Some Of Us Are Just Really Bad At Parallel Parking


We all learn how to do it. We've all got some kind of memory of cones set up in an empty parking lot while an adult looks on as a pubescent child operates a motor vehicle trying to perform a seemingly complex maneuver. Parallel parking -- a curse brought upon us for no good reason.

YouGov.com regularly asks random members of society questions ranging from a variety of topics, one of them being "Do you think you're good at parallel parking?" Respondents were asked to rate their skillset either: Very good, Somewhat good, Somewhat bad, Very bad, or Don't know.

To be fair, most of us are only "Somewhat good" or "Very good" at this because we have rearview back up cameras (I know I am). I have to admit though, moving to a city is a great way to scare yourself straight when it comes to any part of operating a vehicle because I've really impressed myself with the things I've been able to accomplish!

I really want to meet the 10% of people that totally owned up to just being terrible at parallel parking. They've gotta be a ton of fun.
