Parking a car on a Hill is not so hard to be learned, if you can make a manual transmission car moves, you will probably make it easily, but here you will learn the best technique for hill parking.
@ Parking the car parallel to the curb:
- your front tire of the passenger side must touch the curb in gently way, and your rear tire of passenger side should be no more than six inches from the curb.
- for parking uphill, make sure a full car's length of space is to left behind your car. this space is needed for backing into the curb.
- for parking on a downhill incline, make sure a full car's length of space is left in front of your car so that the wheels can go forward into its position.
@ Turning the tires:
- for parking uphill, turn the tires away from the curb.
- for parking downhill, turn them toward the curb.
- Press on the foot brake then place the car in neutral position, and turn the steering wheel a full turn in the proper direction and make sure to avoid dry steering.
dry steering is turning your wheels when the car is completely stopped. This is too bad on the tires and the power steering system.
@ Rolling the car into the curb:
- place the car into neutral gear, keeping your foot on the brake. When you get ready, take off your foot away of the brake.
- Let the car roll slowly downhill until you feel the front tire is touching the curb then Hit the foot brake to stop the car.
- Make sure that there are not any other car is coming up or down the hill behind you, Check your mirrors and look over your shoulders.
@ Pulling the handbrake:
- place the car stick into either first gear or reverse then Leave the car in first gear for parking on an uphill incline, and leave it in reverse for parking on a downhill incline, This helps keeping your car away from rolling, because it makes your transmission in the opposite direction which the car would roll if your emergency brake fails.
finally, Keep some of wheel chocks in your car if you are worry about your car's ability to stay stable put on a steep incline. Wheel chock is piece of wood, rubber, or metal that is designed to be placed under a wheel to keep it from rolling. Wheel chock is inexpensive, and you can buy it at almost any auto parts retailer.
