Without fail, one of the most humiliating parts of driving for many is parallel parking. The stress of fitting into a tiny spot is often made worse by the playful eyes of entertained onlookers. Even traffic officers are not exempt from this embarrassment.

One social media user captured an incredibly drawn-out and suspenseful, yet entertaining moment when two traffic officers tried and failed to parallel park.

In a video shared to Facebook, a driver in an official traffic services vehicle can be seen struggling to get it into a parking spot in Sea Point. The driver’s companion stands outside the car guiding their way into the parking spot, but they exchange positions halfway through. The next officer struggles just as much for a few moments before finally getting into the spot, allowing the onlookers to breathe a sigh of relief.

Take a look at the video below:

If nothing else, at least we can be comforted by the fact that even traffic officers have difficulty to parallel park.
