      In parking situations, it's easier to reverse into a parking space when you have a wall, other vehicle, etc. to line up with. At least it is for me. Also reduces chances of theft (but apparently not keying).


      This I didn't know. Incidentally I hardly reverse park because in double spaces thieves used to do the same on the opposite end and steal your spare wheel, heh. Plus it's a bitch to load up groceries that way, and most of my driving these days is doing just that.

      What's the reasoning for theft, though? I was taught the opposite - parking next to people supposedly making it easier for thieves to do their thing because they have some cover, especially if it's just two cars on their own.

      A thief already has enough cover behind the very vehicle he's breaking into, if he needs to that is. I've jokingly tested the doors on a lot of cars in parking lots and it's surprising how many are unlocked.

      Anyway, parking in groups is mostly about making your vehicle appear less appealing to thieves than the ones you're parked next to. If you have an alarm system, lock your doors, and don't keep a bunch of valuable crap visible from the outside, and the cars next to you do the opposite, you don't take much to worry about outside of getting keyed.
