Yes I do the same! While out, or parking my vehicles in the garage or in the driveway. There are several reasons!
1. When I was in LE on one occasion I had pulled frontward into a parking spot at a restaurant to eat one evening on duty. We got an emergency call and two units scrambled from the meal and our table. I jumped into my squad car and began to back out very quickly! Making ready for the light and siren emergency run. Out of my peripheral vision I saw a shadow or something and slammed on the brakes. An elderly woman had walked out from behind a van that was parked next to me and directly behind my car. She was on a walker also and I stopped just in time as the rear bumper touched the walker side rail. No harm to her except being frightened as I certainly was and I have never forgotten that night all these years later. Scared the ****** out of me to think I could have killed her because I was pulled into the spot and backing out and unable to see clearly. So I always back in even today or as you stated pull through.
2. At home if something ever goes on I am ready to quickly deploy directly without having to back up, stop, turn around and then respond.
I am with you on this idea! Nothing wrong with your thought!
