I know in the scheme of things this is totally unimportant, but I love to understand what makes people tick, so please bear with me.
I’ve noticed a massive increase in people “backing” into parking spots. Why?
Parking is a two-act process (getting in, getting out), so you cannot just say, “well I can just zip out when I leave”. The two actions have to be taken as a pair.
Let’s compare the two. I’ll call the method of driving in/backing out as “traditional” and backing in/driving out as “new”.
The scenario is a parking spot between two cars.
I’ll stipulate that driving into the spot (traditional) is as easy as driving out (new). If so, then the only way to determine which method has more benefit is to compare backing out (traditional) with backing in (new).
IMHO it is easier to back out (tarditional) because you are already aligned with your neighboring vehicles. Backing in requires more work; you have to align as you back in.
Therefore it seems illogical to me do this.
So where am I wrong. Is my stipulation incorect?
Have a nice day and drive safely.
