That's all I was saying. The old lady that can't see over the wheel, the dude with a cell phone, the car with a dent in every corner, the person that insist on driving in your blind spot, ect, ect. Sometimes It's best just to avoid them. As you've stated, body language speaks volumes.

+1^ I can't stand supermarket or shopping center parking lots... It's even more ridiculous right now after the snowstorm here in the east coast... I have zero desire to take my Stang out of the garage until this mess clears up... To many stupid ppl out there that don't care about their or other ppls property, it's not because they can't drive, it's mostly cuz of their egoes behind the wheel

Well actually I park as far away as I can in lots where noone else will and that is how that happened with the girl driving the truck. Have no idea what she was doing but looked like she drove around my car and turned to sharp in the middle of the lot where noone else parked. As to the comment I made earlier about defensive driving. Can't defend from things that happen in less then a second at the last moment that's like saying use defensive driving with a semi jack knifing the length of the road last second. All 3 situations were unavoidable as the insurance companies themselves have said to all 3 situations. I've evaded tons or near misses in the past

I always know who and what is driving around me. I spend a lot of time looking in my rear view and side mirror, and at the car in front of the car I'm in the back of.

Some people think there the only one on the road and it was put there just for them.

3 times one year.....

It's no coincidence. Last mustang I had was
White and never was in a accident. Since I've bought a black mustang people can't seem to see me or unaware I'm around them. Statistics say black vehicles are in the most accidents because they are harder to see especially at night. First accident I had no real choice as it was parked and I was not nearby. Other 2 were at night and people seem to have a bad perception. Same with my black sport bike. Been hit 2 times and I have yet to be in an accident that's been my fault.

I get that. Makes sense. I have perfect vision and don't generally have trouble seeing black cars in the dark but have a dark rainy night and they are hard to see.

Also can't say since we weren't there, but the defensive driving might help some. You just have to drive like everyone else is going to break the law and pull out in front of you or what have you. Only time I don't drive this is with my truck. People don't play chick with big trucks.
