Parallel Parking Can Be Difficult for Drivers

Parking is one thing a large number of drivers find a dilemma. The truth is, in keeping with a new study, 1 out of 10 car owners refrain from executing it entirely with 1 in 5 seldom attempting reverse parking.

Probably it is actually wrongly believed that when drivers have passed their driving test they’re supposed to manage every aspect of motoring from motorways to icy roads. Yet the fact is that numerous motorists battle with the ordinary elements of driving. One other fascinating fact is that 57 per cent confess to making an attempt at a reverse park and abandoning to locate somewhere else after not being able to do it.

“One essential requirement would be to keep practicing” according to Peter Skelton of Peter Skelton Driving School. “I used to live and work in London which meant parallel parking inside the smallest of places and it really improved my skills.”

The parallel park didn’t become part of test until 1991 and for that reason there is quite a large group of drivers who have not perfected the skill. Incredibly studies have revealed that it is the much younger drivers who happen to be more prone to keep away from parking entirely which could raise the question of the effectiveness of the parallel park as it is taught for the test which involves parking the car behind another car and finishing the manoeuvre with no more than a car length gap between your vehicle and the other vehicle ahead of you. In the real world you have to reverse park between two other motor vehicles into a much smaller gap.

Motorists spend on average five minutes looking to park their car before giving up. 15 per cent take as much as 17 minutes with 1% taking an astounding 30 minutes. There are also several motorists who state that they will possibly ask their spouse, a friend and occasionally a total stranger to park a car on their behalf.
