When I was practicing for my driver's test, one of the things the instructor said was imperative to learn was how to parallel park. To this day, it's one of the most difficult things for drivers to do - wedge their car into a space against a curb. These days, you don't have to know how.

Later this week, we'll show you how the latest Richard's Ride - the 2015 Ford Escape Titanium from Lakeview Ford Lincoln - does the parallel parking for you. Yes, the car parks itself!

It takes a little leap of faith to let go of the wheel and allow the car to wedge itself into a parallel space, but it does it! We'll show you later this week!

The Richard Piet Show is heard weekday mornings from 5:30-9 on WBCK
