Parallel parking was solved 6 decades ago [VIDEO]

Parallel parking is hard. But who knew a clever solution to that awkward task was already invented in 1951?

One look at this video and you’ll wonder why the spare tire’s role has been so ignored over the past six decades. If you’ve yet to figure out the secret to parallel parking, this idea could be a worthy substitute.

Somebody bring back this idea, vanquishing the pain of beginner city drivers the world over. But it better happen soon, because self-parking (and autonomous) vehicles are already on their way to the mainstream.
