    This makes sense. I do that as well.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I'd rather back over the zombies. Less chance of engine damage. You know, like they do in demolition derbies.

    Makes hanging the shotgun out the window to shoot while running over said horde more difficult your way.

    When you are "combat parking" (as we called it in the army) you can see all around.

    When you are backing out of a spot, you can't see what is coming. Especially with today's distracted car herders, there is no guarantee others will notice your car backing out.

    Invariably, I get flanked by large pickups and have no idea what is behind me when I simply drive straight into a spot.

    I literally can not tell you how many accidents that I have prevented other drivers from getting into due to my situational awareness and extra effort. Of course these accidents would have been with me if not for efforts.

    Another thing that increases the likelihood of a traffic incident is driving mindlessly in the left lane. Again, your field of vision is lessened. Next time you are driving, get in the left lane and look at your right hand side view mirror. Then, go to the right lane and look behind you with the left hand side view mirror. Which gives you a better field a vision?

    I always back in to a parking spot, unless I know I need access to the hatch to unload or load. I can back in almost as fast as most people front in. IMHO, it's the way to park. 😃

    I only back in if no one else is near. I don't trust someone to wait and/or know what my intentions are.

    I do not park "backwards" in slanted parking lots either; I can't stand it when cars leave a parking lot traveling the wrong direction. I usually let the parking retarded figure out how to get past me when I have the right of way.

    Instead of saying "I don't have time," try saying "It's not a priority," and see how that feels. ~Laura Vanderkam

    Interestingly enough, you are less likely to hit something backing in then backing out... so much so that many companies that have a fleet of pickups,,, oil and gas companies, require workers to back in
