Groundbased - embarrassingly, I once got myself stuck in the cab of my lorry having attempted to squeeze through a gap between a row of parked cars on my right, and a car parked half on the pavement on my left. The cab just about fitted through, but the rear of the truck was a few inches wider and I realised it wasn't going to make it so I stopped.
I then couldn't reverse because a queue of traffic had stopped behind me, and I discovered I couldn't even get out of the cab because there wasn't enough room to open either of the doors.
I had to sit there with my hand on the horn until the driver of the pavement-parked car came out to release me back into the wild.
