Brothers Break Parallel Parking World Record
With just 5.5 inches to play with, brothers won't quit to make the tight fit.
Brothers John and Alastair Moffatt broke the world record for parallel parking after squeezing their Mini Cooper into a tight space – only 5.5 inches of clearance between two parked cars.
To add to the difficulty, the brothers weren't allowed to park the old fashioned way: In reverse, using with mirrors and excessive cursing. They had to spin and slide the Mini into the spot using only braking and steering. If they touched the other two cars or went beyond a plank that stood for the curb the attempt wouldn't count.
It took the brothers multiple tries, but eventually they succeeded and have been entered into the Guinness Book of World Records.
