Those diagonal lined spaces next to the handicapped parking spots are not parking spots. Leave them clear so people in lift vans can put down the ramp and exit. That goes for all including those with handicapped placards.

Get off your cell phone! In line, in the car, in the restaurant. Pay attention to. What is going on around you!

I've seen people almost get hit because other cars will whip around the car that stopped to let people cross.

We have crosswalks that pedestrians can turn signal lights on when crossing the road to make people aware they are about to cross, and people don't stop.

Yes, I agree with others that pedestrians walking on a left green arrow can wait a couple a couple more seconds to get the walk signal. Please remember it goes both ways; once I get the signal, I only have so much time to cross the road myself. 2 or 3 cars trying to beat the yellow arrow not only cuts off the traffic that now have the green light, but you have shortened the amount of time I have to cross the road. I can't walk as fast as you can drive. You will get to your destination long before I do.
This exactly! I walk to work as well and my crosswalk does not have a light an I take my life in my hands crossing everyday because of drivers not wanting to stop an let me cross. Pedestrians do have the right of way light or no light

That yellow light on the traffic signal doesn't mean "hit the gas".

If I am standing on the edge of the zebra crossing, while my class of preschoolers on a field trip walks past, don't bother honking and waving me out of the way. What do you expect? That I will step aside and let you run them over? No, what will happen is that said preschoolers will all turn to look at you, slowing down in the process. And I will still protect them.

That's not true for all states. I'm guessing it is for yours, but for mine it is not. The center lane can be used as a staging area of sorts for cars turning onto the roadway. It may be used to stop if need be and wait for traffic to clear before merging, or simply for merging.

I do NOT want to hear your conversation on the cell phone and plz don't shop on THANKSGIVING DAY. That's an abomination.

I especially don't want to hear your cell phone conversation in the restroom. And there's no conversation you need to be having with me badly enough that I need to know that's where you're calling from.

lol I agree. When people go to checkout and stay on phone and clerk is working it is RUDE to ignore them. I bet if rang up incorrectly the phone one would have a fit.

Where I live it is the same it may be used to stop and wait to merge.

Have not seen this one yet & keep wondering if it's only me ???

Recording wit iPad - all you need is one person to put the iPad in the air and successfully block the view for many rows behind them ,not to mention make it impossible to take a picture or record anything from behind.

The worst part of it? imagine few of those in front of with bright glowing screen when in dark surroundings.

I think is should be banned along with texting while driving.

If you want to follow me in the parking lot while I'm leaving so that you can get my parking spot, that's fine. However, you should notice that I have 5 children ages 9 and under. 3 of them are in car seats. There's a stroller that needs to be folded. I am going to put my packages in the car, secure everyone in the proper type of seat, put the stroller in the car, etc., before I leave. I'm not going to let the baby roll around in the car while I drive because you're anxious to have my spot. You're just going to have to wait.

Stop means stop. And Left Turn Only means just that. "No Left Turn", "No U-Turn", and "No Mall Access" signs mean what they say, too.


And to reiterate Talking Hands' message: don't park on the access area next to a handicap parking space!!! Yesterday morning, in a virtually empty Dunkin Donuts parking lot, a woman was getting into her car that was parked fully on that spot. It was between the two empty handicap spaces, which were each flanked by at least four empty spaces. And I didn't look around the corner to see if any of those spaces were taken - but one customer exited as I walked in, and there was one customer inside - so my guess is... no.
