Sucktastic near-miss: almost witness to a parking-lot pileup
I'm at the grocery and this just happened before my very eyes: I saw not 1, but 3 cars back out, and 2 weren't looking behind them. Somehow the 3rd extricated itself, but I watched a van back up and a sedan somehow get righted to pull forward. The crazy thing is that the van was pulling out at the exact rate of speed to match the sedan, so that the sedan didn't get hit, yet was still not looking out the back of the car. I don't care if you have mirrors; best practice--and in some states the LAW is that you have to physically turn around and look. I hate coming here on Sundays. For thoseof you who are familiar, it is of course Woodman's.
