I like pull through parking in that it is safer for when you pull out, now facing forward. I think if you get really technical, it is ILLEGAL to cross any yellow line in a parking lot. Not a real big deal until somebody else tries to pull into the same spot at the same time, they you have damage and the law on the other person's side, so just something to note.

I try to park in the shade in the summer and in the sun in the winter whenever possible.

I park when it is fast and easy to, rather than spend too much time searching for the perfect parking space.

If you park a little farther from the building, you get more exercise.

Some big stores have the entrance on one side of the front, and the exit on the other side of the front. Park on the far side of the exit. You get a little exercise when you walk in, and it is a really short walk coming out, when your hands are now full.

Oh, and what is "EOCing"? I am new to all these acronyms.
