According to A study with Vanaramain an average of 11 years and three months (May 2034), UK cars will be too big to park a place to park a car.

Only four countries (South Korea, USA, Vietnam and Ethiopia) will outgrow theirs space before Great Britain.

So this will happen in May 2034 as car sizes continue to slowly increase.

Top 10 countries that will outgrow parking spaces the fastest

1. South Korea – one year, six months (on average parking lot size: 5.3 x 2.5 m)

2. USA – one year nine months (5.5 x 2.6 m)

3. Vietnam – Three years, six months (5.3 x 2.5 m)

4. Ethiopia – 11 years (5.3 x 2.5 m)

5. Great Britain – 11 years, three months (5 x 2.8 m)

6. Turkey – 15 years, 4 months (5.3 x 2.5 m)

7. Argentina – 15 years and 9 months (5.3 x 2.5 m)

8. India – 20 years, three months (5m x 2.5m)

9. Poland – 29 years, 5 months (5.3 x 2.5 m)

10. Philippines – 34 years, 10 months (5 x 2.5 m)

Along with this, Vanarama researched how many extra miles parking lot asphalt is needed to maintain the same number of parking spaces.

The UK came third on the list because it will need an extra 33 miles of asphalt for every 100,000 bays by 2030.

Applied to approximately 11.3 million bays, that’s a total of 3,729 miles of additional parking lot necessary – just to maintain the current number of places in the UK.

If you build all that tarmac it will go from Land’s End to John O’Groats and back twice.
