The British make certain assumptions about people of all the different races around the world - some of them polite and positive, some less so. Two of the attributes which we ascribe to the Germans are efficiency and engineering skill. And this car park in Munich certainly seems to confirm this.
One question that springs to mind is how do they lock each car in its cubicle. Who cares? No one in their right mind would try to climb up to it. But believe me - the Germans will lock that car! The actual space that the facility occupies is approximately only 20% of a comparable facility with the traditional design that is used primarily in the US or UK. Not only is the German structure less expensive to build, but vehicles are also 'retrieved' in less time and without the potential of being damaged by an attendant.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages.

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
