Is it safe to drive a car if reverse not working?

How would you get your car in and out of your driveway? How would you get out of a parking stall unless you pulled through and there was no curb or car blocking you? It is not uncommon to find yourself in a tight area where all you can do is reverse to get out while driving. I would say it is not safe.
