SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

Nevada recently became the 17th state to remove parallel parking from its driver's test because so many people were not able to do it. How are you at parallel parking ?

     

I'm great at parallel parking (25.1%)

I'm ok with it - if the spots are big enough! (46.7%)

Ugh, I avoid parallel parking whenever I can (25.1%)

I don't live in a place where I ever need to parallel park (3.3%)

    I usually do not even try to parrallel park. I have a couple times where there was a good sized gap.  I was not actually close enough to the curb.

    I do not think this was ever a part of the driving test in my state. Maybe it depends on the area you live in. I do not think it should be a requirement. If I had the choice or parrallel parking between 2 cars or parking some where else and walking as far as half a mile.... I would park some where else and walk.

    I will drive around the block until I can find a spot to park that is not parralled parking.

    Parallel parking was always my thing. I don't do it as often as I use to but still love it. There was plenty of time I have been with some one and we had would have to hope in the driver seat just to parallel park the car.

    I'm sure my husband would disagree
