do their fat asses need more space between parked cars? (No time to read the article.)
The article really didn't say.
I would have given a pile for wider spaces when I was trying to wrestle my baby's car seat in and out of the back seat. I took to leaving notes on cars that had parked on (or OVER) the line and made it (nearly) impossible to get that seat in because I couldn't open my
door wide enough. And no, I do not own a minivan with sliding doors. I refuse.
Thank goodness those days are over (for me) but I do find myself being more careful to park correctly...especially if I see the neighboring car with kids seats in them.
