Which way do you turn your wheels?

Uphill: When headed uphill at a curb, turn the front wheels away from the curb and let your vehicle roll backwards slowly until the rear part of the front wheel rests against the curb using it as a block. Downhill: When you stop your car headed downhill, turn your front wheels toward the curb.

Also asked, which way do you turn your wheels on a hill without curb?

😜😕🤧 For either uphill or downhill parking, if there is no curb, turn the wheels toward the side of the road so the car will roll away from the center of the road if the brakes fail. When you park on a sloping driveway, turn the wheels so that the car will not roll into the street if the brakes fail.

😜😕🤧 Also, what are the steps to uphill a park? Face your wheels away from the curb if you are parking uphill. Turn them facing towards the curb if you are parking downhill. Press your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral, and turn your steering wheel one full turn in the proper direction. This will keep the car from rolling out into traffic if the brakes fail.

😜😕🤧 Simply so, why do you turn wheels away from curb?

😜😕🤧 The direction the wheels should be turned, when parked facing uphill, is chosen to minimize how far out into the traffic lane the car will protrude before it comes to rest against the curve. If the front wheels are turned toward the curb, the rear wheels are what will come to a stop against the curb.

😜😕🤧 How do you curb your wheels?

😜😕🤧 If you're not sure which way your car is sloped, set the car in neutral and see which way it rolls. If you're faced downhill, turn your front wheels towards the curb. If you're faced uphill, turn your front wheels away from the curb and let your vehicle roll back until it gently touches the curb.
