Parking pointers

September 4, 2009

IT’S ECO-FRIENDLY FRIDAY!

We all know little things can make a big difference, right?  They add up.  The tip for today is a little thing that can add up for the environment and your wallet.

The next time you’re parking in your favorite store’s parking lot, pull through the parking space so your vehicle is facing out.  When you leave, you can just drive right out.  It doesn’t sound like much, but backing up and pulling forward is really twice the driving.  So be more fuel-conscious the next time you pull into a parking lot and drive through.

    I bet parking in the first spot you see instead of circling two or three times would be a big plus too! No, I don’t do that as I think of it as exercise (my butt needs it) and I don’t like to park all crammed in up front.
