A new bill has been introduced by a state lawmaker to remove parallel parking from the driving test.  The bill has come in response to citizens failing the driving tests for parallel parking before being able to get on the road and having to repay $50 to take the test again.

Parallel parking has been a requirement for anyone in the state of Michigan to get their operators license to drive a vehicle.  The argument is that parallel parking is a lost art and not many cities require it on the streets anymore because they switched to slanted parking spots.

Do you agree with this new bill and the reason behind it?  Should everyone still be required to learn parallel parking?  Is parallel parking a lost art?  How well do you parallel park?
