For most of us, driving forward is never a problem. We can see where we are going and are able to maneuver our vehicles according to what we see. It's backing up that causes a lot of problems.

We've all seen the fender benders in the parking lots where people can't see where they are going when backing up and bump into another car. We've heard of the accidents that have happened when someone backed over another person because they couldn't see them. We've probably even backed into something ourselves.

Driving in reverse takes skill. Your brain needs to be able to flip things around and you have to be able to orient yourself based on seeing things in a different direction. It is a skill that can come in VERY handy.
