    Don't be ashamed. I drove a pickup truck for 3 years and never had sex with another man.

            Are you kidding? It's practically the new minivan. The majority of minivan buyers are men now.

    I'm surprised you've been able to avoid it. I parallel park a 70's muscle car and have never had any issues. That being said my passenger mirror is kinda broken and points down in a way that makes it really easy to see my wheel against the curb.

    Honestly I don't know how and I've never had a reason to do it. Never lived in an area busy enough that only has street parking

    I've only been forced to parallel park a go kart. I'm going on close to twenty years of driving. It isn't that I don't know how, it's that I actively seek out ways to not do it. I don't want to stop in the street and reverse.

    First time I parallel parked was a drivers test for a delivery gig. Somehow managed to pass it in a fricking ProMaster. I watched all the tutorials on YT the week before it kek.

    I try to avoid doing it, Street parking is fine but I'm not gonna try and squeeze in somewhere. Have probably only needed to do so 3-4 times since I started driving. Besides if I'm doing a lot of stuff in a city center I'm more likely to take my motorcycle.

      Squeezing is different from just parking, honestly.
      I always figure if I fought in, it's gonna be twice as hard getting out, so why bother? I'd rather park a mile a way than put myself through it.

      wtf is this thread. how do you drive without learning to parallel park

      Until I moved to the city I had zero need to, and they let you take your drivers license test in Toms River on a empty airport with no other cars around, lol

      the suburbs sound like hell

      They are but nogs in cars and the parking wars are a big factor why I wanna go back.
      Every fricking time I park to the 'NO PARKING' sign, and some dickhead will be there a centimeter from my bumper, despite not being allowed to park there and having a bus and a half's illegal space to park if he wants to. I'm fricking done with it.
      Every morning I cross my fingers and hope someone isn't kinda blocking me in

      I've been driving for 30 years.
      I used to parallel park a lot more often than I do today. I wonder why that is.

      Backup cameras make such a huge difference.

      I think they're useless

    I've gotten pretty good at gauging parking gaps by lining up my car to the spot. the tightest spot I got in had around 3 inches of play on both sides, with my crown vic too.

      I was never told to parallel park by the driving tester. Mine had me take three turns and stop next to the DMV. I only know how due to my dad teaching me and just being aware of them and looking up the correct method myself.

        i can park it just fine but its a chore in yuropistan since all the parking spaces are sized for tiny shitmobiles so it takes longer.

          Driving an American landbarge in Yurop is incredibly based, but whining about parking it isn't. I bought a GMT800 truck as my first own car, and the experience of driving it in a big and crowded Eastern European city was so magic and wonderful I now absolutely don't care how large is the vehicle I'm driving and how hard is to park it.

            im not even whining. just pointing out yuropistani parking spaces are annoying to fit into with an american barge.

            Was responding in the context of the initial post with the gif.
            Yuropoops sometimes design or mark parking spaces way too small even for the tiniest of their own cars. I don't get it myself.

    As a Europoor this seems wild to me, I have been exclusively parallel parking. Many times there is like a 3cm gap in the front and the back of the car. Also, finding a normal parking spot here can easily take 40-50 minutes. I have seen a lot of people praying inside their cars like "lord father, please give me a parking spot, amen" while they go round and round the block for even more than an hour. Nowadays I just park illegally or at places that need a lot of imagination to realize that a car can be parked there and call it a day

      While they can go a couple of blocks further, park there, walk back and spend like five minutes on all that. Never understood those people either.

    I turned a 35 foot long concrete mixer 180 degrees in a standard parking lot drive with cars parked on one side of the lot while pouring today.
