Man shares parking position hack that shows we’ve all been using car parks wrong
A man has shared a parking hack that shows we’ve all been using car parks wrong – and it could transform your life.
TikTok user bigbruva_77 shared a video of the technique with his 200 followers, and in the first nine hours it had gathered over 440,000 views and scores of comments.
In the video, the man explains that he had gone to pick up a vehicle from a General Motors lot in America, and was amazed by the way the cars were stored.
Each one was parked on the left hand line of the parking space, leaving enough space on either side for the doors to open – preventing dings and parking hassle.
In the video, the man said: “What if I told y’all we’ve been parking in parking spots wrong the whole time.
“This is where we pick up GM trucks, look how they’re parked – they’re parked on the line. You see how evenly spaced they are?
“Imagine if everyone at Walmart parked on the line, it would lessen the amount of dings and give you space to get in and out of your car.
“We’ve been doing it wrong the whole time y’all.”
After the video was shared, around 700 users flocked to TikTok to comment their opinion – with one user saying the technique made the spaces appear twice as big.
But others saw a floor in the plan, as one added: “Yo people can’t even park inside the lines, you expect them to park on it?”
And another wrote: “I mean that’s the same as if everyone parked in the middle, the general public is just bad at parking no matter what the standard is.”
