It seems like either cars/trucks are getting bigger or parking spots are getting
smaller. Even at Home Depot, where you think they would have big parking spots, things can get pretty tight. Because of the angles of parked cars and how cars can turn much sharper in reverse, it is much faster for me to park my truck backwards and I usually get it much straighter than I do going straight.
I realize I might be an anomaly since I grew up having to drive and back up cattle trailers from the time I was in my tweens.
