I always go backwards up my driveway for safety sake.
These are old spring shots so you can see why I let my azaleas get so huge, besides being too lazy to prune, I find them quite beautiful in the spring. However, they do make it hard to avoid the neighborhood children so I am always edging out slowly and going backwards up my driveway makes it safer when I leave my driveway going forwards.
To show you something which gives an idea of the scale, below is a shot I took of my daughter in the spring of 2007 standing with her back to the azaleas.
