How to park properly

Experienced car drivers know that the skill of parking properly is one of the main things when driving a car. When teaching driving, this skill is given special attention. Different types of parking require different maneuvers. Consider the basic methods and rules for parking a car, as well as tips for choosing a parking space.

Car parking rules in Ukraine

According to Ukrainian traffic rules, the concept of parking includes a stop of a car lasting more than 5 minutes. According to the rules you can not stop:

  • on narrow roads;
  • on railway and tram rails;
  • on the left side of the highway with a dividing strip;
  • on the territory of lawns;
  • near local transport stops;
  • along the parked cars in the second row.

It is also unacceptable to make auto-stops on bridges, overpasses, in tunnels and on overpasses. At night, it is forbidden to park cars on roadsides and places with limited visibility.

Pedestrian crossings, roadworks and intersections must be at least 10 meters away from the parking lot. Also, you can not park near garbage cans at a distance of less than 5 m from them. You can stop cars on the sidewalks, but pedestrians must be able to walk along the sidewalk with a width of at least 2 meters.

In Kiev, there are some features of car parking. First of all, paid car parks must be equipped with a parking meter or barrier. An information table on prices and methods of calculation is installed on the territory. Pay for parking with special parking tickets.

It is important to follow the established parking rules in order to avoid evacuation of the car. You can choose and rent a suitable car at NarsCars on the best rental conditions. The conditions for car rental are detailed on the company's website.

In Ukraine, there are several ways of car parking, which are selected depending on the situation and conditions on the road. It can be carried out either by moving forward or using reverse gear. When driving forward, there should be plenty of room to maneuver. By maneuvering the rear part, you can park in a minimum area.

Correct parking

Principles of parallel parking

Parallel parking is possible forward and reverse. You can park in front like this:

  • drive forward;
  • adjust the reverse.

When parking at the curb, it is important to remember that you can not stop urgently. Therefore, at a distance of 1.5 m, you should turn on the right turn signal and conditionally divide the distance to the curb into 3 parts. Then you need to rebuild twice for 2/3 of the conditional distance.

Dividing the process into 2-3 approaches, it is important to slowly park. Some instructors recommend using a rear-view mirror. This tip doesn't work at 10-15 km/h as the car will be at an angle to the curb. And this means that a gap will be visible in the mirror, although the front wheel may be close to the curb. This is a risk of scratching the cap and tire.

If you park in reverse obliquely, it is enough just to align the front right side of the car with the rear left side of the car in front. The rear of the machine must be in line with the right side of the machine in front. After that, you need to unscrew the steering wheel and turn it to the left until it stops. The front of the car will pass the parked car in front. For a parallel position, you need to drive about 1.5 meters.

How to park

Perpendicular parking principles

Perpendicular parking is done in two ways. The first method is used in the area, where there is a lot of free space. It consists of the following steps:

  1. Drive along the road, where cars are parked on the left perpendicular to some border.
  2. Choose a free place and equate the front wheels with the right rear side of a nearby car.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and drive in an arc to your destination.
  4. While reversing, reverse and align the wheels, completing parking.

Another way to reverse is the following maneuver:

  1. Pass directly behind those cars between which you need to park with a distance of about 2 meters from them.
  2. Start moving slowly in reverse and turn the front wheels all the way to the right. Looking in the right mirror, you need to go around the left side of a nearby car.
  3. When the distance decreases to 20 cm between the right edge of the car and the left edge of the neighboring car, you need to align the wheels and turn half-side back.
  4. Finally, turn the steering wheel to the right and align the wheels.

Recommendations for the selection of parking spaces

For a safe car park, it is important to choose a suitable location. The main recommendations for such a selection are:

  • parking with a roof;
  • illuminated place;
  • lack of dry trees, old dilapidated buildings.

Covered car parking is the best option as it protects from the sun, rain and snow. For parking in the open, it is better to choose a lighted place where there are no dry trees and old dilapidated buildings nearby that can cause harm.
