How to learn how to park
A good driver is determined by several things. Firstly, behind the wheel, he does not turn into a hysterical woman who considers everyone around her idiots. Secondly, he knows how to park properly. We are unlikely to be able to teach manners, but to teach how to park - no problem. Moreover, for this you need to know just a few rules.
Here is a plan of action that will help you to park properly and not hurt nearby cars:
- Drive up to the parking spot and stop a bit ahead of it. Your rear wheel should be parallel to the rear bumper of the vehicle in front. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the side of the road.
- Take it back until the center of your rear wheel is level with the near edge of the car in front. Align the steering wheel and continue to pass back.
- When the second rear wheel also reaches the edge of the car, turn the steering wheel to the other side.
- If everything went according to plan - turn off the car, open the door, get out of the car, close the door and put the car on the alarm. And do not forget to enjoy the results of your work!
And if you are of the type of people who still do not understand how to fit the car into such a small space, then here is the formula that determines the amount of space needed for a successful parking:
where: r is the turning radius of your vehicle, l is the wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear axle of the car), k is the distance between the center of the front wheel and the front of the car, w is the width of the car you park at.
Or you can just trust us and try this plan in action. It is worth saying that cars with rear view cameras are much easier to park. If there is no such camera, you will have to be content with rear-view mirrors.
