    Parking your car is not an easy job. It is with a lot of experience and time you spend driving your car on the roads, you learn the art of parking your car in a correct manner. However, there are people who are not so careful about parking their car in a proper manner. You can cause damage to not only other people’s cars but also yours if you do not park your car in a proper manner. Hence, it is important that you understand the method of parking your car in a correct manner. Some of the guides that you can follow are:

    • Parking your car in reverse: Parking your car in reverse can be tricky in nature. Since the reverse is your blind side, it can become difficult to follow what is behind you and you may end up damaging not only your car but also another person’s property as well. While parking, you must use your signal lights so that you can indicate to the other people around you which side you are planning to park your car. This will also help them be in tune with where you plan to park your car and place their own vehicle accordingly. It is also recommended that you do take the help of your co-passenger (if there is one) so that he/she can guide you accordingly and help you avoid bumping your car into something. When you reverse your car into a space keep your wheels straightened, and keep looking back so that you are in a proper position to park your car.
    • Parking your car in parking lots and garages: One of the simple methods to park your car in a parking lot and garages is to look for a space adequate enough to fit your car. You need to park your car straight and it should be in the centre of the lot so that you do not occupy any other vehicle’s space. While looking for a parking spot, you will come across vehicles which may not have been parked in a proper manner or might be parked at an awkward angle. It is better that you avoid such lots and make an effort to find a space where you can park your car in a proper manner. You should also keep a look out for the signals and follow them so that you do not cause any traffic jams.
    • Parking your car on hills or sloping grounds: It can be extremely risky as well as tricky when it comes to parking your car on a hill or on some kind of slope. It is important to understand the use of emergency brakes so that you do not see your car sliding backward. Hence, it is extremely important to know the technique behind the method of parking your car on a hill. Therefore, make proper use of your hand brakes whenever you are parking too close to the curb. If you’re parking upwards, then your wheels must be towards the left. If you are parking downwards, then your wheels should be turned towards the right.

    Hence, these are some of the guides that you can follow when looking to park your car. If you are someone who has started driving recently, then it is important that you have someone with you so that the person can guide you when it comes to parking. It is with time that you will get acquainted with the process of parking in the correct spot and in a correct manner. However, there can be risks when you can also cause damage to your or other person’s property while parking.  Hence, it is also important that you not only follow the rules and signs on the roads properly, but you also purchase a valid car insurance policy for yourself. Your car is a luxurious item and you must take care of it by purchasing a proper car insurance policy. Your policy will take care of the expenses that you may incur during the repairing of the vehicle.
