Or, rather, a kid nearly got himself killed yesterday.
Some stuff, mainly directed at YouTube commenters, but also useful here:
- The camera is mounted higher, further forward, and further right than my eyes. I was watching the minivan’s windows, and the kid was too short to appear in my field of vision, even though he’s very clear to the camera.
- These kids were running around my car and the minivan (which isn’t even the one they came from) before I started the engine, so I chose to pull out forward in order to have better visibility. Backing out is more proper, sure, but a lot more risky in this situation.
Moral of the story: Keep an eye on your children and make sure that they know how dangerous a parking lot can be.
