'Perché si sta girando in QUEL modo??’ Baffling moment driver does a ’150-point turn’ instead of reversing out of parking space at a shopping centre in New Zealand
A driver has earned ridicule online after footage was shared of their misguided attempts to leave a parking space by performing a ‘150-point turn’ at a shopping centre in New Zealand.
The motorist, who was driving an aging Toyota Previa MPV, took more than three minutes to exit the space by turning around using forward and reverse gears, instead of simply backing out and driving off.
The footage was filmed by Mark Barnes was getting a milkshake with his son at Five Mile Shopping Centre in Queenstown, a luglio 27.

Instead of reversing out of the parking bay, the woman decided to turn around and drive out
Social media users praised her skill in managing the manoeuvre but questioned why she did it in the first place
Exasperating footage shows the grey people carrier almost scraping against the trolley bay next to it as the woman tried but failed to reverse straight out.
Mr Barnes, 50, watched as, instead of just straightening her vehicle, the driver then performed a lengthy series of mini-turns across two parking spaces.
Incredibilmente, after almost four minutes of careful manoeuvring, the grey car managed to drive off having not hit the trolley bay or a black 4×4 parked just two spaces over.
Mr Barnes, who works in security, disse: 'Stavo pensando “I can’t believe what I’m watching”. It reminded me of the Austin Powers scene where he gets stuck turning in the hallway.
‘We were getting a shake and I noticed a lady trying to get out of a parking space. She had already made five attempts to get out.
‘I started filming ’cause I couldn’t believe what she was doing. When she was trying to reverse out she kept getting closer and closer to the shopping cart barrier.
After almost four minutes, the car was able to drive off without any further problems
‘There was one free space next to her and then the black truck. Overall she did a great job getting out the way she did.’
Mr Barnes’ video has been viewed more than 228,000 volte.
One viewer said: ‘I’ve been reversing out of car parks wrong all this time. I need to do a 150-point turn.’
Another conceded: 'In realtà, besides being totally illogical, it was quite an impressive effort.’
Un terzo aggiunto: ‘I’ve never seen so much and so little skill at the same time.’
