Here's a quick lesson on how not to park your car. Looking for a parking space in central Paris, a confused driver mistook the steps of a Paris metro station for an entrance to an underground train station car park, and ended up trapping his car on the stairs. Speaking with the AFP news agency, Johan, the distraught driver not from Paris, said: "There's a sign saying 'Haussmann Parking' right in front... I made a mistake."
