If you want to park in a parallel way, you need to find a place where there is a distance equal to the length of your car between already parked cars, plus at least 0.8 - 1 m.

The procedure is as follows:

  • We pass a little forward and stand next to the car in front, with an interval of about half a meter;
  • Slightly lower the rear-view mirrors, so that you can see the rear wheels of your car - they will help you choose the right time to turn;
  • Turn on the reverse gear and start the movement at a minimum speed;
  • At the moment when the rear wheel of your car is equal to the rear bumper of the front car, turn the steering wheel toward the curb, which you park, while the car should be at an angle of 30-40 degrees to the curb;
  • As soon as the front bumper of your car is level with the rear bumper of the car in front, turn the steering wheel to the side opposite to the roadside, stopping in the pocket between the already parked cars, while controlling the trajectory of the front bumper and the distance to the car behind;
  • Once between the two cars, adjust your position, moving forward and backward.
