This Guy Is The King Of Parallel Parking
Parallel parking – one of the most dreaded maneuvers that any driver will have to face at least once in his driving life. Parallel parking can be extremely overwhelming, especially if you mess up the initial angle, in which case you may have to start over as there really isn’t enough room for corrections in tight parking situations. And that’s with an empty street, what about the pressure that can arise with onlookers and other cars patiently waiting for you to execute the maneuver? Yeah, most people would probably be looking for a perpendicular parking spot instead.
But for this guy in India, parallel parking of his Toyota Innova is part of his daily routine. For those of you who don’t know, a Toyota Innova is a six- or seven-seat utility vehicle built on a scale chassis and powered by a gasoline or turbo-diesel engine. It’s great for transporting people, and according to this video fits perfectly into one of the most precarious parking spots we’ve ever seen. In fact, we don’t even know if it’s a parking spot, with the cemented portion just wide and long enough to fit the wheelbase of the Innova.
The driver says the vehicle is not even his and belongs to a friend who lends it to him because he needs it to work. Also, the viral video of his parking skills was shot without his knowledge by his wife standing on a balcony overlooking the “parking space”.
Apparently the driver is already quite experienced and is used to handling much bigger vehicles with the same precision. His previous jobs had him driving a jeep over dangerous terrain, and he drove a 12.5-meter bus. Yep, getting to know the relatively smaller Toyota Innova was a snap.
