ODOT:   “Reverse angle parking, according to ODOT, is a safer type of angled parking than pulling forward into a space with the nose of a vehicle nearest the sidewalk or parking block/bumper. Instead of pulling forward into the parking spot, cars back into their spots, allowing them to make eye contact with oncoming traffic when exiting the parking space later.”

“There are many benefits to reverse angle parking,” added ODOT District 10 Traffic Engineer Eric Davis. ” Drivers will no longer have to back out blindly from their parking space, and will instead be able to see oncoming traffic.”
