Parking your car trunk in first?

Posted at — Jan 4, 2013

Why do people park their cars trunk in? I do not imagine that most people are cops or that they need a fast getaway. To some extent you make it more difficult for law enforcement to get your tag numbers because they’d actually have to get out of their car… but you’ve also made it easier for a bad guy to steal your plates. And when you park in the garage you are more likely to inject exhaust fumes into the house. At least when the car was front in first the exhaust pipes pointed to the street.The only reason I can come up with is when the home is on a busy street and it’s easier to get into traffic going forward than trying to find a break in traffic going backward.But more than that… why?
