Nevada eliminates parallel parking requirement

LAS VEGAS (AP) — People who’ve been thwarted in getting their drivers licenses because they can’t parallel park might want to steer their way to Nevada. State officials have eliminated the parallel parking part of its driving skills test. The changes took effect last month. Nevada joins several other states, including California, Colorado and Florida, that have erased parallel parking from the list of driving skills needed to get a license. Nevada officials say the increasing use of technology like backup cameras, parking assistance tools and sensors had no bearing on the decision to spike the parallel parking requirement.
