Re: Reversing onto a main road.

I learnt to drive in the UK and always reverse into a space. It's frustrating here in car parks that they request you park forwards. Just seems really unnatural to me. I also had a job where I had to visit less than safe sites and it was reinforced to reverse into a space, as its easier to make a quick getaway. This was even more important as I'm a girl! And yes, I can reverse into a space, any space without having to do umpteen manoeuvre.
Absolutely!
In fairness, I suppose if cars reversed into the spaces in front of the shop I was referring to, the traffic on the road would be held up, but then it would be a lot safer for everyone. I notice delivery trucks always reverse into their space.
Oh, and I too am very competent at reversing into parking spaces as well as parallel parking, and I am a girl!
