When you park your vehicle facing uphill on the right side of a street with a curb, you should steer

A away from the curb.

A vehicle facing uphill may roll backward if its brakes fail. Therefore, when you park facing uphill next to a curb on the right, you should point your front wheels away from the curb and then roll back slowly so that the rear part of the right front wheel rests against the curb. If your brakes fail, the curb will block your vehicle from rolling. Shift into Park (for an automatic transmission) or first gear (for maximum forward torque with a manual transmission). Set the parking brake.
