Best Assbackward City Project: Back-In Angle Parking

Pulling out of a South Congress or Dean Keeton parking spot into oncoming traffic is no longer a daredevil feat, thanks to new (required) back-in-angle parking "stalls" along the busy strip. Okay, we know it's hard to change our parking habits, but an informal observation informs us that most drivers back in without a hitch. The payoff comes in the pullout: Just turn your ignition and drive gaily forward.
