I'm the same. Another technique that I use is:

- When parking in a parking lot, I always park with the drivers side closer to the lines than the passengers side.


More often than not it's just one person in the car, the driver. Well their drivers side is the passenger side of my car. Therefore I'm leaving them with more room to open their door and lessens the chance of them hitting my car.
On the other hand, when there is a passenger, it's probably a kid who can't handle swinging open the door of a big ass coupe. I've actually seen this hapen more than from another driver.
