    Never knew that I'm a creep at heart. Sometimes I love just silently creeping around a parking lot at 4 or 5 MPH. I really don't think folks hear me coming until it's too late! :scared:

    The downside is when you're creeping in a Costco parking lot behind 4 side-by-side folks walking at .5mph.... they don't even know you're there. AND NEVER MOVE.

    Now, alwaysru...I've seen the folks using walkers go marginally faster than that. Sometimes.

    I'm just naturally creepy. Don't have to do anything.

    For example, several months ago I was walking down the block and there was this woman standing by a car, never seen her before in my life. She senses someone approaching and looks up smiling, and the moment she saw my face her smile froze into a creeped out look. I wasn't doing anything unusual, just minding my own business on my morning walk.

    What's your point. In my experience, they don't move for ICE cars either.

    This. It takes an air horn to get anyone's attention.

    I usually turn up the stereo for this. I have found out the hard way that everyone around me can hear my music, even when turned to 6.

    Mine too, and now it's stuck in my head. You should play it while you drive around the parking lots

    If they were going 5mph that'd be fine, but it's usually 1-3mph. It drives my wife nuts in our Volt. A lot of people are oblivious and self-centered. They got there in a car, they'll leave in a car, but in between they don't consider that there are cars moving around all the time, and so they should look out for cars and reversing lights, drivers and cars moving around the lot.

    It amazes me that my Tesla is louder outside with the AC on than my Accord is.

    It's not louder than the 2004 Prius' A/C outside.

    In a P85D, you can be an Insane Creep... :cool:

    Of course, in a P90D, I guess that you can be a Ludicrous Creep!
