Pedestrian right of way in a parking lot.
The other day, I got out of my car to have some lady yelling at me saying she had right of way.
While on the hunt for a parking spot, she comes out from between 2 vehicles, pushing a cart, and makes no attempt to stop, just keeps going.... now she wasn't near me or in my path and I was moving along so I kept going and didn't stop. I passed her and thought nothing of it. She wasn't near getting hit anyways.
She waits for me, and as I park and get out, she tells me..
"Do you know pedestrians always have the right of way?"
My reply was, yes at controlled intersections, but this is a parking lot, and you stepped out into my path w/o even looking... I judged I could get by you w/o having to stop, since you were close anyway, so I kept going...
She then goes off on me.. blah blah, bunch of yelling ensues. I didn't want to argue with her, so I ignored her and went in the store.
I know in some US states pedestrians have right of way only at controlled and marked intersections, but how defined is it in Alberta in regards to parking lots? Do pedestrians always have right of way?
