Mathematics And Perfect Reverse Parking

Leave a comment

It’s always a bit of a surprise when maths proves to have practical relevance in everyday life.
Here’s some links to articles on the subject.
The researchers in London who did the math.
And Men’s Health magazine translates it into prose for those of us who are non-math types.
1. Pull alongside the car ahead of the spot you want and align your rear tires with that car’s bumper.
2. Turn your wheel toward the curb as far as it will go.
3. Back up until the center of your inside rear tire aligns with the street side edge of that forward car. Straighten the wheel and keep backing up.
4. When your outside tire aligns with that same edge, turn your wheel out toward the street and keep reversing.
