We are back to doing another uphill parking tutorial, but this time, we will teach you how to park without a curb! If you have been following our parking blog tutorials, this tutorial will be pretty easy since all the steps are similar to the previous tutorial on parking uphill with a curb, except for step 5 (the positioning of the wheels)!
Step 1: Find a parking spot
Quickly scan the vicinity and look for a parking spot that has ample space for you to safely park in.
Step 2: Use your right turn signal
Signal right to let others know that you are planning to park on the side.
Step 3: Carefully steer to the right and position your car in the spot
Do this when the area is clear and it is safe to do so. Do a shoulder check to make sure there is no pedestrian or an obstacle you may face as you start steering to the right.
Step 4: Check the side mirrors and surroundings, then steer to the left before you hit the curb
This step allows you to straighten your car in the parking spot
Step 5: Since you’re parking uphill without a curb, face wheels TOWARDS THE RIGHT
This will prevent your car from skidding dangerously while you are parked when there is NO curb
Step 6: Park gear, handbrake, and turn off your engine
As stressed in our previous tutorials, remember to do these steps whenever you park!
