My side of the road

I often wonder if those who built multi-storey car parks used a blueprint from the 1960s. Because trying to negotiate a modern car, even of moderate proportions, around them certainly risks damage to your wheels or skirting.
I don't know about you but I find it nerve-racking, especially if I'm driving something big with an expensive set of alloys.
There are a few I won't/can't use because I am not going to put a test car to unnecessary risk of damage (there are enough on the road to do that).
I know many of these car parks were built when space was like gold dust and I know there are physical impositions. But my God some are nearly non-negotiable.
It is an awful dilemma: park safely and risk damage; park in the street and risk damage.
Let me know what you think or what your experiences have been.
