Parking pet peeves revealed in study

A study has revealed what Aussies hate most about about parking their cars, with parallel parking landing the top spot. The survey of Parkhound users – an app which helps drivers find car spaces – found 58 per cent said parallel parking is the most difficult way to park, with reverse parking taking the second position at 21 per cent. A total of 12 per cent find perpendicular parking – with front to curb – the hardest, while only 8 per cent dread angled parking.
