Do you follow “the rules of the road” when you are in a suburban-style parking lot?
Always. Blinkers, arrows, yield to pedestrians, and keep right always apply.
Usually. I’ll follow the rules, unless a great spot opens up in a crowded row.
Seldom. Unless mall security is behind me, I’ll do whatever I want.
Never. It’s private property.
