Parking Madness has gone international. Today we welcome our first parking crater contender from outside the United States, as Canada’s third largest city faces off against the home of the Gator Bowl. It’s Calgary versus Jacksonville.

Pretty impressive! We don’t have much background on this entry, submitted by Dale Calkins, other than the parking crater’s obvious proximity to some of Calgary’s tallest buildings. Here’s the view of the area on Google Maps.

Can Jacksonville top that? America’s reputation is on the line here:
