DRIVERS were blown away by this TikTok video showing how we’ve all been wrong about parking.
bigbruvva_77 uploaded the video, which has now been viewed by more than 7.2 million people on the social media channel.
He begins the video by saying, “What if I told you all that we parked in parking lots wrong the entire time,” as he walks through a large parking lot.
He continues: “This is where we pick up GM trucks, look how they’re parked, they park on the line.”
The video shows how each car in the parking lot is not parked centrally, but parked hard on the left line of the parking bay.
bigbruvva_77 continues, “Can you see how evenly they are distributed? Imagine if everyone at Walmart parked in line.”
The video shows a large gap to the left of each car, giving the driver plenty of room to open the door and get in.
In the US, the driver’s side of the car is on the left.
bigbruvva_77 says “It would reduce the number of dents and give you room to get in and out.
“We’ve been getting it wrong all along, y’all.”
However, people in the comments were quick to point out that this parking hack might not be quite as clever.
raducristian368 commented, “You realize it will be the same room if they were all in the middle…”
ryanwg02 emphasizes: “It works great if everyone can park well and all vehicles have the same width.”
And mojosupbro scoffed: “What if I told you all that if they all park in the middle, the distance between them would be the same.”
Marcoshernandez7254 was also pessimistic: “People can’t park between the lines, which gives the impression that people can park directly on a line.”
