(Joe, you'll like this)
New personal policy put in place today. Unless marked, I am now backing into every parking spot. This morning, I was backing out of a space, past the point of yielding to cross traffic, when a guy decided to drive right behind the car I was driving (company car, not the i-MiEV). I was looking the other way at that moment when I noticed movement in the rear view mirror, and immediately hit the brakes to avoid a collision. The guy then proceeded to run the stop sign on his way out of the lot, but he wasn't in a hurry.
I know there'll be disagreement, but a parking space is a much more controlled environment to be driving into half-blind. Plus, an empty space can be scoped out before parking (you drive past then back in, right?).
OK, rant over.
