    I was a late learner too. I think I was about 27 or 28 when I got my P's. Once I was taught how to position the car on the road (which is now second nature and I don't need to follow that little tip I was taught) I seemed to just pick up the rest so easily. I still find reverse 45 degree angle parking difficult if they have marked spots so I just avoid when I'm in NSW.

    I had no idea this was a thing! In WA some places have angled parking but it's always forward parking.

    I find reverse parking much easier than forward parking because I can see my entire car in my mirrors as opposed to not being able to actually see if my bonnet is going to hit something! I also find it easier to reverse park between two cars than if there's a spare bay but that would be solved by dipping my mirrors to see the line. 9 times out of 10 I drive forward to double check I'm in the bay straight even though I know I went in straight, I'm just paranoid about it lol!

    That's probably why I make posts like this so I can pass the paranoia on to people like @harvs!

    I don't know, but maybe parking isn't something they're good at, or maybe the car is bigger than they're used to, or maybe they're short. Or maybe they're just a d!ck. It could be any number of reasons.

    Haha makes me think of a facebook page about crappy parkers in my town. Always worried there will be a picture of my car although I don't park too badly.

    Well....I'm not a d1ck! But I'm short, the car I'm currently driving is far bigger than I'm used to and I'm not really that comfortable driving it....but I always make sure I'm parked straight and within the lines!!

    That's partly where I'm having trouble with parking. I'm short and learning in a Kia Carnival. Lol.

    I don't think name and shame things are very useful, it seems in this society - nobody is safe from a camera. If you fall over, someone could put it on the internet, if park badly, or if you wear clothes that other people find funny etc. I think it is really b*tchy to be honest.

    It just happened in SA yesterday. Someone posted a pic of an old man who was smiling at and talking to families with kids. It was widely circulated.

    Turns out he was suffering from dementia. He ended up being assaulted by someone who had seen his picture online. The family were, understandably, extremely distressed.

    The police posted about it, saying that the appropriate course of action is to contact the police, not circulate pictures of people and defame them. Someone actually wrote in the comments that dementia was no excuse for approaching people and talking to them!

    So yeah, I agree. I think it's a bit out of control tbh. What happened to presuming the best of people?
