Okay, after nearly getting into an accident AGAIN at Target this week, I decided to bring up this subject. Maybe I'm wrong and getting worked up over nothing...
Here's the deal: Almost any time I'm in a large parking lot, and I'm attempting to back out of my parking space, a car who is "just passing through" comes flying past me causing me to slam on my brakes.
Sometimes they are way at the other end as I begin my back-up, sometimes they actually turn into my aisle after I've begun backing up. But, clearly, each time, I've begun to back up FIRST before their approach.
What is your understanding of parking lot etiquette? Who has the right of way in this situation? It seems no one ever yields to the car in reverse unless they are waiting for that parking spot.
Tell me people, do cars in a parking lot yield according to who started first or do cars backing up always yield to cars driving past? For my sanity, I must know!!!
