It is often referred to as the parking technique that defeats most female drivers and a recent video clip shows just how difficult parallel parking is.
A video clip by Arrive Alive has been doing its rounds on social media, raking in the comments, views and shares as many South Africans found this driver’s dilemma to be relatable.
After many attempts to fit into a parking space, the driver gets out of her vehicle and paces between the space to make sure her car will fit.
While she confirmed that she could fit her car in the space, she still failed to manoeuvre into the parking space correctly. That is until a “good samaritan” helped her navigate and overcome this challenge, only to move her vehicle afterwards.
