It probably seemed a lot closer than it was, but I still would've seen him sooner if I was pulling forward out of the spot, especially more so in the i-MiEV (with it being "snoutless"
. Believe me, the lack of a front end has saved me from a high speed collision with a BMW.)
New policy is working well so far. If someone else is around when I'm trying to park, I usually put the turn signal on to say I want the spot.
As for the Seinfeld clip, you drive past a parallel parking spot and back into it. George is right. The exception (though not in the book) is when there are two consecutive spots. Then one may pull in nose-first.
