I came across this little parallel parking video on Twitter and thought it was a great example for showing future students how to park:

When trying to find the actual formula I came across this article on NPR which outlines the formula with examples.
I’m logging this so in 10 years I’ll be able to use this example for my kids. I really like the lines in the video as a visual representation for what to look for.
