I meant angled parking as in perpendicular parking to the road. Like that.
Should always park in reverse.

Which is not as bad, of course, as people coming from my right who indicate left when they're going straight. Therefore they almost hit me when I go because I assumed that when they indicated left because they were indeed intending to turn left!
ETA: There is a downside to reverse parking. When I want to get the pram out of my car because I have a RAV4 and it's got the stupid swinging open door that's a PITA.
It's all well and good to go slowly and use your mirrors and check for traffic but it doesn't help when you're doing all that while trying back out and from between two Landcruisers while some guy who feels that because he's got right of way he'll just zoom past you even though he can see your reversing lights but you can't see him.

I agree it is definitely safer to reverse in. That is why in a lot of towns with angle parking in nsw have actually made it a rule of that town that the parking is actually reverse in in the main streets.
