I'll certainly give someone a pass if the lot is totally full.. So long as they're not sitting, blocking the row for more than a minute or two.
Just stop shopping at walmart.

And not having to spend time looking for your car!

I love being able to see around the car when walking from it in the driveway to the front door, or to illuminate the area when walking up to it on a dark street.
I don't think it's a bad idea, but they're using the wrong lights to do it. They could have come up with a better design than just using the reverse lights.

My GMs don't do that. Maybe I have defective ones.

Whats worse is when you think you see an open spot so you whip in then have to slam on your brakes to keep from hitting the motorcycle thats parked there.

ANY white light on the rear of the car to light up the area would be thought of as a reverse light by you guys. So what SHOULD they have done to light up the area in the dark as a safety and security measure?

I personally think motorcycles should have dedicated parking up front, next to the handicapped parking. They need to stay off the sidewalks.

Well the developers who built the stores don't think so. And a motorcycle is a licensed motor vehicle just like a car.

a lot of cars with keyless entry illuminate the interior when you hit the unlock button, some luxury cars have lights under the outside mirrors to illuminate the exterior of the car.
