This is what happens when you arrive for work before the construction crew tasked with blocking off the parking lot.
It looked like business as usual at 5:45 but this was the scene at 4 pm.

At least it wasn't crime scene tape...

If we all that that much parking space between our cars we would drive to work more often...
Very thoughtful of them. will they do this for you again?
Yes - a nice car!

mine does fortunately so I don't worry about defining "events".
still, i am scared to death that it will get dinged or ripped off.
Bet Clutch would take that spot every day - makes going to work worthwhile?

My antique tags don't allow me to do it either buy the fine is 25$ and loss of the antique if I got pulled over. Not bad considering tags would cost me 25 a year if I had to get real ones. The antique ones are 25 for life.

Unlikely, I believe this was an anomaly.

Thank you and all that approve. After a tough season last year I'm finally getting some quality seat time.

The car's policy also has some language restricting use.
My agent isn't concerned about an occasional commute if there's an after-work event to explain the trip. whistle

Seems to me that the cordoned off display of such a clean and straight example qualifies...
