You have parked next to the curb facing uphill. Which way should you point your front wheels to stop your car from rolling if your brakes should fail?
You should steer away from the curb when you park facing uphill. That way, if your car was to roll, the back of your front curbside tire would hit the curb and stop your car. If you are facing downhill, you should point your wheels toward the curb for the same reason.
