Best Answer

The person who cuts across parking spots, it's illegal. If the parking lot is private property the damage caused in an accident is a civil matter not a legal one in most cases. Traffic laws do not extend to private property.

Who responsible your driving and shopping cart hits your car?

You were driving in a parking lot and a shopping cart hit your car.

I would guess the driver of the car is a fault since a shopping cart is an inanimate object.
