I see people doing this and I think it's stupid. They have to back in and pull out 3 or 4 times before they can get it straight. By the time they do this,they could have pulled in and backed out 3 times. Why do people do this?

It is safer in a crowded place like a restaurant or Walmart. It is dangerous to back out with cars and people coming from every direction. It is easier to back in and pull out seeing what is around you.

Easier to pull out when they leave. I personally don't.

I have no idea since I am would be lousy at it and have never tried to do so. I suppose it is easier to see other cars coming when pulling out of the parking spot.
