Suburban and country settings have mail boxes at the curb.
I'd be surprised if the camera did not flag it. Mine shows yellow safe
lane to back into then as you near something like a curb there is a
yellow then red zone in back where you should stop. Even does that when
backing turning around driveway.
I always like to back in when parking and most parking lots are like
that. I did once damage car backing into my garage and if I had camera
would not have done it.
Generally true, but you have to consider the whole situation. Once you
back out of the garage where do you go? If you cannot turn around it is
more dangerous to back into traffic on a busy street.
My street in not busy, but on a hill. I prefer backing in so I can pull
forward into the street and up the hill.
Consider coming home. You try to back into your drive, you have to stop first, others have to get past you, you get in their way while you reverse into your drive. But when you're leaving, you can wait for a gap in traffic to reverse out.
Los Angeles's full name is “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la
Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula” and can be
abbreviated to 3.63% of its size, “L.A.”
On my street I have a car behind me maybe once a month so backing is
easy. It also allows the driver door to be on the same side as the side
door of the house. If my wife will be going with me next trip I pull in
so she does not have to walk as far.
Overall, it is just easier to pull out and go up the hill as I go in
that direction 99% of the time.
I reverse into my drive maybe twice a year, if I've got something heavy in the boot to get out.
No good at hill starts?
A bunch of lawyers were sitting around the office playing poker.
“I win!” says Johnson at which point Henderson throws down his cards. “That’s it! I've had it! Johnson is cheating!!!”
“How can you tell?” Phillips asked.
“Those aren't the cards I dealt him!”
Your drive was better gritted than your road?!
And get an automatic, they don't wheelspin.
A woman brought an old picture of her dead husband, wearing a hat, to the photographer. She wanted to know if the photographer could remove the hat from the picture.
He convinced her he could easily do that, and asked her what side of his head her husband parted his hair on.
My previous car was an automatic and it was very good at ice and snow. If the wheels began to spin, it would simply engage a higher gear (and very smoothly so using the torque converter), reducing the power output of the engine. Of course you had to have the sense not to put your foot to the floor. Having said that on one occasion I found that to be quite useful. I had to get up a steep hill with a foot of freshly fallen snow. Everyone kept getting stuck. I simply put my foot to the floor and went up the hill at about 20mph, although the speedo read over 100. The snow was flung to the sides by the spinning wheels as I went up and I formed a nice track. When I got to the top, I parked the car and got out, then saw a line of cars following the tracks I'd made. Three of them mouthed "thanks" and waved. If any pedestrians had got in the way, they would have received a smack in the mouth with a 100mph snowball :-)

You still wasting time and breath on the "parrot"??
Of course he hasn't driven much on ice. I don't think, personally, he
has driven much, period..
An automatic with all speed traction control, possibly with posi as
well, and good snow tires will not spin easily. But then again, I
doubt our Limey friend is driving a Mondeo Ghia.
I've driven since 1997, commuting long distances, going on holiday abroad, and driving for a living. To morons that haven't driven so much, or just follow the rules and never think for themselves, what I say may be so complicated for your little brains that you think it's nonsense.
What part of "changes up a gear itself" didn't you understand?
Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer
No, it's easier to back into a bigger space. And most importantly when reversing into a drive, you may inconvenience others when you stop and they have to go round you. When reversing out, you can wait until it's clear.
How do you scare a man?
Sneak up behind him and start throwing rice.
