    You could go to a parking lot with someone and practice for 30 minutes and be better...

    It looks like she spends the last minute of that video trying to get her car locked.

    On the plus side life must seem so fulfilling when the most basic tasks present such a huge challenge.

    THe thing about parallel parking is if you spend an hour with someone, you can learn a system that will work every time. Like a step by step process. Yea, maybe you won't be able to park if you only have six inches of extra room, but for the majority of cases, you can just do the exact same thing and it'll work.

    Could do the parallel park pretty well on my test. Still failed with 7 major faults.

    I remember when I got my license 15 years ago, you didn't even need to do a parallel park to pass. Apparently the test in New Zealand has been made really difficult now and they're quite strict.

    Think that lady definitely does need park assist

    Yeah, I'm still on my learner's permit and did one with my mum - after blundering around for 5 minutes because she couldn't verbalise how to do it properly, I ended up more-or-less working it out - and then had an instructor go through step-by-step and I have no problems.

    It really isn't that difficult.

    Can't believe how much this has taken off, it's five minutes from where I live. It's the culchie commentary that makes it.

    I was genuinely elated by the cheer that went up when she parked. It was also frustrating I wanted to park the car myself at points. In the end she didn't leave much room for the black car to pull out.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Occassionally you use words that are new to me - had to google culchie. good stuff.

    culchie is a term sometimes used to describe a person from rural Ireland. In Dublin, it is often used to describe someone from without the bounds of the 'M50' motorway. It usually has a pejorative meaning, but is also reclaimed by some proud of their rural origin, and may be used by either side in craic between town and country people.

    Your local paper needs to track down the driver for an interview.
