Do you ever feel like Austin Powers when you are trying to park your car? Well don’t fret, today we go where no Asian mothers have gone before…parallel parking.
Step 4: Reverse slowly into spot and turn your steering wheel all the way towards the direction of curb. If you hit the curb, you have gone to far. Once your front end is clear, turn your steering wheel towards the opposite direction away from the curb and slide into the spot.

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m not the BEST driver (I’m Asian, what). And up until recently, not so great at parallel parking either. If you live in the land of strip malls aplenty, aka: suburbia, there’s simply no need to street park, EVER. I just park my little car in plenty of roomy parking spaces fit for a school bus. Thankfully, I got a lot of practice living in San Francisco for 8 months, the street parking capital from hell. Now that I’m back in the OC, I parallel park for FUN. Itty bitty tight spaces? I scoff at you. And if you stumbled across our page because you wanted to know how to parallel park perfectly, you’ve come to the right place. But apparently some agency called the DMV seems to self-proclaim authority on this subject also has something to say about parallel parking. Who are these people and what are they wearing? Clearly their credibility is questionable.
