It's March, which can only mean one thing: Parking Madness time. Last year we asked our readers to help us crown the worst parking crater in an American city, and in that inaugural 16-entry bracket, Tulsa blew away the competition. But we know there are still plenty of other parking lots out there that make downtown look like a lunar landscape, so here comes the sequel.

A couple of things are different this time around: We're accepting submissions from anywhere, not just the United States, though we won't consider the 16 entries from last year's tournament. In some cases, like Tulsa, this will probably rule out the entire city, but other places have more than one god-awful parking crater in town. Before you submit a parking crater, please review last year's field so you can avoid sending an ineligible entry.

So show us the worst parking scars marring your city. Send your parking crater photos and a brief explanation about why it's the worst to angie [at] streetsblog [dot] org by Friday, March 14.
