Reference: Parking remains a lost art for many Bangkok drivers, Bangkok Post, June 16, 2008
According to a Bangkok Post Commentary (Parking remains a lost art for many Bangkok drivers, Bangkok Post, June 16, 2008), "Unless you're burning off premium benzene at over 40 baht per litre, cruising on LPG/CNG, or second-guessing the merits of gasohol - you park your car". The article also says that a certain soi in Bangkok is "exacerbated by oversized commercial trucks loaded with carbonated soft drinks, who ... can roam the streets of Bangkok at all times, thus continuing the plight of brittle bones and calcium deficiency in our population". Referring to a car parked at the entrance to a soi it says "You turn into the soi where that vehicle is parked on either side of the lane".
I would like to offer my humble suggestion that these sentences are nonsensical. Along with most of the article, they belong in the category of odd prose. Parking isn't the only lost art in Bangkok, apparently.
