** [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA V]] sometimes averts your car staying where it is. If you leave any of your non default cars anywhere too long that's not a designated garage/parking area owned by your character, they will disappear. Sometimes they show up in the games impound lot, other times they are just gone forever (which can be frustrating if you poured a lot of money into them in the custom shop).

One does not need to be a [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll Rock Star]] to acquire Rock Star Parking. This has also been referred to as "''Series/CharliesAngels'' Parking", or "Series/{{Kojak}} parking" because of the trope's frequency in that show. Also seems to be a built-in ability of any CoolCar.

* ''Film/TheHorrorOfPartyBeach'': In the ''MysteryScienceTheater3000''-screened movie, the hero drives into midtown Manhattan to buy a big jar of sodium from a store there. Not only is the street in front of the store deserted, so are all the streets in the entire city of New York. Naturally, the ''Mystery'' crew mocked the situation.

** Averted in the groundbreaking "Parking Garage" episode where they spend the entire episode wandering around the garage trying to find where they parked. To make it even sillier, Kramer was carrying a boxed TV set which fitness nut Michael Richards insisted contain an actual (CRT) television.

* In the TV movie ''Series/GetSmart Again'', Max actually ignores several decent parking spaces to park in a no parking area. He then takes a fake parking meter out of his trunk (Which is rigged to always claim that he has time left) and sets it up next to his car so he doesn't have to pay for the space.

Not to be confused with ImprobableParkingSkills, which come into play ''after'' the space is found, or parking in [[TakeTwoInteractive Rockstar Games]], which is also quite easier than in real life.

* In ''Series/MacGyver'', Mac is also always able to find a parking spot directly in front of whatever building he needs to visit, which are always on suspiciously empty streets.

* Often seen in urban-themed movies from the 60s, especially if Doris Day is involved (it's also been called "Doris Day Parking").

* ''{{Seinfeld}}'' did an episode where George gets great parking spaces throughout and is extremely excited about it ("The Bris"). Then of course there is the eponymously titled "The Parking Spot", where George spends the entire episode fighting with a guy over a great parking spot, each with only half their car in the spot, holding up traffic and distracting pedestrians.
