Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Traffic Tip -- May 20, 2014

Follow these reminders to assist you when parallel parking:

• Step 1 — Pull up beside the vehicle ahead of your spot, with about one metre between the vehicles. Stop when your rear bumper is aligned with the rear bumper of the other vehicle.

•Step 2 — After checking mirrors and blind spots, back up while turning sharply to the right (into the spot) so you’re at a 45-degree angle to the curb.

• Step 3 — Straighten the wheels and continue backing. Stop when the right corner of your front bumper is in line with the left corner of the other car’s rear bumper.

• Step 4 — Turn your steering wheel to the left and continue backing slowly. Your rear wheel should be close to the curb. Stop the car.

• Step 5 — Drive forward and steer to the right to straighten your vehicle. Stop when you are centred in the parking spot, no more than 45 centimetres (18 inches) from the curb.

To report road hazards or inquire about traffic matters, contact the Brandon Police Service traffic section at 204-729-2345.
