When you park downhill, you should turn your tires to the right (parked on the right side of the road). In the case of mechanical failure, the car will roll into the curb or off the road, and not potentially straight into intersections and cause a collision. Avoid dry steering as it is hard on the power steering and tires (always try and turn the steering wheel when the car is slowly rolling, not with the car completely stopped).

She can be found reading the Motor Vehicle Act for fun while receiving strange looks from others. May the quest for great driving continue!
