I just make sure I reverse into parking spots. The theory I have is that from an insurance point of view, if you are reversing out, then it really doesn't matter what the other side was doing, you are at fault. You could be 90% of the way out of the parting spot and the other car decided to t-bone you, you are at fault. But if you are in Drive and going forward, then the actual rules of the road apply. Or at least that is the way it works here in Ontario.
