Parking uphill slope: park first gear to prevent rolling then put on park brake; if downward slope, park then put on reverse gear, then put on brake
Parking uphill slope: park first gear to prevent rolling then put on park brake; if downward slope, park then put on reverse gear, then put on brake. Never leave the vehicle parked on neutral — unless you are “illegally parked” or you would want the vehicle to be movable just in case you are blocking someone’s path but, using your foot with your body away from the car, insert a “kalso” or wedge so it won’t roll (don’t use your hand or don’t crouch under when putting a wedge, the car might roll on you, always use just your foot, not your hand and body, for this at all times); other than that, never leave the vehicle parked on neutral, it will roll.
