Re: Parallel Park - What is the most easiest way with no reference points?

Hee hee!  cool

After 'which lane or which signal on a RAB' this is the most fun topic for an ADI forum!
I'm surprised how complicated some methods are. K.I.S.S

I have been known to do a PP on an imaginary car when inheriting a pup from another instructor who has them fixated on mirrors on rear lights or something. What if the car is the other way around, or it's blue not red?!
Just pull up in the middle of the road, 1 turn & move to 42.5°, straight wheels, go back until the front door handle is touching the kerb, turn away.  Job done.
Works the same when there's a car alongside!   cool

With a car alongside you will require some point at which to turn or they could just turn into the side of the target car, they will also probably need a theodolite and a bloke holding a stick with numbers on to gain an accurate angle of 42.5 degrees!!  :p

Re: Parallel Park - What is the most easiest way with no reference points?

cool  Most people suggest a 45° angle but it's one of those occasions when 'less is more'.  Slightly less angle gives then a hint more time to sort out when to turn away from the kerb, and less turn is required.  I leave it up to them to work out where 42.5° is!  It's basically just trying to make the point that more than 45 makes it much much harder!  Like odd test times, also more memorable!

As for when to turn when alongside a car, sure you need a ref.  Same as for the bay park, the RRC, etc.  See the back of the car in the rear side window, obs/turn.  If you can see it in the window you won't hit it, whether that's the kerb on RRC, the white line of a bay, a gatepost on your driveway, etc tongue
If the car is the 'wrong' way round and the bonnet is low and out of sight, just give it an extra foot or so - no shortage of room on your test!  You can also use the door mirror as you would with a bay park between vehicles.

Basically, the refs are similar for many Mans, with the odd specific variation.  I give them a method, either talk through or demo, point out what I'm looking for/at, then mostly leave them to it.  Unless they have a really rubbish spatial awareness, most people work it out with some practice and the odd ref/hint.   cool

Being a proponent of CCL I don't hassle them too much if they turn at 43° or 41° rather than the official 42.5°   lol

Re: Parallel Park - What is the most easiest way with no reference points?

The BBC obviously can't park, there 'method' is almost guaranteed to fail, if you line up both cars parallel and then steer to the left it will only work if you do minimal steering, which will not work for a tight gap, if you do a full lock and then steer right as the car is getting close to the kerb you are almost certainly going to swing into the car in front as you have not gone further back past it. If it is a tight gap I do a full lock left, straighten up, then a full lock right when I have cleared the parked car ahead and am a reasonable distance from the kerb. Lets just hope lots of people do not do what the BBC advise, also don't like the idea of looking in the rear view mirror to see how close the car behind it, it is much easier to judge, in my opinion, by looking out of the back window over the shoulder.

Re: Parallel Park - What is the most easiest way with no reference points?

I agree with 1, 2, 3, second part of 4, 5 & 6.

Why complicate matters when there is a passenger door mirror handy. Over time, practicing, spacial awareness will take over and render the whole process automatic.
