The visitors’ car park at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham is large and correctly priced so that there are always spaces.  Nevertheless, it often takes twenty minutes to reach one during busy periods. 

The reason?  As each car finds a space and reverses in, half a dozen join the queue behind.  Before long the queue reaches outside the car park. 

The solution?   If there is a queue behind you, skip some places - there are always plenty more.  If everyone does the same, cars park simultaneously and the queue  melts away.

The other way to help is to generally give leaving cars priority.  This is always the right thing to do on the ground floor.  At the top levels giving incoming cars priority is more likely to release the gridlock.
