And better to start with... a toy car with rotating wheels. For what? You need to understand in which direction the wheels turn when you spin the wheel and what happens in the body of the car. All problems with all types of Parking occur from a misunderstanding, in which direction you turn the wheel. Take a toy car and begin to imitate-in to the curb. Please note that when you start to twist the steering wheel when reversing, for example, in the left side, the machine begins to make a left turn. First, she makes a half turn from right to left – so start working the wheel. Therefore, any parallel Parking should be made taking into account the geometry of motion.
If you Park between two cars, before the start of the maneuver you have to stop your car at the level of the rear bumper ahead of the standing machine. And try to put the car as close as possible. So it will be easier to "drive" the car into the formed pocket. When performing a maneuver do not forget to follow the hood of his car. He does a maneuver, and because you're standing close to the other car, when driving you can catch.
If I put the car to the curb, don't forget to watch it. Do not Park on the sound - so the machine can be pretty serious scratch. If the curb in the mirror is not visible, do not be lazy to open the door and see how close they are. Or during Parking, you can omit the mirrors to see the curb and part of the road.
The success of parallel Parking depends on the correct operation of the wheel. Remember: if you Park on the right side, the first wheel turn to the right to drive part of the body, and then to the left to align the car. If you Park on the left side, respectively, first turn the steering wheel left to drive part of the body a few inches to the curb, and then twist the wheel to the right, thereby aligning the position of the car.
