I just cannot believe the chances people take while turning left from the Walmart parking lot to get out.

Yesterday, a large maroon truck came out right in front of me and I had to slam on my brakes in order to miss him. I was traveling northbound on White Mountain Road.

I rarely hit my horn but I did in this instance since it was such a close call.

I've had this happen to me before with people exiting Walmart and if they want a safer exit they should go to the White Mountain Lake Road next to Summit Hospital where there is a light on White Mountain Road to turn.

Had I hit that truck coming out, I would have T-boned him and possibly injured or killed him. Not great to have on one's conscience. I was traveling 45 miles per hour.

Oh boy I have had close calls ear that location. Sorta like when passing though Taylor/Snowflake drivers look at you the pull out in front of you. Probably wanting to get rear ended.
