Take Precautions when Parking on Hills

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

Parking doesn’t seem like such a big deal to many people, but undoubtedly, in some situations special attention needs to be paid in order to ensure that one’s car doesn’t get away from him or her while parked. Indeed, parking on a hill is one such occasion which bears such risks as there may be a chance for the car to roll down the hill while parked; in order to prevent such a disastrous scenario, certain precautions need to be taken. If you’ve ever been to San Francisco, California, you’ll understand the necessity for these precautions.

If you find yourself parking uphill on a street with a curb, then it’s important to turn your front wheels toward the road and away from the curb; doing so will ensure that if your brakes fail and gravity takes over, then your car’s front tires will catch the curb and prevent disaster from occurring. Much in the same manner, if you find yourself parking downhill, then it’s important to turn your front wheels toward the curb and away from the road.

Keep yourself and others safe while parking your car on a hill! Be sure to understand the dangers which could come about while your car is parked and take the necessary precautions needed to ensure that your car doesn’t roll down the hill dangerously. Take care when parking, and also don’t hesitate to learn more about how to keep safe and improve your driving skills by taking a high quality defensive driving course online.
