Statistics Count continued – Day 2
Well after a few days of try to continue the count, having to start again because it seems logging stats from a bunch of pictures is harder than one originally thinks….we are back with an update on the count.
Right…top line from today’s count then:
- Cars on site = 3826
- Members of SelfishParker.com = 1090
- 104 Cars logged
- Total logged 161 = 0.04% of database
- Manufacturer ranked by selfishness:
- Overall Rank: 1) Ford, 2) Vauxhall, 3) BMW
- Colour rank:
- Overall Rank: 1) Black, 2) Silver, 3) Grey
- Registration Year
- Own Number plate
- Overall Rank: 1) Own Number Plate, 2) 2011, 3) 2003
- Car Shape rank
- Overall Rank: 1) Hatch, 2) Super-Mini, 3) Saloon
- How have they parked selfishly?
- Parked across 2 parking bays BLATENTLY – i.e. not just slightly over
- Over a bay line – i.e. not bothered to check whether they’re in between and so lazy
- Swung in – i.e. either taking up space of another bay or leaving themselves in the road
- Location (where we can determine)
- Overall Rank: 1) ASDA, 2) Morrisons, 3) Tesco
So what can we see from our seconds day’s count?
Well, someone who drives a Grey Vauxhall Saloon (i.e. Insignia or Vectra) with their own number plate will be the most statistically likely individual to park selfishly over two parking bays intentionally…at Morrisons!
Insurers…perhaps this is something to think about when considering their coverage? Whilst you consider how these people drive…why not consider how they park too? Who knows parking like this may lead to their cars being keyed or dented by others…and thus increase your costs to repair? Or…could one consider that an individual who parks badly in a selfish way could potentially be a bad and selfish driver too? Perhaps its synonymous…
