If you find you have too much momentum after reaching your preferred parking spot, continue coasting further down the row or "orbiting" a spot until you can roll to a stop in position without touching the brakes. (Depending on traffic in the lot, obviously.)
I'm with him ... if you reach a parking space with to much momentum keep circling? Screw it just park ... I would think, the time wasted idling while you coast is more than the time it takes to brake and shut your car right?

Or if you coast with engine off, then why dos it matter, brake and park ...

Or did I miss some point here ?
