Day 94 in The Beat Handbook, titled "On Parking," was inspired by the above passage from On The Road.
The Kerouaction? Park in dark spots with your front pointed in the direction you want to go. The latter makes for quick getaways when it's time to go go go. Why in the dark? Then you can use your car for nefarious beat purposes and not be under surveillance by squares who'll call the bobbies.
