Bad geometry in an illustration of parallel parking advice to change steering lock-to-lock when you reach a 45°: this car is going to end up halfway over the curb.

Really the inflection angle depends on distance from curb and turning radius. Switch direction when rear axle midpoint is halfway between starting and ending lines of motion, or approximately when passenger rear wheel is a bit less than halfway to curb. This car went past that point and can't straighten before reaching the curb.
