- Drivers swerving off the lane to avoid a speed bump. It's one thing when the lot is empty, it's another when there are parked cars and pedestrians (like me) in the vicinity.
- On a related note, drivers driving through a parking lot like it's a completely empty field despite clearly marked lines, parked cars, and pedestrians (like me -- can you guess what motivated me to post, today?).
- Pedestrians who insist on crossing at high risk locations. Not just risk for themselves, but for the drivers. Many, many years ago by my office a pedestrian decided to cross the street at one of the stupidest locations, at the stupidest time, and in a stupid fashion. Luckily, he was untouched. Not so lucky was the driver who was forced to a screeching stop, or the other two vehicles who crashed into him in sequence. But hey, the pedestrian was fine, so who cares?
