I agree that its not necesarily the location of the spaces it is the width of them, you can get the trolly close so you can safely get your baby out or put your bag away first whatever and still see the other item plus there is also enough room to open the door wide enough to get your child in it. Some normal bays are very narrow and barely enough room to get youself in let alone try and put a child in a child seat. Especially if some inconsiderate idiot parks at a silly angle or over the lines.
I only have a three door so the doors need to open quite wide to get a child in.
I dont undestand why people without children use them when they dont really need to, being lazy!!!
Perhaps they should out the bays in a different part of the car park, people without the children may be less inclined to use them.
I find it irritating when people use the bays and they dont have children but dont very often say anything;
I hate it too, I have 3 girls under 4 and have to get into the car to strap my eldest in to her seat, some idiot shut the door while i was in and I was stuck with the child lock on! Had the baby and 2 yr old in the pram at the time right next to the car and my daughter was hysterical. The man was in a white van so clearly no kids with him, luckily the parking attendant saw him and had a go at him, gave him a £50 fine and the woman on the other side of me came and let me out. He says he doubts they ever get paid.
Worst offenders near me are the taxi drivers based next to sainsburys, closely followed by disabled badge holders, I appreciate they also need the space but they are allowed to park on the road where I'm not and have twice as many bays to start with.
I have noticed that the further away from the door the bays are the less they are used by people for popping in.
