I was perusing Ask Metafilter and started reading about how to improve your parking. I’m an average parker, although my parallel parking is a little rusty since I rarely park that way. In any case, ever since I heard from a police officer that statistically your car is less likely to be broken into when you back in, I’ve backed into parking spaces. I don’t do it all the time, but if I’m going to be parked somewhere for a while, I do it just in case. I’m not sure why thieves would avoid cars that are backed in, but my theory is that it’s harder to hide from people driving or walking by since you’re more visible as they go by.
But all of that is secondary to my new discovery.
I’m a Fancy Parker!
