    Funny thing is that be it Auto or Manual, when you step the accelerator and realise the car is moving backwards instead of forwards, the natural reaction is to let go instead of step harder or continue to step right? The fact that the car manage to hit the lorry with enough force to send it up onto the curb means the car managed to pick up quite a bit of speed and in that short distance, it would probably mean the accelerator was floored?

    most prob... must be inexperienced driver. cars can be surprising powerful even in reverse gear.

    another possibility is her intention to floor the brake pedal instead of the accelerator, but mistakenly floored the latter, thus causing the car to reverse really fast.

    Perpendicular lah... (it's either parrellel to the traffic or perpendicular to it...)

    Verticle gives me the impression that the car is standing upright on this bonnet or car boot.

    we are trying very hard to help you so that you wont get embarrassed in future, but dont think we achieved our objective ...
    the parking format depends on a driver's sitting position ....
    when you park by the side, it is parallel parking (as in you park parallel to your sitting position).... and so in Vertical Parking, it means one parks with one side of the car facing heaven,
    Example of Vertical Parking >>>> http://www.safetycenter.navy.mil/pho...photo121-1.jpg

    If one parks above another car, as in 2nd level, then it is also known as vertical parking .....

    No lah... the other terms thats commonly used are: reverse parking and head-in parking.

    Vertical doesn't make sense here.

    Really? Then how come all the driving centres and even the Traffic Police uses the term vertical parking? Explain

    When in Rome, do as The Romans do.

    The "young driver" probably do not possess any driving license and was learning to drive a car in a car park late at night.
