If any of you have been wondering why automakers even bother with automatic parallel and perpendicular parking systems, just watch this dash-cam video from Australia.
Filmed at an outdoor parking lot in a plaza somewhere in the state of Victoria, it shows a woman in a Toyota Corolla (Australia’s version of Europe’s Toyota Auris and North America’s Scion iM) having a ridiculously hard time getting into a spot.
After multiple failed efforts to back into the opening (by the way, did you notice that it has a sign for parents with babies?), she decides that the only way to tackle this parking impasse is to switch ends, which proved to be a wise move….
As for the gent filming, he stated on YouTube: would have offered to park it for her, but I was too busy laughing.
