When you park facing uphill against the curb, which way should you point your front wheels?

A Away from the curb

When you park facing uphill, you should point your 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 car from rolling. Make sure you still set your parking brake and leave your car in the correct gear.
