    Default pull in vs pull up

    The police car drove into the car park and ____ sharply.
    A.Pulled in B.pulled up
    I don't know what to choose because both phrases mean "stop" (a vehicle stops).
    Please help me to work out the answer

    Default Re: pull in vs pull up

    We 'pull in' to a parking place, so if the police car had already entered a car park I would say it 'pulled up'.
