Default Driver's Ed: Practice parking your car

While searching for computer games, I came across the following link:

Drivers Ed Parking Game - Play Online Drivers Ed Parking Game Games at ParkingGames247.com

This is a free online game that presents you some of the typical parking scenarios. You have to park your car in the designated spot, without crashing into any other cars or obstacles.

One of the common parking mistakes I have seen people do is to enter the parking space head-first. With parking spaces at a premium, almost always you will find that the space available is barely enough to squeeze in the car. If you enter headlong into the space, you will invariably leave the butt of the car jutting out into the road. A potential traffic hazard! Reversing into the empty slot is almost always the best and the only way. But sadly people don't practice moving backwards as much as they practice moving forward, and so they cannot effectively utilize the space, or end up scraping their own and others' cars. I hope this game or other similar games give some good insight on reversing a car into tight spots.
