Tips for parallel parking

For easy parallel parking it is necessary to follow some simple rules.
Rule 1
When parking back, we must first approach the car behind which we park after we turn on the emergency lights.
The rear door of the car has a triangular window (it serves as a reference for where the rear tires are). The car moves backwards and when the driver sees the rear of the adjacent car through this window it is necessary to make 3 full turns (right if parked to the right) or (left if parked to the left). The movement must be diagonal in the parking space.
Rule 2
During this maneuver, the driver should look in the left side mirror (if parked to the right) or in the right side mirror (if parked to the left).
When the rear-view mirror shows the entire rear-view mirror image, the steering wheel should be upright.
Rule 3
As he moves back, the driver looks at the right-hand side mirror (if parked to the right) or in the left side mirror (if parked to the left), and when aligned with the rear corner of the front car (at a sufficient distance) turn (left if parked to the right) or (to the right if parked to the left). It is important that during this maneuver you are careful not to hit the front. The backward movement continues while the car stands parallel to the sidewalk. It is only to park in the middle between the two cars.

These tips are only meant to point you to proper maneuvering, situations in real conditions may vary. due to differences in dimensions and distances. The driver has to make sure that the car will fit in the chosen parking space and that it will not hit a side object during the maneuver.
