Look at it this way...if you don't you will get into A LOT of trouble for hitting a pedestrian. Pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way.AnswerThere is no single answer for all situations, except that you need to drive with adequate care.
No, absent a local statute to the contrary, pedestrians do NOT always have the "right of way", and they should be reminded of this with appropriate use of your horn, if there is time to encourage them to act smarter. When there are sidewalks, crosswalks, or safety islands, the pedestrians should use them, watch for moving traffic, and take responsibility when they don't. However, yes, you should "yield" to a pedestrian who is attempting to be hit by a car, if you can do so, in the same sense you should "yield" to a moose or a light pole that don't know any better.
In a shopping center parking lot, a driver should expect random pedestrians, inattentive drivers, rolling shopping carts, hidden obstacles, and other hazards that require extra care.
It is considered poor practice to hit a careless pedestrian or a car that is parked illegally, but in plain sight, if you can avoid it, making you liable if you don't. But pedestrians are often found "At Fault" for creating the hazard that caused a collision through their own actions, such as "darting into the street", "crossing against the light", "opening door on traffic side of parked car," or other unexpected behaviour that puts them into the path of oncoming traffic.
In California a driver must always yield right of way to a perestrian in a crosswalk.
A pedestrian guardrail can be a hindrance when a pedestrian isn't paying attention and walks or rides their bike into it. It can also be a hindrance if they're not installed the right distance apart in the parking lot and shopping carts can't be pushed through.
You must be at least 20 feet from the crosswalk. (§ 4179 Stopping, standing or parking.)
that person who hit you
all merry hill parking is free
Keeping someone from parking by parking in their designated spot
The area must first be officially designated as a 'no parking' zone. Then the board can authorize installation of 'no parking' signs where it is not allowed.
It being marked and designated as such.

20 feet from a crosswalk. However, be aware that this answer differs state to state depending on the laws in that state, and what the Department of Motor Vehicles deems safe and appropriate.
Always come to a full stop before parking and park in only designated motorcycle spaces.

When you are done with your Shopping Cart, you can return it to the store, leave it in a Shopping Cart Corral, or a Shopping Cart Area, which usually says "Please return Shopping Carts Here!" Thank You or it may say " Please help keep costs low by returning your Shopping Cart Here! Thank You". If there are no cart corrals or such things like that in the parking lot, then leave it in the parking lot, just find a spot where a cart will fit, without damages any cars. Do Not Take Shopping Carts Off Store Premises!! It's the Law!!
They are never parked on the runway . They park on taxiways designated for parking.
those rack things that you get carts from in parking lots
If you have a shopping cart moving because you pushed it in the parking lot and it then goes on to grass, it will slow down. The opposite would be true if you started from grass, gave a shove and then it moved on to a parking lot.
A shopping centre or mall has a large parking area and many different individual stores. A department store may or may not have a parking area, and it has different labels, not stores. The entire store is divided into departments, whereas a shopping centre has different stores on all floors.
You were driving in a parking lot and a shopping cart hit your car. Did someone push it out in front of you or did you hit it while it was just sitting there waiting for the parking lot attendant to come get it out of the hot sun. I would guess the driver of the car is a fault since a shopping cart is an inanimate object.
