Interesting Fact - Driving

According to Kevin Delaney, head of road safety at the Institute of Advanced Motorists, human beings are not genetically programmed to go backwards, so reversing in general is really quite difficult when you're learning to drive.

(This statement was prompted by the internet video doing the rounds of a woman trying to parallel park (see below).

Mr Delaney said, "There are some people who will not parallel park - they would sooner drive the extra half mile to use the supermarket car park."

What about you?)
