Be very, very careful and watchful when you open your car door when you park.
Few years back I was pulling into parking spot. Short kid that I couldn't see his head above other cars ran out from behind another parked car. If it'd been when I was 18 when I drove with no fear, about 95% sure my car would have made contact with that kid.
Sometimes think about that kid when I'm pulling into a parking spot or driving in a parking lot. No smooshed kids under my car or as hood ornaments.
