“Whenever I drive into a parking garage with a low ceiling, I duck my head down in my car”

"I tend to duck my head a little when I pull into the airport-parking garage so I don’t hit my head” was printed in the book Women Fly (2001) by Martha Dreskin. “Today, I realized that I duck my head while driving in a parking garage so my car doesn’t hit the ceiling” was posted on Twitter by My Life Is Average on August 2, 2009. “Whenever I drive into a parking garage with a low ceiling, I duck my head down in my car like it helps!” was posted on Twitter by Kandee Johnson on April 8, 2014.

“I duck my head down while driving into underground parking garages to make my car fit, in case you wondered what kind of superior intellect I’ve passed down to my kids” was posted on Twitter by Stephanie Ortiz on December 3, 2017. This version of the “duck my head” saying has been printed on many images.
