If you naively aim directly for the center of the space, your trailing hind corner will come too close to the car on the trailing side, and you'll be off-center in the space, too close to that guy.
That might work for your car, but it won't for mine. We have three vehicles, and each one requires a unique strategy to end up in the spot correctly and efficiently. In one of them aiming for the center of the space is the ONLY strategy that ends with the car properly centered.
