I hate finding out I'm drunk after the fact...

Seriously though, the absolute only way I can back this car (rear-view cam, mind you) is to angle the mirror down to the wheel and ensure it maintains the same distance from the line the entire time I back it.

No watching for traffic, no watching for people, no watching for little baskets full of adorable kittens that I could possibly love and be allergic to my whole life. Me, the tire, and the line-that's it until maneuver complete...
