Making a niche between 2 cars is always a stressful time!
Especially when there are cars behind that start to honk.
Each time, there is a good chance of missing your niche …
… and this, even if we know the rules learned at the driving school …
Luckily, a truck driver friend gave me his tip for succeeding in his tight niche every time without stressing.
Don’t worry, it’s simple and anyone can do it! Look :

Stand next to the car in front of the place where you want to park. Back up so that the center of your rear wheels are aligned with the rear bumper of the car in front of you. As soon as it’s good, turn your steering wheel fully towards the sidewalk.
Back up until the center of your inside rear wheel is aligned with the “street” side of the car in front. At this point, straighten the steering wheel to put it straight.
Continue backing up until your outer rear wheel is aligned with the “street” side of the car in front of you. Then, steer the steering wheel all the way to the “street” side.
Back up slowly between the two cars and voila: you are perfectly parked in the parking space. Switch off the ignition and get out of your car to admire the work!

There you go, you now know how to succeed each time a tight window between 2 cars without stressing 🙂
Easy, convenient and efficient, isn’t it?
Congratulations! You just niche like a boss, in one movement and without a single hitch on your beautiful bodywork!
How do you know if you have enough room to niche?
Researchers at the University of London have calculated the exact length a car needs to make a niche.
Look at the mathematical formula to succeed in your niche every time:
This formula depends on:
– your car’s turning radius (r),
– its wheelbase (l),
– the distance between the center of the front wheel and the front of the car (k),
– and the width of the car in front of the space in which you want to park (w).
Awesome, isn’t it? But if like me you are bad at math, the best is still to do it with the naked eye 😉
