Most of us are parking the wrong way, AAA says

Here are some embarrassing stats that make us believe we should all invest in self-driving cars: We are all apparently parking wrong. 

AAA says more than 76 percent of U.S. drivers are parking incorrectly, "U.S. drivers most frequently park their vehicle by pulling forward into a parking spot ... a riskier practice that driving experts warn leaves pedestrians more vulnerable."


Back into those parking spots! 

"But! I always pull forward into a parking spot!" That's OK, it's never too late to start workin' on those mad reversin' skills. 

Now, all cars manufactured by 2018 will have rearview cameras with enhanced visibility, but they're not 100 percent effective, so don't completely rely on them.

"So, I'm gonna try to back into this space ... and this you're telling me, is the right way," an ABC anchor said. 

"This is the right way to park," a AAA worker said.

Seriously, nothing is more embarrassing than having to call your mother or spouse to tell them you got into an accident in a parking lot. Just trust us on this one.
