A parking attempt by a 56-year-old learner driver failed completely. In the parking lot of a commercial building in Bielefeld, the woman was supposed to practice parking the car backwards. Apparently she swapped the gas pedal for the brake pedal and drove backwards against a parked car, the police said on Tuesday evening. "Due to the force of the impact, the driving school vehicle stood up and tipped over on the roof in front of a wall," the statement said.
The 56-year-old and her 49-year-old driving instructor were able to leave the car unharmed. The "Neue Westfälische" published a photo of the car.
According to the police, both vehicles involved were no longer roadworthy and had to be towed away. The police estimated the property damage at around 50,000 euros.
