Guides to help new drivers learn how to parallel park

Story and photo by Don Warrick

These parallel parking guides have been in the Shoreline Stadium parking lot forever! They helped me learn to parallel park back in 1966!  

It surprises and is actually pleasing to me that they have stood there over the years amidst all the other changes that have occurred.

I guess there's a chance that someone replaced them at some point, but, even then, they're still there and I still occasionally see drivers practicing their parallel parking.

I wonder if any other Shoreline Area News readers recognize and remember these!

My husband practiced in a 1968 Impala back in 1975/76. He lived in Kenmore.

How interesting they've been there since at least 1966. i took Drivers Ed at Cordell Hull Jr High in the Summer (now Meridian Park Elem) 1977, and yes we used them also and both of my son's also used them to practice !
