More and more Smart cars in Paris: it's all about parking.  Developed by the watchmaker Swatch and Mercedes-Benz, the citadine measures 2m50 and can be parked almost anywhere. Although parking  a car perpendicular to the sidewalk where parallel parking is the rule contravenes the French Code de la Route, parking a Smart car in this way is sometimes tolerated in the big cities.

une voiture:  a car
une citadine:  here, a small car destined for use in urban traffic

  1. i hope the other two drivers don't need to leave in a hurry; it's going to be difficult trying to navigate out of the car spaces with the Smart Car parking so close!
