I hit a car which crossed the entrance way, from the right, of the parking lot I was entering. The other driver's insurance company is saying that he had the right of way because he was coming from the right. I've never heard of any entrance to any parking lot anywhere in which the vehicle exiting the road way didn't have the right of way. Otherwise, the cars entering the parking lot would be forced to stop in the flow of traffic on the roadway causing major problems. When stating this to the agent, they contend that we were far enough into the parking lot that the entrance was not a consideration. I had just crossed the sidewalk at the entrance and he came from the row of parking spaces on the right, continued on across the the entrance when I struck him. Even if were were further into the parking lot, isn't the row that has no parking spaces on it considered to have the right of way over the rows with spaces? They always seem to be the main drive while the rows with spaces give yeild to them.
Below is an idea of where I,(car A) was approaching from on the street and turned left into the parking lot, and where he,(car B) came from at my right as I crossed the sidewalk. We hit just past the sidewalk, and were maybe ten feet from the road. I hit him straight into the driver's side.
I appreciate your time and look forward to tour reply.
