^^^ Basically that...
Also the Fit is like a magnet to a-holes here in NYC, especially ones in big trucks... good thing the Fit is nimble, and is able to avoid them most times. Except when they park right next to you (even though you parked as far away as humanly possible in a relatively empty parking lot), and they wind up dinging your door.

I 100% agree on this. But not just trucks, sedans also! Whether or not the spaces has enough room for 2 vans and given I parked as close to the front or rear as possible, they are parked on my bumper regardless.

Most likely time to be involved in an accident. People get crazy with too much going on and thinking about what they need to do instead of thinking about driving. One reason I am staying home on black friday - ugh do not want to even think of taking my Fit out amoung the crazies!

I'm on the other side of the world and I can tell you it's the same deal here. Driving in Manila is a crazy jostle for position most days of the year, but the closer we get to the holidays, the more zombie-like or suicidal people seem to become.

Tonight was probably the worst yet. I felt like I had a target painted on my car, such was the stupidity and aggressiveness of drivers and motorcycle riders on my route.

Compared to my daily commute, a trackday is soothing. I kid you not.

I read online last night that during the Black Friday rush, 2 people were SHOT over a parking space.

lol

Whenever I go to AC, those compact car spots are almost always taken by a suv or pickup truck....assholes

Also it annoys the shit out of me that people cant park in a lot properly. I usually circle the lot looking for the back or a one sided-spot to minimize door dings. Needelss to say my passenger side has a few dings.

Its not so much that the bad drivers are out, its that most drivers are becoming more stressed and distracted while driving. Whether its a cell phone, a nagging spouse, or chatty as shit kids or passengers in the back, people dont realize how much attention they should by paying just to the road.

I see it in NYC all the time......5 car pile ups and I'm sure at least 3 of them could have avoided it if they paid more attention and didnt ride the ass of the car in front.

Wishing all the FitFreakers a safe decemeber, it only rests worse from here!
