That simple. Just the kind of bustling traffic that give you a favorable in/out rate. Add that expectation in the equation and you just might get closer to a statistically sound universal solution.

At the grocery store, I try to get close to the cart corral to minimize the wasted time putting the cart away. At work, when the weather is bad, I park as close as possible to a building entrance to minimize exposure to the elements, which leads to a longer total walk because that closest entrance is far from my office.

At mass attendance events (e.g., football games), it also minimizes time spent trying to get out of the lot, which may swamp the other two measures.
