As many of us are working towards our driver’s license, or have received it within the past year, it’s an overwhelming experience to drive on your own for the first few months. Obeying all traffic laws and paying attention to everything on the road is tough and at times may be stressful.
Enter the parking lots of Beaverton, that stress is multiplied by over a million, easily. Cars are darting in and out of spots at high speeds, territory has become a factor in where to park, and one false park job could result in your car being covered in car marker. Good luck!
People are too reckless and complacent, they don’t understand that they’re driving a ton, possibly two, of heavy machinery. Most people don’t understand the point of having a mirror, and most only use it to clean their teeth. Also, the faster car does not have the right out of way, sometimes people in senior lot fail to understand that.
And car marker, why? I get that senior lot is something passed down and that tradition unites us, but the solution to the problem is nonsense. Passive aggressive comments written with marker on peoples cars will not fix anything. In fact, it motivates us, even more, to park there just to upset you.
Driving into parking lots at high speeds and using car markers are not proper driving etiquette, or at least I hope. Be careful while entering the school and understand that it’s okay to slow down and maybe be nice for once.
