Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I haven't been driving for about a decade, so I probably can't now.

Didn't want to pay the insurance then; now too scared to drive again (without taking the lesson again).

I parallel park like a champ because I had to do it in a school bus every day for 2 years. So I got used to doing it in an area where I would have 4 feet on either end.

Honestly haven't been anywhere where I needed to in decades. But just last month I actually found myself in just that situation. Nailed it, first try! Was kinda proud of myself. Didn't have to spend $2-3K for the option to have the car do it for me either.

I lived in San Francisco for five years. I can parallel park, uphill while driving a stick.

I only parallel park downtown where there are only parallel spots. If I go to the mall, a store or work where they just have standard stalls I will pull in park. Is that special enough for you?

You CAN'T drive a car in NYC and NOT know how to parallel park!

No. but if Fringe is correct, my double probably can in a parallel universe.

I don't understand how people can't parallel park. Its the easiest thing in the world.

Why does it have to be women? I have not had a wreck in thirty years, my husband has had about five in four years and my son has totaled two vehicles, splain that!
