Where did I practice when I was young? The large parking lot of an out-of-business store that wasn't entirely visible from the road. The key was, do a few things, and then leave before the neighbors called the cops. Just watch out for light posts.
Lol, good advice. I pulled into a parking lot out of sheer boredom and as soon as I did a 180 I saw the police guy right there who immediately lit me up.

As he approached the vehicle I made this face as he approached the vehicle.

He asked me what I was doing and I said I was turning around.
He then asked where I live and pointed out that this is not on the way to where I live... I told him "It is now".

After a lecture on why doing doughnuts in an empty parking lot in the middle of the night is dangerous, and some sobriety tests he let me go with a verbal warning and basically was like "I don't really care that you're doing doughnuts in a parking lot, drive safe".
