Not-Curbside Outtake: Back In My Day, Parallel Parking Was Part Of The Driving Test

CC 196 128 900

I don’t want to sound like a grumpy old man, but drivers under a certain age (not exclusively, of course) nowadays all-too often exhibit utter cluelessness when trying to parallel park. Sometimes, I just stand and stare in amazement as they try repeatedly to head into a parking spot. When did they stop teaching (or testing) this rather basic driving skill anyway?
