Wouldn't it be good also if the old guys and girls realised that it is meant to be 45 degrees and not 90?  ::)

Oy, not just old farts that do that... p*sses me orf too. Almost as much as the ones who angle park across 2 parking bays at the supermarket. Just sheer laziness and rudeness.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

Hey, some of those lovely old girls are lucky to actually be able to make the car go in reverse, so looking where the lines are is secondary !!   ;D

Mum’s in her late 70’s and very proud of her driving record - not a single accident except for the time she drove straight into Lake Macquarie when she was learning to drive

I keep saying to her “but have you ever looked in the rear vision mirror to check out the carnage you leave behind you?”!

I rate 45 reverse in parking highly.
  • Over shoot the slot
  • back in and park
  • having the steering wheels at the front gives makes it so much easier to park the long wheelbase ute
  • When its time to leave; Look out the drivers window, find a gap in the traffic and drive out
WIN.

45 deg drive in on the other hand.... >:(
I visit my sister in Narribri and its nose in 45 down the main street.
  • See a park and drive in... (the only advantage)
  • Go to leave, so try to look out the left rear window
  • but you can't see past the kids head in the back seat
  • get the kid to duck down, but now its the rear pillar of the vehicle
  • strain your neck trying to see past the pillar
  • now you can't see past Felicity's (blond haired farmers wife with the cane shopping basket, you've all see one) Prado/Pajero/Landcruiser that has parked next to you while you were fighting over the view
  • cross your fingers and back out and hope that Darren in the B&S ute that is probably cutting laps of Maitland St will stop in time
  • while avoiding getting hit from behind you aren't paying attention to the front corner and nearly clean up the back corner of the ute next to you or someone running across the road before Darren completes his hot lap

45 or 90 degree reverse to curb any day of the week.

So just how do you indicate that you're going to park ?Left turn, but going backwardsRight turn, but going backwards to the left
Or hazard lights and do whatever you feel like   :angel: ( which seems to cover most of the locals )

If you’re turning left, either forward or backwards, makes more sense to put your left blinker on (and if right, then do the opposite) doesn’t it?
