Back-in parking spaces in Dayton, Ohio

I was in Dayton a few weeks ago and saw these back-in parking spaces. I’ve seen pull-through spaces around the courthouse square in Newark, Ohio before (and in other towns), but never ones where you back into them. Are these common?

I can see where they allow more parking than parallel spaces. They probably don’t cause any more traffic backups than parallel spaces do when people are maneuvering their cars into them, either.
