It is being reported on social media that a motorist in Yorkton parked his vehicle correctly yesterday.

The alleged event took place about mid-morning Thursday in the Yorkton Value Village parking lot according to Jimmy Jefferies, a shopper who said he witnessed the incident.

“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “This car was parked perfectly, right between the lines. The rear end wasn’t even sticking out into traffic. I bet this has never happened before.”

Terri Lefebvre Prince, the City historian, said these events are indeed rare, but not unheard of.

“The last one I personally remember was around 2009 at Home Hardware,” she said. “In the 1970s there was one year, I think it was 1977, we had two, at the old Safeway, I believe, but that’s highly unusual.”

Not everyone was complimentary.

“He parked away from all the other cars,” said Joe Bevacqua. “Anybody could park proper under those conditions.”

Nevertheless, by the time the man came out of the store, a group of people had gathered around to admire the parking job.

“When the guy came out of the store, everybody cheered,” Jefferies said. “I feel really lucky that I was in the right place at the right time. It’s kind of like seeing a triple rainbow; it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
