Just wondered what people used as a marker when you parallel park.

The car behind :p

I'm actually not aware that I use any marker, I just reverse in, and somehow turn the wheel when the time is right.

Girle parking tip

With me the passenger wiper lines up to the curb, when sitting in a normal position.
That makes's it 3 inches from the curb to the wheels. :rolleyes:

One of the benefits of 11 years in the Motor Trade is that I can pretty much park any car in any space big enough to take it, pretty much straight every time, and only using the mirrors.

Until reading this thread I hadn't even thought about 'how' I do it, I just do it.

I have to move cars about at work occasionally, I might moan about how big some of them are, but ive never had a problem parking anything, I like most others, just do it :eek:

I coat mine in KY so it just slides right in. It is invaluable when trying to park it up a tight alley.
