Only time I don't back in is those diagonal parking spots on narrow streets. Never liked those, I think they were designed for people who can't parallel park. My brother drove trucks for 20 years, only accident he ever had was somebody backing out of one of these in front of him. Ended up plowing about 3 more cars before he could stop and he was only going 30 Km/h. This happened in Edmunston NB, they have since removed all diagonal parking.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

You can fit more spots in diagonally than parallel. They switched a lot of parking in downtown Royal Oak (which is a really popular and busy downtown) from parallel to diagonal, and it is far better.

I'm with you on that one. I'll back park into those too given there's no traffic behind waiting on me.

If you back into a diagonal spot, you're technically driving the wrong way. At least down here, that's a good way to get a nice ticket.
