ADVICE - It's Simple! Turn Right...
Suggestion about entering a busy roadway from an apartment parking lot. So easy to safely turn right, with traffic, instead of across traffic.
I am forced to enter a reasonably busy two way road from my apartment parking lot. My parking lot is in the middle of two other close-by apartment parking lots on a rather short curved block. The short visibility distance either way on entering the road is often compounded by other vehicles legally parked parallel to the curb on both sides of my apartment exit. This makes it difficult to see other oncoming traffic or vehicles exiting the adjacent parking lots or from a nearby McDonalds Food place. Since the town core and shopping is to the left, the natural inclination is to turn left across the near lane. To do this and gain visibility both ways I must unsafely protrude the nose of my vehicle out into the near lane in order to determine when it is safe to proceed across the near lane into traffic. Often I am blindsided by another vehicle also turning left from an apartment exit, less than 100 feet away to my right also blinded by parallel parked vehicles.
While it does not entirely eliminate the oncoming hazard, I found it easier to focus on traffic in the near lane and turn right with traffic flow. This is then followed by a series of right turns to get to my destination. Time consumed: maybe two minutes to get back toward the town core. Stress level: Zero
