If you park your vehicle facing uphill next to a curb, which way should you point your front wheels?

Correct answer

  • Away from the curb
  • Parallel to the curb
  • Toward the right


When you park facing uphill, you should point your wheels away from the curb and then roll back slowly so that the rear part of the right front wheel rests against the curb. If your brakes fail, the curb will block your car from rolling backward. Make sure you still set your parking brake and leave your car in the correct gear (Park for an automatic transmission or first gear for maximum forward torque with a manual transmission).
