Front tires should be pointed toward traffic. That way, if the parking brake became disengaged, the car would not roll downhill into traffic, but would instead be stopped by the tires running into the curb.
You should point your wheels away from the curb when parking up hill and toward the curb when parking down the hill. You want the vehicle to immediately make contact with the curb if is rolls.
so your car doesnt roll down the hill
if you parking uphill you turn your wheel towards the curb and if you parking down hill you turn it away
Front wheels should be pointed to the right, directed at the right side curb.
they do that so it does not roll down hill
Turn your wheels heal toward the curb, set the parking brake. This way, if the brake fails and transmission slips it will not roll into traffic.
when you are parking UPhill.supposedly then if the car rolls the wheels will contact the curb and stop the car. Down hill turn to the right
Don't leave the engine on. Set the parking brake and turn the wheels toward the curb.
When parking uphill with a curb, turn your wheels away from the curb and set the parking brake. When parking uphill without a curb, turn your wheels towards the edge of the road or shoulder and use the parking brake. When parking downhill with a curb, turn your wheels towards the curb and use the parking brake. When parking downhill without a curb, turn your wheels towards the edge of the road or shoulder and use the parking brake.
Yes, stop, set parking brake, then release clutch. it is because the parking brake could fail. used as a precaution. there is also a difference in which gear to use for the direction of the hill. you put reverce when the car is facing downhill and viceversa.
set the parking brake, turn off the ignition switch and put the vehicle in low gear if your transmission is standard, and park, if it is automatic. The wheels should not be over twelve inches from the curb.
Into the curb ... so it won't roll. On a two way street (in the USA) that would be to the right.
