Many parking lot scrapes and collisions are a result of people backing out of parking spaces. If you can drive out of the space it is much safer. When backing into the spot, you are steering around fixed objects, not moving objects you might not be able to see.
1) Find a parking spot that you can drive through to the other side so you can face out without backing in.
if there are no spots like this:
2) Back into a parking spot
Avoid parking spots at the end of a row
Avoid parking spots that have adjacent poorly parked cars (angles etc)
I also avoid parking next to other cars to avoid door dings etc, and I don't mind the extra walk to park further out in the lot - free exercise.
Strictly speaking one should always back into driveways also for the same reason! Almost even more so as road speeds are higher than parking lot speeds. A little harder when also needing to back into a tight garage though, so I usually don't do it...
