Learning Parking at Publix Super Market at The Shops at Stratford Hills
As part of learning how to drive manual, you need to learn the two most difficult ways to park - backing up the vehicle in a parking space and parallel parking on a manual vehicle. The first one pointed out is what we call "back-in parking". You can do this by first pulling up about a whole vehicle's length ahead of the parking space, and turning on your blinker and making sure that there aren't cars or pedestrians you might run into. When the coast is clear, push down on the clutch pedal and slide the driving stick in reverse gear. Ensure you press on the clutch all the way down until you begin backing up the car. Now, push down on the brakes and clutch pedal, pressing them completely. Then, slowly let go of the clutch until you reach the friction point - which includes a list up on the back of the car and shifts to the sounds from the engine. After that, bring your foot off from the brake and take charge of the clutch and brake pedals to back the car up slowly but surely. Make sure not to go above a few MPH as you accomplish this. On your first several tries, you might not like where the manual car winds up on the parking spot, so feel free to do some slight adjustments, inching in and out up till you're content with how you're parked. We've got that addressed, so now we'll review how to safely navigate a stick shift vehicle to accomplish parallel parking. For your and other drivers' benefit, turn on your right blinker. Then, pull up to a couple feet from the parking area you want, coming up head to head with the car ahead of it. Apply your safety driving skills and check out your surroundings, turning your head around and checking out your rear camera and side view and rear view mirrors. To start, push down on the brake and clutch pedals, keeping them down on the floor. Then, get the tires on aligned with the steering wheel. Afterwards, you can take your foot off of the clutch pedal until you reach the bite point. You'll know that the clutch has released when you sense the rear of the car raise and hear the vibration of the engine shifting. Once you're there, bring up your right foot from the brake pedal to get the wheels on your manual vehicle going. Keep your feet on the brake and clutch, diligently controlling them with your feet to maintain an even but sure pace with the car. Keep an eye on your mirrors, and when your rear bumper is a few feet behind the bumper 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 approximately 2-3 feet from the curb, rotate your steering wheel to the right this time. Now, keeping up the manual car's same steady pace, repeat your clutch control steps and press off and on the clutch and brake pedals until you get the stick shift vehicle successfully parked.
