Traffic problems at grocery store parking lot

Cars routinely park very close to the west exit of Everybody’s Whole Foods. It’s very difficult to see oncoming traffic.

Management does not seem interested in a no-parking yellow curb. A manager raised the following objections to a no-parking zone near the west exit: parking at Everybody’s is at a premium; that the problem exists only on weekends (not true as patrons know); that safety is the responsibility of the driver exiting onto the highway; and drivers should be careful and ease out to a place where they can see past an adjacent parked car.

It seems Everybody’s won’t improve safety at their west exit. Possibly the city could paint a long yellow line because the store won’t.
