How come I've never seen this poll? I back park religiously, whether it be at home, in a lot, or anywhere for that matter. I prefer not being partially blind when pulling out onto a public road, but that's just me.
The idea of it (according to the Smith system), is that things are always changing. So when you back In first it's easier to see to just pull out. Say you pull straight in and two giant trucks park on each side then it's even hard to back out then normal and a lot harder to see what's coming when your back is facing the main point of concern

But in your situation it's not really a problem lol I'd just rather back into a place I know is empty theb into traffic
Due to my work sometimes I have to get to job site's that are behind construction barricades and the only way out is backing up ( sometimes for even 2, 3 miles ) with not much room for error so I got pretty good at reversing.
That being said, I have a few spots at my building were it's a lot easier to park in reverse ( one way yard ) but other than that if I can chose I'm gonna pull straight just to be safe.
Were I live by the way, in the village public spaces it is forbidden to back into a parking spot.
Ever since I got my drivers permit, I always backed in, thought the car looked cool like that! 40 years later, it's a habit I can't break......OCD? Had a neighbor ask me one morning about 5 years ago, "wild party last night?" I said no, why? He noticed I pulled my truck straight into my driveway the night before! LOL, was in a hurry I guess!
I drive a box truck for work and you can't see out the back and they have limited visibility to the rear obviously lol but we're kinda required to back in first since we can see what is in the spot before we back in. "Plan your escape upon arrival"
Hello guys, so there's an independant car dealer selling a 2010 turbocharged cobalt with 79k miles on it for only 3.4k USD. Considering the price and the general looks of the car (it's neat, no rust and looks well maintened from what i can see in the pictures, for the body at least). Thing is...
I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt. I need a fuel tank sending unit that GM discontinued. Where can I get this part? I live in NJ and nobody has it including junk yards. Called 3 dealers and told me to look in junk yard. I am at my wits end. Please help me.
car has a strong gas odor after it has been parked and i see that there was a recall for the fuel pump module because the plastic lines were cracking. is that recall still open? Bulletin # 09226. car has less than 100,000 miles.
