Video: Chinese man breaks world record for tightest parallel park, think you could do better?

Sure we had to do this finding a parking spot this morning...

It's been a while since JOE bribed our driving test examiner passed our driving test with flying colours, but we do remember having a wee bit of difficulty when attempting the dreaded parallel park.

Thankfully, we managed to nail it when it counted most (unlike this unlucky Belfast lady), but we'll all agree to say nothing about the time we set off the alarms of both the car in front AND behind us after we 'gently tapped' both of them with our vehicle and then drove off, right? Right.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. But seriously, try not to hit other cars.

Chinese driver Han Yue managed to not hit any other cars when he broke the Guinness World Record for the tightest parallel park in style, squeezing into the space with just 8cm (3.15in) to spare.

That is toight. Toight like a toiger.

We'd like to think that the Chinese papers all ran with the headline 'Han Yue believe it!?', but we don't subscribe to any of them so we can't be sure.
