Do you feel paranoid walking in front of cars whose drivers are preparing to back out of a parking spot?
I have been ever since my kids were little. If I’m at a convenience store, for example, walking on the sidewalk in front of the store, and a driver is in their car preparing to back out, I don’t walk in front of them until I see them actually backing up. Same with people pulling into a parking spot in front of the curb. I’ve heard so many stories of cars being put in the wrong gear and going forward instead and crashing into the building, or people accidentally hitting the gas instead of the brakes when they’re parking. It’s not that uncommon. I never, never walk in front of a car that’s preparing to pull in or out.
This person managed to crash into our local McDonald’s yesterday. They haven’t said how it happened, but I’m pretty sure that they were parked in the lot and lost control somehow as they were backing out of their parking spot. Really lucky no one was hurt.
