I usually just pull it in head first. If I can't make it I look for a new spot. It's not worth backing in when there are cars waiting behind you.

I've had my license for 4 1/2 years (I'm 20), and I've parallel parked once. So needless to say I'm screwed when I go to big cities.

To be honest I don't even think I remember how to truly parallel park, maybe I'll wing it next time.

All the time. It's not a big deal either. I grew up where parallel parking was the norm, and so were epic-sized cars that can fit a modern mid-size in their trunk.

Like you would in a carpark, and what not. Essentially a normal park. My bad.

I just find it easier to reverse into everything. Your angles are better, more sensitive to your turning, and you have an easier time getting out afterwards. Just turn the car on and go forward.

A couple of times everyday... it aint hard? You just line yourself up close side mirror to side mirror next to the car you will be parking behind... turn the wheel entirely to right, back in until you are in "\" shape (diagonal), now turn the wheel entirely to the left and back in... yay.. :)

I do it probably once or twice a year. I'm pretty decent at it. The key for me is pulling forward as close as possible next to the car that would be in front of me. Then when you back up and half of you car is past the back end of car next to you, start turning your wheel to get into the spot. The rest about familiarity with your vehicles size.

well not sure how people in usa learn parallel parking when they get their license but here in macedonia we do it with no actual cars ( there are only lines), so i never really learned it properly.

summer is coming though the town will be crowded, ill have to start doing it fml
