Watch Incompetent Drivers Spend 8 Minutes Trying To Parallel Park Honda Civic

For some people, parallel parking is as simple as selecting reverse, turning the steering wheel a few times, and perfectly slotting into a space. For others, however, parallel parking is more difficult than writing a thesis and an endeavor that requires similar focus, time, and dedication.

A video showing two incompetent drivers in the UK trying to parallel park recently found its way onto YouTube and will likely leave you shaking your head and wondering how they have licenses.

The video starts with a lady attempting to park her Honda Civic in an absolutely massive parking space on the side of the road. Immediately, she makes the mistake of trying to drive forward into the space, rather than reversing in as any driving instructor would teach you.

For the next four minutes, this footage captured by the security camera of a nearby house shows her driving back and forth in an attempt to inch closer to the curb. Predictably, it doesn’t work.

But wait, a good Samaritan walking along the pavement offers the poor lady some assistance. Using hand gestures, he tries to guide her into the spot. It doesn’t work because he clearly has no perception of how to parallel park either.

Next, he jumps into the stranger’s car to park for her. It was a nice gesture but didn’t pan out as he adopted the same approach as her and tried to drive straight into the parking space. Perhaps embarrassed by his incompetency, he gives up after a couple of minutes of driving up and down the curb.

We presume he then went in search of the nearest football field to park.
