I have never learned how to parallel park. Sad story I know. But it’s true. I am sure if I practiced I would figure it out, but it is rather hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
And why bother?
If I come to a place where I need to parallel park I just drive around the block multiple times until there are 2 open spaces in which I can easily pull into the slot without the tricky side step maneuver.
I wonder how many other disabled drivers there are out there like myself?
The Parallel Parking Disorder.
Probably not very many. Most people can parallel park, I’m sure.
Back in 2005 we traveled to Portugal and that is where I saw my first Smartcar.
When I first laid eyes on the Smartcar, I thought to myself…”Now there’s a car I could parallel park!”
Problem is… the Smartcar is a toy car. 2 adults and a teenager would never fit inside. Where do you put your groceries? A loaf of bread for that matter? I guess you tie everything on top!
