Here's the thing about the Brentwood Promenade. It's very popular, very crowded and the parking lot is a nightmare because the spaces are too small and too close together. They do this, I'm sure, to cram as many cars in as possible. However, the very worst is the driving lane in front of Trader Joes. It is very very close to the entrance and for some reason people who shop there think because they are on foot, can just zip out the door and into the the lane without even a glance at cars which are there.
I just do not understand how people can do this and it happens all the time. Out the door they come, right into traffic.
Here's what I saw the other day.
First all the traffic trying to leave the area.
The truck is right in front of the exit door.
Then comes this woman who looked neither right or left, just zipped across with no hesitation.
Neither did the other two people look. The original black truck is way ahead while I waited for these people to cross. I realize pedestrians have the right of way, but too often they appear suddenly when cars are already moving past the store.
