There are a lot of cars here that don't have them, but that doesn't mean not having one is legal. It's usually just a fix it ticket, but I put one on just because I don't need a reason to get pulled over.
Backing in is fine, but I consider myself pretty lucky if I can find a parking spot with just one side protected. No reason to get greedy other than douche-baggery.
