The rule is quite simple - if you want to own a passenger vehicle, one that will take you places and fast, you have to take a number of lessons and pass a test. Among those lessons is parallel parking, one that most of us dread the most. <a href="" target="_blank">Parallel parking</a> is a method of parking a vehicle parallel to the road (hence the term 'Parallel Parking'), in line with other parked vehicles. It is also considered one of the hardest ways to park, and that's way we can see a bunch of videos on the internet with parking fails.

New drivers learn to use reference points to align themselves in relation to the car in front of the space, to determine the proper angle for backing, and to determine when to turn the steering wheel while backing. They may find it easier to briefly stop at each reference point and turn for the next step.

This helpful son tries his best to guide a parallel park attempt by his mother, but it just doesn't go as planned! First, she totally misaligns her car! From that point on it was one disaster after the other. She backs in way too much, that fails to adjust in the spaceā€¦.the list is endless!

Speaking of embarrassing parking fails, this one particular driver has been trying to <a href="" target="_blank">park in reverse for five whole minutes</a>! In a semi-full parking lot!
