I’m really trying not to get on the soapbox, but I’m driven by it earlier this year – I’ll get over it. I hope you’re standing there with me on this one.
Parking lots are subconsciously designed to scare me. They are full of danger every time I have to park. Actually the parking part isn’t too bad.I slot the van in without any issues, exit the stuff, lock it, grab the cart, do some silly shopping, go back and load up
Load the goods into the back of the van, get in, buckle up and start the vehicle. At that point, sweat starts running down the back of my shirt.
You need to reverse this 2011 beauty and make a simple plan to get home.
But no matter how many times I check each mirror or dashboard,
When I stopped the camera and sounded the alarm, someone walked behind me while backing up.
Usually 2 or 3 people.
are they blind? Can you see the 6,050-pound vehicle backing out of the parking lot and heading in the general direction? mosquito?
My head spins like an owl, almost managing a 360-degree spin, but I’m doing my best not to run into someone stupid enough to walk behind me as I back out.
Inevitably, a man strolls behind me pushing a cart full of six packs. Or a woman with a baby in a cart and no other of her two children in a cart heading to the store, or she was walking by. It doesn’t always look adult, let alone a few poppets roaming at will. This scenario scares me.
I want this woman’s DNA career to continue.
Then there’s the tribe of teenagers who giggle and shake on their way to and from this big box location. We all know teenagers are invincible.
I’m doing my best to keep it from happening, but I need their help.
I hit the brakes so hard many times because of these fears that I had to replace them much sooner than I should have.
There should be some easy solution.Warning buzzer not working or all of these
People are hard of hearing.
Perhaps you should put speakers in your van so you can loudly announce: First responders, not to mention the cleanup crew. Complex? Excellent. we are on the same page. It’s my appearance. ”
I’m happy to give way to these pedestrians, but I have to go home at some point. I can’t play tag in the parking lot for hours.
If these stores post warning signs, are they read? Signs for disabled parking appear to be respected. I’m not sure if it’s for pregnant women. We can assume there are no pregnant women on the run, so they could probably give a small sign. The employee parking sign of the month seems to be honored…at least I never parked in one of those places.
Yes, many signs are obeyed, so let’s see if we can encourage shops and restaurants to post warnings.
“If our cameras catch you walking behind your car and backing out of a parking space, your coupon will be suspended.”
That way, I think we can get the shopper’s attention without going to the dark side or shutting down the four checkout lanes.
