Learning Parking at Memorial Park Cemetery & Green Lawn Cemetery
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most complicated part of practicing how to drive is parking - specifically, backing into a parking space and parallel parking. The first type of parking is called back-in parking, and here is how you do this. Choose a parking space in the area, drive to about a car's length in front of the section, turn on your blinker and check your rearview mirrors to ensure you don't hit something (or a person). Put your left foot on the clutch and shift the manual gearbox in "R" gear. Make sure you have your foot on the clutch pedal all the way to the flooring until you start backing into the parking section. For your own security, keep your feet pushed down on the brake and clutch pedals. Then, steadily raise your left foot from the clutch until you hear the engine make a different sound and you feel the vehicle's rear lift up. Release the brake pedal and very carefully use your brake and clutch to move into the parking spot. Take care not to speed up any more than a few miles per hour. You might not be appeased with the position of the manual transmission auto on your first dry run, and that's alright. Alternate between first gear and R with the clutch work we just talked about until you're content with the parking. After you've learned back-in parking, we'll take you through the movements of parallel parking in a stick shift car. First, use your right turn signal to let other car drivers know where you wish to park. Then, drive your car forward until you're parallel with the auto in front of your desired parking space, which should be a couple of feet away. Take a careful look at your side and rear mirrors, your backup camera and your immediate surroundings for any incoming traffic. Now, push down on the brake and clutch with your feet, pushing them all the way to the floor. Keep both hands on the steering wheel and straighten it up. Then, slowly bring up your left foot from the clutch pedal until you sense the bite point. You'll hear some changes in the engine sound, and you'll feel the rear of the vehicle raise up a bit. After that, you can start slowly releasing the brake pedal to start moving into the parking space. Using your left and right feet, very carefully alternate between the clutch pedal and brake as you drive the car backwards. Keep a watchful eye on your mirrors, and when your bumper is around a yard away from the bumper of the car next to you, steer the car towards your left. Keep this slow, steady pace until you see your right rear bumper come up a couple of feet from the sidewalk, then pivot your wheel to the right. Keeping your feet close to the clutch and brake pedal, continue to carefully drive back until you maneuver into the parking spot and come to a stop.
