Learning Parking at Saint Francis Cemetery
As part of learning how to drive manual, you need to learn the ropes the two most tricky ways to park - backing up the car in a parking area and parallel parking in a manual vehicle. The first one discussed is what we call "back-in parking". You can do this by first driving ahead approximately an entire vehicle's length ahead of the parking spot, and putting on your blinker and making sure that there are no pedestrians or cars you may bump into. When the coast is clear, press the clutch pedal and shift the driving stick in reverse gear. See to it you push the clutch all the way down up until you start backing up the car. Now, step on the brakes and clutch pedal, pushing them down entirely. Then, slowly release the clutch until you reach the friction point - which includes a slight raise on the rear of the car and shifts to the sounds from the engine. Afterward, bring your foot off from the brake and take charge of the clutch and brake pedals to back the car in little by little. Beware not to go above a couple MPH as you accomplish this. On your first few tries, you may not like where the manual car finishes on the parking spot, so feel free to make some little adjustments, moving in and out up till you're content with how you're parked. We've got that taken care of, so now we'll find out how to safely maneuver a stick shift vehicle to conduct parallel parking. For your and other drivers' sake, put on your right blinker. Then, drive up to a couple of feet from the parking space you chose, turning up head to head with the car ahead of it. Practice your safety driving skills and look at your surroundings, turning your head around and checking out your rear camera and side view and rear view mirrors. To begin, press down on the brake and clutch pedals, keeping them on the floor. Then, get the tires on upright with the steering wheel. Next, you can take your foot off of the clutch pedal until you hit the bite point. You'll know that the clutch has released when you feel the back of the car raise and hear the sound of the engine shifting. Once you're there, bring up your right foot from the brake to get the wheels on your manual vehicle rolling. Keep your feet on the brake and clutch, cautiously operating them with your feet to retain a steady but sure movement with the car. Keep an eye on your mirrors, and when your rear bumper is a few feet behind the fender of the vehicle beside you, steer your wheels to the left with the steering wheel. Then, when you spot the rear bumper on your right closing in roughly 2-3 feet from the sidewalk, spin your steering wheel completely to the right this time. Now, keeping the manual car's same consistent pace, repeat your clutch control movements and press on and off on the clutch and brake pedals until you have the stick shift vehicle adequately stationed.
