I've never needed it. The only times I've ever parallel parked were when I was practicing for my drivers test! And since it's been... 4 or 5 years? Since I've taken that... well, I'm pretty sure if I were to get in my car right now and give it a shot, I'd probably be just as awful as if I'd never done it before lol. Or maybe I'd be better at it since I have more experience driving in general. I don't know.

If I'm in the city and the place I'm going to only has on street parking (which is again a rarity for me), I choose to park in spots that are big enough for me to swing into without having to do silly maneuvering.

I can see it being a bigger deal in areas where it's needed more. I've just never been somewhere where I've needed to parallel park.
