You're an idiot. Technology can never be used to compensate for ineptitude. Also, having parking sensors and PAS makes little difference, the reason people struggle to parallel park is due to poor understanding of how they need to maneuver the car to get into the space, not physical inability to work the controls or see in the mirrors.

I am not surprised the OP is a woman.
#2 is right. A lot of women lack the ability to use visual-spacial skills for many things. They can't take an object and rotate it in their mind and make it look like something different. wikipedia: Men on average have a standard deviation higher spatial intelligence quotient than women. This domain is one of the few where clear sex differences in cognition appear. It has also been found that spatial ability correlates with verbal ability in women but not in men, suggesting that women may use different strategies for spatial visualization tasks than men do. I'm not saying women can't parallel park but if a man and a woman were to attempt to parallel park, the man would do it faster and easier than a woman. Nothing to get mad at, just realize studies have proven it.
If you're reading this an dont know how to parallel park, here's how I learned it. 1. Have your back bumper align with the back bumper of the car in front of said parallel parking spot and put car in reverse. 2. Turn wheel all the way to the right. Then ease into the spot. 3. Turn wheel all the way to the left when your car makes a 45 degree angle to the curb.
It's people like you that make me realize how great my life is. I could be a miserable cunt like you. BTW I was driving standards at age 5. We're you or most other people at that age? Probably not! Does that make them idiots or less competent than me? Certainly not as I was given an opportunity then that others weren't. Everyone learns at different ages and times. If only everyone was as perfect as you......
why did it take you so long? and , im sorry, but you would have to be pretty sad to stand and watch someone trying to parallel park for 10 minutes.
Hey, I don't even know how to parallel park. As sad as that is, I've never had to use it in my 4 years of driving.
