The Ten Trickiest Driving Maneuvers

A new survey asked 2,000 people what the hardest driving maneuvers are.  And PARALLEL PARKING took the top spot.  15% said they feel anxious when they have to do it.  And 47% have botched it so badly, they just gave up and drove off.  Here are the ten hardest driving maneuvers, according to other drivers . . .



1.  Parallel parking.


2.  Reversing into a parking spot.


3.  Reversing around a corner.


4.  Making a three-point turn in the middle of the street.


5.  Pulling forward the correct distance into a parking spot.


6.  Reversing in a straight line.


7.  Getting close enough to the curb when you park.


8.  Going around a traffic circle.


9.  Making an emergency stop.  It’s not clear if that means using your emergency brake, or just slamming on the brakes to avoid a crash.


10.  Parking on the left side, like on a one-way street.
