The act of getting a jump on a long line of traffic in a parking lot because some reckless pedestrian has decided to walk out in front of a car. Most beneficial when needing a left turn.
Driver: "Whoa! That fat lady almost got clipped by that Pinto."
Passenger: "Yeah, but that tub-of-lard cut off those other ten cars. Left turn please."
Driver: "Saved by the Pedestrian Pick!"
