The letters on the asphalt speak volumes: This parking lot in Sunnyvale really has a special section for compact cars. It is one of the measures that California took to discourage the use of large cars. Anyone who knows how to measure can park closer to the office buildings. So we have nothing to look for, because ‘ our ‘ Toyota Tundra CrewMax measures 5.79 meters and does not fit in the parking areas. Stronger, cross-parked, the truck extends over three compartments.
