Tightest Parallel Park Record Broken - Guinness World Records

Friday, 19 December 2014 14:11

Two original-Mini-driving English brothers share the Guinness record for tight parallel parking, at 5.2 extra inches or 13.1 cm.

But for the rest of us here is how to get parallel parking right:

  1. Pull alongside the car ahead of the space you want. Align your rear axle with that car's bumper.
  2. Turn the wheel toward the curb at full lock. Back up until the center of your inside rear tire aligns with the streetside edge of the forward car.
  3. Straighten wheel, continue to reverse. When your outside tire aligns with that same edge, turn the wheel the other way.
  4. If all went according to plan, you're in the space, bodywork intact. Get out and admire your work.
