Witnessed a parking lot fender bender

Posted on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 3:59 PM

So in a Halifax grocery store parking lot today, my family and I witnessed one of the biggest acts of stupidity, where blame can be split 50/50. I turned my car into an aisle in the lot and had to stop right away to let a van back into a parking spot. As she was backing up, she had to stop to let a man walk behind her vehicle. He passed right behind her van, which was angled in toward the spot and had reverse lights on, and he went to his car which was parked facing nose-in to the spot next to where the van was backing into. Here's the ridiculous part: the man opens his car door, gets partially in and then back out, leaves his car door open and then walks around to the other side of his car. The lady backing her van didn't seem to notice he'd left his car door open and continued backing into the spot and stopped just after touching his car door. He came tearing around the side of his car gesturing and yelling.
WHY would you leave your car door open and leave it unattended when it's obvious someone next to you is trying to back in? He had to walk right behind this woman's van to get to his car and he MUST have noticed she was backing in. Furthermore, how did she not notice that he didn't fully get in and close his door before she began backing in? I can't imagine taking my foot off the brake before I checked to make sure there was nothing/nobody in harm's way.
---Parking Lot is 50/50 liability
