    i almost always back in

    i find its almost impossible to just pull into a spot between two cars without being on a horrible angle or having the bed
    block the one car in lol
    unless i can just pull straight through to the other side of the parking line i always back in

    it just seems so much easier for some reason

    Nice! I do that, but only if I have my trailer with me in a lot with no pull-through spots. Truck and trailer takes about 5 spots to park sideways

    Always. Parked cars seldom move, but traffic does. Rather see traffic ahead of me.

    That's funny, when I lived in an apartment when I was younger, they would not let us back-in becuase we disturbed people when we started up our trucks. lol. I had glass-packs on the '62 and when I started it up in the AM it would set off car alarms, lol.

    there's a kid in my parkade at school that has some rice-burner nissan that does that same thing.

    Anyway, I used to back into my parking spot pretty often at my old school but I don't now. The parkade im in now is all angle parking so backing in or pulling through means you have to be there early and its harder to get out.

    My whole family (wife included) always back into parking spots and even our driveway. Its much safer when you already know whats around you before you put it in "R" which stands for responsible in my opinion. Driving out is much safer from any driveway or other parking spot. I just wish that more people would do it. Nothing worse than some idiot backing out of his driveway in the winter with all the windows fogged or frosted up.

    I park in a parking garage at work and always back in...whether is my truck or one of the cars. I agree its much easier to get it out that way. My drive is very small (one car wide and only about 25-30' long) so I almost always back the trucks in. With the cars it seems to be a hit miss on whether I back in or pull in. For me it comes down to how well the mirrors seems to work for me...if I can back a car easily with the mirrors (like our '10 Charger) I'll do that mostly. If I seem to have more challenges (like our '07 cobalt or '02 PT) seems I tend to pull in.
