Self-parking car from Toyota in US soon

(via Engadget)

I know sooooo many people who need this.  It amazes me how much trouble people have parallel parking.

Vehicles that are able to parallel park themselves while drivers sit and relax behind the wheel are coming to the United States, according to a Local 6 News report.

New Toyota hybrid cars are now available in Britain with a $700 “parking assist” option.

Local 6 news showed video of a driver sitting and allowing the car’s steering wheel to turn on its own as it pulled into a tight parking spot on a London street. The reporter never touched the wheel as the car parked itself.
