Everybody has had trouble squeezing into those bite-size parking spots. After all, it's quite a feat to maneuver 2 tons of metal in between two white lines.
However, there are some parking gaffes that are simply inexcusable, such as ramming your car into the sedan behind you (or worse yet, a building) while trying to parallel park. In those situations, an apologetic note on the windshield just doesn't cut it.
This, and worse, happens as we gather up the top 15 parking fail videos caught on camera. Inspired by our friends at FAILblog
we sought failures on four wheels of epic proportions.
15. Epic Cop Fail

13. Assistance Win
This driver spends four minutes trying to back into a spot until someone else takes the wheel and does the job in just under nine seconds.
12. Rearview Mirror Fail
