American confused at the way British people park outside their homes – can you see what's wrong? | The Sun

THERE are plenty of things in your everyday life that might seem completely normal – but would absolutely baffle someone from a different culture.

An American TikToker living in the UK has gone viral after pointing out a strange quirk Brits do with our motors.


In the video, which has racked up over 100,000 views, the American films a row of houses with cars parked outside their garages.

And he asked: "Why do British people build garages in their living rooms but then park in their front yards? It's so strange."

Another said: “The garage isn't for cars so what's that got to do with the driveway? The garage is for storing tea bags and a permanently boiled kettle.”

And a third commented: “Can't be bothered to open and close garage, they'd rather drive off."

However, some more serious comments offering the TikTok visitor a proper explanation.

They told them that garages are often too small for modern cars, and are usually used for storage instead.
