Drivers who do not frequent urban areas may find it difficult to face the task of parallel parking.
For some car drivers, the daunting task of parallel parking can make them nervous and leave them drenched in sweat.
It can certainly be a challenge for drivers who are used to parking in driveways and parking lots.
While most vehicles come equipped with a backup and front-facing camera, parallel parking is a skill worth perfecting no matter what you’re driving.
Below, we’ll present a step-by-step guide to getting your car into the perfect corner.
To begin with, motorists should keep driving until they find a spot large enough for their vehicle.
Parallel parking begins with the front of your vehicle in line with another vehicle’s rearview mirror.
- Hit the car first. If your vehicles are of different lengths, line up behind your vehicle with the back of the vehicle in front as much as possible.
- When coming to a complete stop, turn the wheel all the way to the right or left depending on your parking position. Do not move forward or backward while doing this.
- Start backing up as quickly as possible. Your car will start to turn the point; however, do not spin your wheel from the all-right/left position.
- Stop reversing when the front right or left corner of the vehicle behind is centered on your rear windshield.
- Stop the car.
- At full stop, place your wheels back in the center position.
- Back up slowly until your car has just passed the car, then stop.
- When stopping, turn the wheel all the way to the left or right. Please stop doing this.
- Then continue to reverse. Don’t spin your wheel from a left or right vantage point.
- When your car is parallel, stop and turn the wheel to face forward again.
