There's a house near where I work, and they've just put in decking in the front garden. And parked their car on it. Is this a recipe for disaster? It's a smallish people carrier, so not tiny. The decking isn't raised a lot from the ground, but it must be up a couple of inches, on the battens. We're all sure the car is going to go through it, sooner or later and with lesser or greater degrees of suddeness.
