I couldnt watch past the first incorrect move.
Simply reverse all the way back jogging slightly past the yellow jeep and then pull forward turning to the left and viola.

I see people go through a less screwed-up version of this dance in the morning at work, trying to back into parking spaces so they can "save time" when they leave.

Either that person wasn't turning the wheel as far as it could go or that car has a very limited turning radius. Not that it's much of an excuse, they still should have been able to get out of there a lot easier than they did.

Know how I know this is Eastern Europe? Where else would you be able to bribe the driving instructor so easily?

If that person had learned that you are allowed to turn the wheel while the car is moving, or even stationary, this would not have been a problem.

What about the old people jokes?
They're fair game.

Congrats to the guy in the black station wagon. I honestly could not have held my temper through that. That guy has the patience of a saint IMO.

CSB: In high school I had a job as a gas jockey. We had a regular customer who could not figure out how to pull up on the right side of the pumps. We had two sets of pumps so normally she would pull into the middle and we would just reach over with the hose, but she couldn't do this when we were busy. I totally lost it with her one day: she got herself parked between the pump bays parked perpendicular to the pumps blocking everything and refused to let someone else drive her car to help her out. She insisted on calling her husband to come help and blocked the pumps for 45 minutes all the while acting like we, and the other customers who were honking, were being unreasonable. Then she started to cry.

Should have just called the cops.  Not that they would have done anything about it, but just to shame her as much as possible.  Create a scene, make a crowd.

Look how much the driver is turning that wheel and the front wheels barely move, something is wrong with the steering. Even if that's true they missed out on several ops to get out quicker.

That was painful to watch.

I used to have a semi-retarded German Shepherd. I imagine this is how he would drive if he were to get behind the wheel.

Well, I'm glad that blue car wasn't any bigger. I was expecting far more vehicular damage from the video...

No wonder people are amazed that I can parallel park by simply backing in.

/almost never have to pull forward

I giggled uncontrollably at this.  It should have raised my blood pressure, because it is exactly like watching my husband trying to back up a trailer.

Imagine if the white car had parked next to the blue one instead of on the line between two spaces.

She'd probably still be trying to get out of the lot.
 
2013-10-13 05:06:29 PM  
If I'd been waiting on them to get out I would have knocked on their window and asked if they want me to get the car out for them. I've seen people trying to park that aren't far off this. They'll keep turning the wheel the same and getting frustrated that it hasn't magically made it into the parking spot. It's like some people don't get that the car steers different when going backwards.

I do love driving a small car though. It's nice being able to squeeze into small parallel spots or spots where people parked over the line.

I love driving a medium sized vehicle with 3/16" to 1/4" steel bumpers and rock rails for the same reason.

Roomba-like driving detected.

Okay, fine, the driver is an idiot, but there are several things wrong with this:

1.  Who the frak designs parking lots like this?!   One set is going sideways and one set is longways?!

2. Does  anybody know how to park in the lines here?

3. If your parking lot needs hard edges to prevent people from going over them, then you've already fraked up the design.

4. Why would you dead-end a parking lot like this?  Just create a driveway going out and you wouldn't have this problem.

1. That's a perfectly cromulent* design. I parked in one just like that this afternoon, and got out with zero problems.
2. You haven't driven outside the US much, huh?
3. They're called curbs. Most parking lots have them.
4. That driver would probably have the same issue if it was a loop. It's not the parking lot, it's the driver.

For what it's worth, my former workplace mandated backing into parking spaces, and it's quite common on large industrial sites. Myself, I've found it to be much safer when pulling out, especially in a crowded lot where your visibility is restricted by the cars parked on either side of you - I drive a small car (Cavalier) and if I have SUVs, minivans, trucks or even larger sedans surrounding me, I can't see farkall if I pull in forwards and have to back out of a spot.

Clearly you have never tried to get a permit for building a parking lot.  Dumb rules can be employed when you least expect it.  We submitted a permit for 8 spots of angled parking to our local permit office for a 2500 sq foot professional office.  It was denied because we would be backing out into the right of way...on a dead end street with 4 houses on it.  Our plan revision gave us only 3 spots in the same square footage, so we built it exactly the way they drew it up, but park like it were 8 angled spots.

The driver was apparently incapable of making steering changes while reversing.  The correct move would have been to obviously back, and turn, then straighten then turn the opposite direction.  Driver would set the steering angle, and back as far as the car had room.
