I too have been guilty of this. About ten years ago while working in Vegas. I was leaving my night shift waiter job from the Riviera and was trying to make a right on The Strip when all of a sudden these two old people went right in front of my car. Seconds before I had looked right and they looked like they were waiting for me. It wasn't a light, just a driveway, and then when I looked left I had an opening so I let go of the brake pedal as I looked towards the front of my car and saw this old chick in front me. I slammed on the brakes, but I still hit her. She wasn't hurt, and they said if I just gave them a ride to the Sahara hotel where they were staying everything would be ok. I gave them a ride and also gave them my contact info expecting to get sued but they never did. Lucky me.
