    I think those who can back up should, but others, as referenced in the above post, would be better off pulling through two spots and parking so they don't have to back up if it's too difficult for them. I'm trying to figure how backing up ones truck affects national defense, but I just don't get it. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth", so say the scriptures. I see they won't win it or earn it, they shall inherit it after all the brave ones have left.

    I always do. Being a medic, I've been taught and pre-programmed that this is the safest way due to blind spots, ect...plus, it's 100 times easier to get out. I even back my girlfriends car into parking spaces when I drive it.

    100% agree with BILLNORMAN...

    In addition, when there is a lot of snow on the ground, and there are fewer parking spots, I like to crawl the truck up the side of the snow drifts.

    Always back in. I can park a lot quicker because if I just pull in a usually back out and correct it. Plus growing up on a farm and driving semi makes you a very efficient backer upper. lol on X2 on what phonfish said. My employer Monsanto is full of safety freaks and they did studies on there parking lots. They recommend backing in whenever possible.

    Some people say I'm paranoid, I call it 'ultra vigilant'.

    Being that there are still inconsiderate dum ****s, Im one of those that if you see a black shortbed DEEP in the parking lot long walk,thats were i have my on choice of parking,It's very RARE i drive to work in it, but when i pull it out to stretch it's legs i do back in a corner spot, to answer the question, i guess it's just a truck thing,But yet seems easier..

    I drive in most times, but i like to back into a spot if I am in a tight parking lot, in my work truck, or with crazies parking around me, then you can get the heck out of there!!
