Okay, so, when navigating a parking lot, for how long must one be actually in a moving car, before the onus of accountability falls on those who suddenly zip into the previously clear aisle? Or, for that matter, how long does one’s car need to be in motion before it becomes acceptable to squash the pedestrian who clearly sees you from across the way, but in what can only be described as a desire to play chicken sullenly reinforce their right of way as a pedestrian, decides to significantly speed up their gait so as to walk in front of your car?
Just asking for a friend.
oh. went to the market?
Why yes, yes I did. And it ended well, but it was no thanks to some of the people I encountered. I mean, no! It wasn’t me…it was a friend. Of course, a friend.
“,,,decides to significantly speed up their gait so as to walk in front of your car?”
I just assume these people are pissed off in general, probably for good reason.
They might be in bad moods, I don’t know. All I know is it’s annoying when you can see that they’re breaking out into jog just to get in front of a moving car – from a distance, not like they’re close and trying to just rush past. It’s like they have an insurance scam plan in their head or something.
Is there a law against hitting them, where you live?
Yeah, unfortunately. I actually think it’s pretty universal…at least in the U.S. You’re really not supposed to run over pedestrians. 😀
