Could have ran someone over if someone was walking behind the van.

I always check this thread to look out for other cars to see if I recognize them, or make sure my car is not in this thread.

on my way home, same thing happened, the person in the wrong lane tried to merge back on the right side of the road at the cameron intersection...while failing to shoulder check.

couldn't bother to figure out what cars they were due to panic stopping/pulsing brakes (no abs)/swerving out of the way.

Had to wait 15 minutes just to get down knight street hill to Richmond. Looked like a SUV flipped to its side. All cars going down had to divert to residential zones.

^I know that feel man. But I am already used to be like that becase I live in Richmond.

Damn, a little mistake costs you $1 grand. A kid back his car in the spot without caution. Rear windshield hit the fan at the back.
Spotted that @ Aberdeen.

the window curves at the sides.. so how does the side end up having holes and the middle part stays in-tact?

Auto-glass is usually laminated, plus the tint looked like it helped hold the glass together too.

Car glass usually breaks off into small pieces rather than large shards for safety upon impact.

Isn't there a sign on the fan that clearly says "Do not back in" ?

Yes, it's a warning sign which saids do not back in. Speaking of that, I saw sedan parked in back in a spot similar there yesterday at Aberdeen and the fan was barely inches above from their trunk.

Nah, I heard the sound and went to check what happened. And I got that picture. The driver asked what he should do. I told him that just go to Daiso buy some garbadge bags and tapes to drive back to home first. Put 3 or 4 layers plastic garbadge bags make sure no water leaking and taping them properly and drive with caution because he can see nothing in the rear view mirror.

To add on top, he probably didn't use the rear view camera either to realize he was in for it!

Actually if you look at where the camera would be and the fan, you won't see the fan. It would be too high. He probably was using the camera and didn't look back to see the fan there. I've see people just look at the screen without looking around to see if it was safe to park and almost wiped out the side mirror.

I guess that maybe true but the backup camera does have a good field of view so the driver should be able to see the fan initially when backing in. I am not sure about how close before the fan is out of view.

I have used my own Lexus backing in spots beside the spot with fan and I can see the fan initially with the camera.

It goes without saying one cannot rely all on the camera and requires your typical looking at the blind spots.

Ok, at the end of 2012 the video camera got this disorder parking lot. People were out of patience to wait for a parking spot.

Was at the border on the 28th going through peace arch for a mini road trip with a few friends. I was in the middle lane (left lane, middle lane, nexus) when i notice that there was roughly 3-4 car lengths of space in the left lane so I changed lanes to the left lane (it was a dotted line). Right after doing so ,I look in the back mirror and see this possibly hispanic woman looking down and appear to be texting in her car.

Then she looks back up, and starts honking at me. She honked and tail gated me for a few minutes while still looking back and texting before she got out of her car and yelled at me saying this is not what canadians do and for me to get out of the left lane. She then wrote me a post it note telling me she'll call the police and report me to icbc. What a horrible shitty driver.

Whats funny is that a few minutes after she put the post it note on my door, a large SUV cut her off I hope she dies in a fire.
